Practical Pest Prevention Tips and Minimizing Chemicals
As we approach the summer season, there are pest prevention tips that the professionals at Lady Bug Pest Control Specialist suggest you do. Lady Bug is an Eco-Friendly pest control company and we want to offer recommendations to minimize pest activity around your home, with good common sense practices. In addition to the practical tips listed below, a regular frequency of pest control service is very helpful, particularly when dealing with poisonous pests like scorpions and black widows.
We would highly encourage people that have a pest control service only having the outside serviced. Much of the pest activity originates outside, so a technician’s time is better spent taking good care on the exterior of your home. This also minimizes unnecessary exposure to chemical in your home environment for both people and pets. Lady Bug Eco-Friendly Pest Control offers alternative pest control treatments that minimize chemicals that are applied in your home. Our alternative treatments are very effective, and reduce health hazards in your environment.
Tips to reduce pest activity:
Minimize food sources with good sanitation habits.
Empty garbage regularly.
Cut back any tree branches touching house and dead limbs.
Keep hummingbird feeders away from house.
Minimize excessive moisture conditions (over watering, pipe leaks and standing water).

Keep palm trees trimmed and shrubs trimmed.
Minimize river rock and railroad ties in your landscape designs.
Keep fruit that falls from trees picked up.
