10 Summer Pest Control Tips

Are you ready for summer? We are! But so are summer pests. Stinging insects, carpenter ants, ticks, mosquitoes, flies, spiders and others are getting more active as the temperature rises. To help you enjoy a summer with minimal pest issues, we have a few summer pest control tips for you to consider:

  1. Repair holes in window screens to help keep insects out
  2. Avoid leaving standing water outside in areas such as kiddie pools for prolonged periods of time
  3. Pick up food and drinks after cookouts so you don’t have uninvited guests looking for their own meal
  4. Fix cracks and small holes in your home’s foundation so pests don’t invade
  5. Clean out your gutters so water doesn’t sit in them
  6. Maintain a clean landscape around your home
  7. Don’t leave doors or windows open without a screen
  8. Keep your kitchen free of crumbs and spills
  9. Make sure your basement is dry
  10. Enlist the help of an experienced pest control company to provide preventative treatments on your property
