Have you been starting to fill up your summer calendar with fun activities to do this summer? But, have you thought about how awesome it would be to do it without pests. And, just to clarify your children are not considered pests. Let’s dive into all the different ways you can try and avoid pests this summer season.
Summer Fun: Check for…
Your backyard should be the perfect place for all your summer fun. Here are definitely things to look out for. Firstly, make sure you check for any pooling of water. This can be a breeding ground for mosquitos. Check even the a/c to see if it’s leaking. Anything as small as a bottle cap of water can invite pests. Secondly, check for clutter and debris. Everything from piles of leaves to fallen branches, to rotting fruit, can attract pests to your yard. Thirdly, make sure you’re taking care of your yard. Tall grass can harbor ticks, anthills, and fleas. Lastly, make sure to store your firewood correctly. Keeping it off the ground makes it harder to attract pests and This way ants and termites can not easily access the wood.
Summer Fun: Inspect…
You probably do these things on the regular, but sometimes it is easy to fall thru the crack when you are trying to make plans for summer. Firstly, make sure you are keeping doors and windows closed as much as possible if they don’t have a screen on them. Secondly, make sure to throughly check your screens to make sure there is damage and holes that could easily allow pests to get in. Thirdly, Inspect your outdoor equipment or furniture. These can be a breeding ground for spiders, so keep an eye out for eggs and webs to make sure these are handled correctly. These can also house wasps nests so be sure to really be careful. Lastly, make sure to inspect whenever you put your food or drinks down that it is fully covered to not attract anything.
