You are probably noticing more bugs right about now with the heat from the sun blazing down. But we can’t necessarily blame the sun for the increase pest population. In fact, the pest population has probably not increased at all. Maybe we only notice more bugs in the summer because they invade homes for cooler conditions and shelter.
But for some pests like house flies, reproduction occurs most rapidly in warm weather. But there are tactics you can implement to reduce pest activity on your property. Here are some common pests invading your home & what you can do to deter their presence near you:
House Flies – Take out trash often & place garbage in a secure trash receptacle. Churn compost and organic waste frequently since that is where flies lay eggs. Wash out drink cans and bottles before disposing.
Ants – Clean up food crumbs and drink spills daily. Follow the ant trail and seal areas where they are entering your home. Call a professional ant control company for heavy infestations.
Earwigs – Clear the clutter in the immediate vicinity of your property for effective earwig control. Including landscape, crawlspaces, and around outdoor faucets. Use weather stripping on doors. Seal around windows and where pipes and electrical wiring enter your home.
Effectively preventing pests is near impossible without a professional pest control service. The tips stated above coincide with the service to create an ultimate pest barrier.
