The weather is warming up and with warmer weather comes an influx of pests. Nothing ruins a BBQ more than a swarm of bugs, and keeping pests away can become a priority for most of us in the summertime. In this post we have some top tips on keeping the pests away this summer.
BLOCKING THEIR ENTRY TO YOUR HOME
The first thing you should be doing is covering any holes, any gaps and any cracks in your home to ensure there is no way that those pesky pests can enter your home. Check around your doors and windows especially as these are the most common entry holes that bugs can find.
CLEANING UP YOUR KITCHEN
Having a really thorough clean of your kitchen can make a huge difference to your home and the amount of pests they attract. Finding crumbs is striking gold for ants, and they can spot them from a mile off in the warmer months. Keep your kitchen clean and you will minimise your chances of finding pests.
KEEP YOUR GARDEN WELL MAINTAINED
Keeping your garden well maintained will help with keeping an influx of pests at bay. If your garden is unkempt it allows a playground for pests including spiders and even rats. Get your garden sorted to keep pests away.
KEEP YOUR OUTSIDE BINS SECURED
Keeping your bins secure and not allowing them to overflow is so important to the mission of keeping pests away. In the warmer months, your bins will smell worse and rotting will be a faster process, attracting all sorts of pests, big and small to your home.
EAT YOUR FRUIT & VEG WHILST IT’S FRESH
Not only will your fruit and veg taste better, it will keep the pests away. As touched on above, perishable produce goes rotten a lot faster in the warmer conditions, so it is imperative that you only buy what you can eat and keep everything as fresh as you possibly can.
USE A PEST CONTROL SERVICE
