While our professional service is required to destroy these pests and maintain peace around your property, there are also a number of good habits you can develop that will allow you to minimize pest activity. Let’s take a look at our expert recommendations.
DIY Pest Control Tips
- Mosquitoes. Reducing standing water should be your primary objective, as mosquitoes cannot breed on any other surface. Limiting rain collection in your backyard and keeping your rain gutters clear of blockages can reduce the potential for mosquito breeding. Mosquito bites are incredibly irritating, so you don’t want to take any chances. When spending time outdoors, consider using skin repellent and Citronella candles to create a more peaceful atmosphere.
- Ticks. An anti-tick barrier around the perimeter of your yard can be an excellent method of defense. This tactic will be even more useful if your property is next to any wooded or bushy areas. Ticks love the shade, so placing a couple of feet of exposed gravel or wood chips between the shaded woods and your yard makes them less likely to migrate onto your property.
- Fleas. These tiny pests can be transferred indoors by your cats or dogs, so be sure to consult your vet and utilize approved flea prevention protocols. This will have the double benefit of protecting your animals from tapeworms and other flea-related illnesses while also protecting yourself from the frustration of dealing with fleas inside your home.
