There’s a long list of different pests that can take up residence in your home’s outdoor areas if the right conditions are in place. And although it’s best to leave actively fighting pests to our team of pest control pros at Mosquito Hunters™, there are several steps you can take on your own to make your yard in the Manhasset area less welcoming to mosquitoes, ticks, and other invasive pests. We’ll highlight a few of these steps below to give you a head start.
4 Tips for Keeping Pests at Bay
Preventing pest infestations can be done by taking a few key preventative measures. Let’s take a closer look at a few of these key precautions:
Mow Tall Grass
Tall grass provides a wide range of pests with a place to hide, and walking through these areas allows them to attack you or crawl onto your clothing. Simply mowing tall grass and keeping it manicured can significantly reduce the number of pests you run into on a day-to-day basis.
Cut Back Overgrown Greenery
Overgrown trees and shrubs can also provide pests with hiding spots. Trimming back the greenery in your yard, particularly next to your home’s entrances and any walkways, can effectively limit pest infestations.
Eliminate Standing Water
Standing water attracts mosquitoes and provides them with breeding grounds, which is why it’s essential to eliminate it where possible. Effectively managing water features and eliminating potential standing water sources like puddles and clogged gutters can help you keep mosquito numbers lower over time.
Clean Up Clutter
Clutter in your yard, like piles of leaves or collections of fallen leaves, gives hiding places to animals that can carry pests into your yard. To cut down on pest infestations, it’s important to eliminate these hiding places to keep these pest-carrying animals at bay.
