Tips for Preventing Pests This Summer
Seal Your Home
A thoroughly sealed home is your first line of defense against pests of any kind. In many cases, the easiest way to treat a pest infestation is to block the entryway. A simple inspection around your home is usually all it takes to discover openings. Start by checking your window screens for holes, as defective screens are one of the easiest ways for mosquitoes, flies, and other pests to make their way indoors. Be sure to evaluate your doors and walls for cracks and gaps as well, and seal any openings you find as soon as possible.
The kitchen is the heart of your home, and it’s also the first place pests will go when they’ve made their way in. Crumbs, spilled liquids, and trash will all function as pest magnets, so clean your kitchen regularly if you want to minimize the chance of unwanted guests showing up for dinner. We recommend sweeping, wiping countertops, and cleaning out your fridge and pantry each week.
Eliminate Standing Water
As we noted in one of our previous blogs, mosquitoes can lay eggs in almost any amount of standing water — even if it’s the size of a quarter! It’s easy to spot pooling water near your grill, patio furniture, and in flower pots, but you should also check areas that don’t get as much visibility. Look in your gutters for pools of water caused by clogs, check any objects you’ve stored on the sides of your home, and pick up any toys that have been left outside by your children or pets.
Invest in In2Care
Checking for standing water is great, but if you’re looking for a complete mosquito control solution that takes the hassle out of the entire process, then you need to invest in In2Care. In2Care works by using mosquitoes to do the hard work for you. The trap contains a non-toxic, eco-friendly larvicide that the mosquitoes will bring back to the nests, subsequently killing larvae at each site they visit. The larvicide will then kill the host within a few days, ensuring that it won’t have a chance to lay more eggs or continue to bite humans.
In2Care has been tested and evaluated by numerous scientific entities, including the Environmental Protection Agency, and the results have been nothing short of impressive. We know that many of our clients are looking for eco-friendly pest control services that won’t harm their landscape or their pets, and In2Care provides the perfect solution!
