x Make Plans Early to Rid your Home and Property of Insects
It’s almost that time of year again, picnics, sporting events, hiking, fishing, and yes—biting, annoying bugs. Get yourself going early this year to make sure that the bugs don’t win. There are simple things you can do to get ready so that you’re prepared. This summer, health authorities expect the mosquitoes arrive in the United States so it’s especially important to make sure mosquitoes don’t start breeding and cause infestation problems.
One of the first things you need to do is to rid your property of anything that holds water—old pet dishes, bottle caps, hub caps, old tires, broken dishes. This will help prevent mosquitoes and other insects from breeding. Another thing you can do is to repair any cracks or holes in your house and replace or repair old screens. Also, make sure outside doors closed completely and air conditioners are working so that windows can be shut when hot weather sets in.
Another important consideration is to make sure to use natural mosquito repellents and insect killing devices to keep you, family and guests safe. The following are suggestions for using some of our more popular and effective insect control products. Remember, you can use these devices together in strategic locations throughout the house and outdoors to get complete coverage. (Just click on the product name to go to ordering page)
