How to Manage Summer Pest Problems?

Canada’s summer is a season for enjoying the warm weather, long days, and getting the most from outdoor activities. However, a rise in temperatures leads to increased pest activity. Pest issues might disrupt your summers, whether you are spending your summers in the city or the countryside. These summer pests can cause damage to your home and pose a threat to health. Therefore, to keep pests out of your space, Advance Pest Control is here to provide you with summer pest control tips. Cleanliness in pest prevention Another pest-proofing tip is to keep your home clean. Pests and insects are attracted to food, water, and garbage. Thus, store your food in airtight containers, do not keep fruits in the open, clean up spills promptly, regularly vacuum your house, and sweep to eliminate any leftover food spills or crumbs. Moreover, wash your dishes and pet bowls daily. Advance pest control recommends deep cleaning in kitchen and dining areas to ensure no food particles are left that might attract pests. Fix Water Leaks and Moisture Problems Pests thrive in damp environments, such as mosquitoes, and ants. Addressing problems related to water leakages and moisture in your property can help prevent pest issues. Repair any leaks promptly, ensure proper drainage system, and utilize de-humidifiers in areas such as basements and bathrooms. Additionally, poor drainage system leads to standing water. Certain pests only need a small amount of water to create a large army of pests. Therefore, regularly check areas that are prone to store unclean water. Seal Entry Points Pests can enter your home even through cracks and crevices. Seal any cracks or tiniest entry Pest control experts such as Advance Pest Control, suggest paying special attention to cracks in basements, bathrooms, or kitchens. These areas are damp and potential spots for pests. Additionally, install screens and nets on doors and windows to ensure air circulation without pests. Proper Waste Management Garbage is the site of attracting pests. Ensure your garbage cans are tightly sealed, and clean the cans regularly. The garbage cans should be placed away from your home. Moreover, wash the cans carefully to remove any residue. If you have compost, then manage it responsibly to prevent unwanted visitors. Look for proper waste management practices in summer to have a pest-proof residential area. Chemical Pest Solutions Sometimes DIY methods go in vain and are not enough to control summer pests. Chemical pest solutions are therefore used as the last resort. However, use chemical solutions responsibly. Always read instructions and take preventive measures. Moreover, use environment-friendly products. Also use only targeted applications, specific for the type of pests. This will minimize the impact of chemicals on other non-target species and environment.
