Home Insect Control – Tips For Every Home Owner
There are plenty of things that you can do around the home for a variety of insect issues. First of all, if you have a lot of mosquitoes around your home you should investigate your garden and surrounding area nearby. Mosquitoes breed in standing water, so if there are plenty of puddles and small containers around your home that will hold water then this is a perfect incubator for mosquito larvae. A good starting point is to eliminate all sources of standing water. If you have water out for animals make certain that you dump that water out and add fresh water on a daily basis.
Good screens on windows can be an effective barrier to flying insects. If you must have windows open, then close the screens and ensure that there are no gaps. Choose fine screens that are more effective at keeping out a wide variety of bugs, not just the larger ones.
Check the exterior of your home for cracks and holes where bugs can access the inside of your home. Seal up cracks with caulking, cover holes up with screen or netting, and replace any rotten boards on the exterior of your home. Check the eaves of your roof for any holes where flying insects can get in because once they find a way in they will start to build a colony in your attic.
Move furniture out on a regular basis, especially if you have children or pets, to look for toys, hair and food bits. Wipe counters down to remove any trace of food that may be on the counter at any time. Ants and cockroaches are attracted to easy food sources and you may think that crumbs are not a food source, but they can be for bugs! Remove rubbish from your home, especially food scraps, and store it in a container with a tight lid if you cannot dispose of it immediately.
