After you turn to us at Total Pest Solutions to provide you with outdoor pest control services, you will likely see a significant decrease in the number of bothersome pests that decide to take up residence on your property. To get even more out of our outdoor pest control services, there are a few things you can do in your yard in addition to our solutions.
- Get Rid of Standing Water. Many different types of insects are attracted to moisture. For this reason, it’s critical that you manage the moisture level in your yard. You can do this by monitoring your yard during the rainy season for drainage problems and watering your yard earlier in the day.
- Make Lawn Care a Priority. Like water, bugs and pests like to make homes for themselves in tall grass, fallen leaves, and other types of foliage. Due to this, it’s a good idea to eliminate these hiding places by keeping your lawn trimmed short, removing dead plants, and keeping your bushes and shrubs trimmed.
- Clean Your Gutters. Keeping your home’s gutters free from debris is an important part of your overall outdoor pest control plan. In many cases, clogged gutters can result in water overflowing and causing small pools of water to develop around the base of your house.
- Don’t Let Food Sources Develop. Pests will go wherever they can find food. To keep pests from taking over your yard, make sure that full garbage bags don’t get left lying around and that fallen fruit from your trees or extra pet food gets cleaned up as quickly as possible.
