Insect Control

Outdoor Insect Prevention

With the warmer temps approaching it time to start breaking out all the outdoor furniture.  Get those patios and deck hosed off and cleaned up for all those outdoor gatherings.  What does that also mean, bugs and lots of them.  

The first thing that can be done is to clean those gutters.  Debris and leaves get stuck, causing areas where water builds up and  mosquitoes and other insects can thrive.  We always recommend cleaning them 1 to 2 times a year, usually spring and fall.  

Take a look around your property and look for any standing water, maybe some old flower pots or left over winter toys. 

Change out those lightbulbs….Replace your white bulbs with yellow bulbs, the yellowish light is undesirable to some insects.  

Also here are a couple plants that help control the insects. So on your next trip to the home store stop and grab a couple of these plants, and plant them around all those hang out spots.
