Phoenix Pest Control: 5 Things to Do to Keep Bugs at Bay This Spring

The season of blooming flowers, lush trees, and clear blue skies has finally arrived in Arizona. But while it’s the best time to get out, take a stroll by the park, and melt those winter blues, critters such as ants, spiders, scorpions, termites and a lot more may already be moving into your home. You can find them in your bed or inside your house structure, or they might surprise you from out of the blue. Worst, they may sting, and you’re probably aware that some can be really dangerous. Follow these tips from a Phoenix pest control specialist to keep these unwelcome visitors out:

Phoenix Pest Control 5 Things to Do to Keep Bugs at Bay This Spring

# 1 Block bug entryways

Bugs tend to sneak through even the narrowest slits. Repair worn weather-stripping and torn window screens; opt for fine mesh screenings as replacement. Add tight-fitting thresholds on your exterior doors, and fill in cracks in you fascia boards, foundation, and exterior walls using caulks or other types of sealants.

# 2 Keep your home dry

Just like us, insects need water in order to survive. Sinks filled with stagnant water or puddles of water on bathroom floors, basements, attics, or under the sink serve as drinking fountains for a burgeoning insect population. Get rid of these insect-drawing moisture pockets by fixing leaks in your home, ensuring a proper drainage system, and using a dehumidifier if necessary.

# 3 Seal your food containers well

When food is out of reach, there’s no reason for the bugs to stay. Keep food like cereals and grains in airtight containers. If possible, keep your fresh fruits covered to prevent bug access. Also, keep those pet bowls clean and your counter, flooring, and carpet free of food crumbs and drippings.

# 4 Clean up your yard

All bugs come from the outside. Unpruned trees and shrubs that come in contact with your home usually serve as these insects’ bridges. Thus, ensure that your greeneries are planted at least a foot from your house and have them trimmed regularly to keep the bugs from reaching your roof, doors, or windows. Experts also advise that you get rid of weeds and other dead organic debris near your home as these attract bugs.

# 5 Find a reliable pest control

If you discover bug infestation too late or if they still keep returning despite you having exhausted all measures possible, the fastest and most effective solution is to call Phoenix, AZ pest control companies like Invader Pest Management. These specialists are equipped with the latest tools to locate and rid your home of bugs. Most importantly, the procedures they use are environmentally safe to guarantee your home’s safety.
