Battle of the bugs – Summer pest prevention tips

With summer well underway, your must-do list includes a lot of time outside…family barbeques, fun in the sun and paddling pools. While you’re enjoying the good weather outside, a number of pests including ants, wasps and bed bugs will be trying their best to get inside your cool and shaded home. We’ve pulled together a couple top tips to help keep those pesky pests outside!

**A fairly obvious but important tip is to keep kitchen counters clean and never leave food out; this is a big no-no when it comes to deterring pests. Toss or seal it but don’t leave it on counters or tables.

**Remove the garbage regularly and store it in a bin that seals tightly, otherwise you might be unknowingly nourishing pests.

**Seal cracks around exterior doors and windows with caulk, and replace damaged weather stripping to help keep crawling insects at bay.

**Divert rainwater away from the house & eliminate areas of standing water. Irritating pests are attracted to damp areas.

Our simple list will help eliminate pests in and around your home this summer.
