Turf Masters Pest Prevention has been the company so many have turned to help with their pest control and pest prevention issues, but rarely is it discussed what kind of tips they might have for what you can do on your own to keep pests away from your home. We at Turf Masters Pest Prevention are the experts, so for this month’s blog, we wanted to give you a few tips on just what can be done on your end to keep those awful pests at bay.
What can you do?
A huge problem in the metro Atlanta area is the mosquitoes. These pests are not just annoying, leaving itchy bites on you and your family members, but also able to spread disease. West Nile virus and Zika have both been in the news the past few years, and mosquitoes are the primary means by which both diseases are spread. The best way to keep mosquitoes away from your home is to get rid of standing water, like around drainage areas, puddles, toys, dog dishes and the like. While bug sprays and repellents can be good ways to keep mosquitoes away from your home, the very best and primary method for eliminating these pests is getting rid of any standing water inside or outside of your home.
But what about other creepy crawlies? A lot of the work can be accomplished just by keeping a clean home, inside and out. Eliminating things like brush and wood piles outside your home will keep pests like termites and some cockroaches away, and keeping the inside of your home clean can do just as much to keep those roaches at bay. Roaches tend to flock toward greasy surfaces, so keeping a clean kitchen, with a sink free of dirty dishes, is a great way to make sure those bugs stay outside your four walls.
