Georgia’s been getting a lot of rain lately. That’s good for our water sources, but it can have an undesirable effect too: pests! Bugs emerge from underground during a rainstorm, and seek shelter anywhere they can find it–including your home. If you’re tired of being overrun with bugs every time the skies open up, check out some ways to prevent it.
First, look at your yard. Are there trees, bushes, and shrubs growing very close to your home? Trim them back so that bugs who live in them will find it more difficult to cross over to your house. If gardening is your passion, consider planting some herbs or flowers that deter bugs. Call Progressive Pest Control to set up an outdoor treatment–the fewer pests there are in your yard, the fewer will try to get into your home.
Seal up cracks, leaks, and windows, and don’t leave doors or windows open without a screen. Keeping your home clean and free of clutter will make it harder for bugs to find a place to live and things to eat. Encourage family members not to leave food or dirty dishes out, and keep an extra close eye on the areas where you store pet food and water. Don’t forget that PPC does interior treatments as well as exterior ones.
Don’t let bugs make you dread rainy days! Call Progressive Pest Control to schedule residential services and start enjoying your home and yard free of irritating pests, no matter what the weather is like.
