You may not know that May is National BBQ Month, but you probably know why: Memorial Day is coming up on May 28th. If you’re like the millions of Americans planning a backyard bbq for this holiday, you’re probably wondering how best to make yourself and your guests comfortable in the heat and the humidity. That’s why Progressive Pest Control created this Backyard BBQ Prep Checklist.
- Mow the Grass. You wouldn’t have friends over without cleaning the bathroom, would you? Tidy up your backyard before you expect people to spend hours in it.
- Zap Pests. The only thing being eaten should be burgers. Your guests don’t want to be a feast for mosquitos and ticks and neither do you! Contact Progressive Pest Control to discuss your pest control needs and let’s discuss a plan to protect your yard, your friends, and your food.
- Keep Kids Happy. Set up a kid-safe zone with a kiddie pool, some fun lawn games, their own music, and maybe an older sibling to keep an eye on them. Consider offering the older sibling some monetary compensation so parents can relax.
Keep Food Safe. With all that raw chicken and beef everywhere, make sure you pay attention to food temperatures and safe handling instructions.
A pest-free backyard will not only make your Memorial Day BBQ that much better. Think how much more you and your family will enjoy the coming summer months without any itching and scratching, or worrying about ticks! Don’t delay; call Progressive today.
