Nobody wants to put time and effort into their home only to have it be overrun by insects and other pests. While it’s always inevitable that one or two bugs might sneak into your home, it is indeed possible to make your home as free of pests as possible. Here are some smart ways to banish insects and pests from your home.
Get Mosquitos Out Of Your Pools and Ponds
Having a lovely reflecting pool or pond on your property is a great way to beautify your landscape. However, these water elements can unfortunately attract mosquitos. Instead of just learning to live with mosquitos, try mosquito water tablets. They will kill mosquitos are the larval stage, preventing them from maturing into fully grown insects. Considering the fact that many new illnesses are transported via mosquitos, this tip is more important and valuable than ever.
Keep Spiders Out The Healthy Way
There’s lots of debate as to whether or not people should try to keep spiders out of their homes. On the one hand, spiders eat those nasty aforementioned mosquitos. On the other hand, they can be unsightly and many people have phobias. If you want to keep spiders out of your home without having to use a lot of toxic chemicals, try heating peppermint oil in an electric scented oil diffuser. Spiders are naturally repelled by peppermint, making this a good way to naturally prevent them from entering your home.
Prevent Raccoons From Raiding Your Trash
Many of us have put our garbage out in the evenings only to wake up and see our refuse torn apart and scattered thanks to raccoons on the hunt for a late night snack. You don’t have to start dragging your trash bins indoors to keep raccoons from tearing them apart. Instead, spritz your trash cans with ammonia to keep raccoons at bay. When raccoons smell ammonia they confuse it for urine, leading them to believe that another animal has already marked its territory on your trash bins.
Pests and insects don’t have to ruin your quality of life. If you follow these tips, you can keep your home and property relatively pest-free.
