How To Have A Bug-Free Backyard This Summer

Posted on July 8th, 2020 by Knockout Pest

Nothing should prevent you from enjoying your backyard this summer–not even a swarm of bugs! Luckily, there are certain things you can do to have a bug-free backyard this season. Keep reading to find out what they are. 

Use Bug Repellent Plants

Did you know that there are plants that naturally repel bugs? Now you do! Planting lemongrass, marigold, chrysanthemum, and lavender in your garden this season can help keep the bugs at bay.

Trim Your Landscaping

Tending to the landscaping not only makes your backyard look aesthetically pleasing; it also prevents bugs from congregating there. That being said, be sure to trim the landscaping on your property regularly. After all, bugs will be less inclined to make your shrubbery their new home.

Do Not Leave Food Out

Eating a meal outside can be very relaxing on a warm day. However, bugs will also want an invitation to this feast! Once you are done eating, be sure to bring the leftovers back inside with you so the bugs can’t devour them.

Have you encountered a swarm of insects in your backyard this summer? If you can relate, turn to the professionals at Knockout Pest Control for help. We can knockout bugs and keep them down for the count!
