Summer Pest-Proofing Tips

Posted on June 23rd, 2021 by Knockout Pest

The summer is finally here! No one wants to spend the summertime dealing with a pest infestation. Below are some summer pest-proofing tips to implement at home this season.

Eliminate Points Of Entry

If you don’t want pests entering your home, the first thing you should do is eliminate any points of entry. It is a good idea to inspect your home for any gaps and seal them up. That way, it will be a lot harder for pests to sneak their way into your humble abode. 

Get Rid of Standing Water

Mosquitoes thrive during the warmest months of the year. To keep mosquitoes at a distance, be sure to reduce areas of standing water on your property. Mosquitoes will be less inclined to call your house their new home if they do not have access to water. 

Store Food Properly

Eating dinner outside on a warm summer evening can be very enjoyable for you and your family. Once you are done eating, do not leave the food out on your patio table. Be sure to bring the food inside and store them in airtight containers so pests cannot eat your leftovers!

Have you noticed an uptick in pests on your property? If you know this all too well, let the professionals here at Knockout Pest Control handle the situation. We can knockout pests and keep them down for the count!
