Minimize Summer Pest Problems

Written by Frank on . Posted in SWAT News

Memorial Day Weekend is nearly here and will kick off the start of Summer. But before you start your summer activities, now is a good time to take some simple precautions to minimize the summer pest problems that are sure to arrive!

Simple Steps to Minimize Bugs & Pests

Store Food Properly

Keep food in air-tight containers. This creates a very tough barrier for bugs and pests to conquer. Consider storing all food items in air tight containers. Cereal boxes are typically an easy source of food for bugs to attack.

Keep Moisture Out

It’s no secret that all living things need water to survive. But that doesn’t mean you have to make it readily available for them. Take a few minutes to inspect your home. Fix any leaks or drips that would make your home an inviting environment for ants, roaches and termites.

Block All Home Entry Points

Be sure to inspect your home on the outside as well. Bugs, pests and even small rodents can squeeze through the tiniest of holes. Inspect your cable lines, telephone lines, garage and especially the attic. Holes in these areas are often overlooked.

Use bug lighting to minimize summer pest problems.Use Bug Lighting in the Evenings

While not the most pleasing light in the world, yellow bug lights do help minimize bug activity in the evenings. Flying insects are really less likely to bother you around the hue of yellow bug lights.

Swat Services provides inspection and treatment for these home invaders that do more damaged annually to homes than wind, lightning and fire. (read more . . . )

“Chuck from Swat Services has been what my kids call "the bug guy" for 18 years! He is always full of life and enthusiasm. He knows me and my family and actually WANTS to know how we are doing. I love having my pest control handled by a friend and not just a random guy who changes each visit. Chuck is amazing and I hope he continues coming to our home.”
