Summertime Pests Can Really Annoy Homeowners

Wednesday, July 27, 2011

The guest list at many outdoor summer events in Michigan, Ohio and all across the United States typically includes many friendly faces, but often time’s visitors that are not welcome drop by as well.  Just like us, mosquitoes, ants and a variety of stinging insects, including yellow jackets and wasps, enjoy the tasty treats at barbeques, birthday parties and family reunions.  If you are worried about summertime pests ruining your next get together, Rose Pest Solutions has a few helpful tips that can help you reduce the likelihood of insect party crashers.  

To Get Rid Of Summertime Pests

  • Keep food stored in durable, air-tight containers or indoors until ready to serve

  • Clean spills and crumbs immediately from countertops, floors and picnic tables

  • Take trash out daily and keep it tightly sealed in outdoor containers

  • Fix any leaky pipes and faucets, both indoors and out

  • Get rid of any areas of standing, stagnant water from your yard

  • Mow your lawn regularly

  • Keep branches and shrubs trimmed back away from your home
