I think most of us who live in South Florida and Boynton Beach, in particular, can agree that it is a beautiful place to live. We boast a stunning tropical landscape and pristine white sandy beaches with a warm, calm ocean. But with all of that beauty also comes lots of dampness and humidity that can sometimes attract very unwanted insects. Pests like spiders, mosquitos, bees, wasps, roaches, and not to mention rodents like mice and rats will all be happy to stay at your place–if you let them. So, what can you do to keep these unwanted pests at bay all year round? Luckily, Ringdahl Pest Control is there to help with all of your pest and rodent concerns. But there are steps you can take immediately to help keep your lawn and interior pest and rodent-free.
Always check windows and door seals
Make sure your weather-stripping is tight around doors and windows and check your vents for any gaps. Keep garage doors closed and always keep lids tightly on the garbage cans if you keep them inside the garage or out. Be sure to call Ringdahl Pest Control to help with all your pest elimination needs.
Make sure to declutter
Clutter in an attic, garage, or even closets can be a sanctuary for unwelcome pests. Store unwanted materials in plastic bags to reduce dust and mold. Keep rooms vacuumed regularly and make sure to change the vacuum bags as they can become infested with pests if not changed often enough. Buy a dehumidifier to control moisture in the home.
Don’t leave standing water around
Make sure not to leave any standing water on or around your porch or deck. Make sure all plumbing leaks are taken care of quickly. Do not leave buckets of water or leaky hoses out because this will surely attract unwanted visitors.
Make sure to trim trees and hedges
Palm Trees, if not properly trimmed, can create huge problems leading to an infestation of pests and rodents. Keep your trees, and hedges cut adequately at all times. Insects can travel from Palm Trees into attics, and this can easily be avoided by keeping them trimmed back from your home. Also, do not leave any wood debris, scraps, and mulch too close to the home’s foundation.
Keep your home tidy
It seems like a no-brainer, but you’d be surprised at what these creepy crawlers can get into. Clean up pet food, and any pet spills immediately. Don’t leave fruits or vegetables lying around. To control fruit flies, wash fruit and put it directly into the refrigerator. Never leave dirty dishes in the sink.
