Summer Pest Control: Protecting Your Landscape from Common Invaders

Tips For Property Pest Control

Summer is the time when you want to enjoy a beautiful landscape in your backyard, but it can be difficult to relax when pests have invaded your outdoor space. Whether you’re dealing with pesky flies or annoying mosquitoes, it’s important to take pest control seriously if you want to enjoy your outdoor living environment. 

From the Ambrosio Landscape Solutions team, here are some tips and strategies to protect your landscape from common invaders this summer:

1. Remove Standing Water

Mosquitoes and other pests need a water source to breed, so it’s essential to eliminate standing water from your property. Dump out any items that hold water, such as kiddie pools or empty planters, and clear out gutters regularly.

2. Use Natural Pest Control Measures

Rather than using harsh chemicals to kill pests, opt for natural methods that are safer for your family and pets. Consider companion planting, which involves growing plants that repel pests like marigolds and peppermint. You can also make your own natural pest sprays using ingredients like garlic, vinegar, and neem oil.

3. Secure Your Trash Cans

Pests like raccoons and rodents are attracted to your garbage, so make sure your trash cans have tight-fitting lids and don’t overflow. If you have fruit trees, pick up any fruit that falls to the ground as soon as possible.

4. Keep a Tidy Yard

Pests love to hide in cluttered areas, so keep your yard clean and tidy. Trim back overgrown bushes and trees, and make sure your grass is mowed regularly. Don’t let piles of leaves or debris accumulate in your yard, as these can provide a haven for pests.

5. Bring in The Professionals

If you’re dealing with a serious infestation, it’s time to call in the pros. A pest control company can diagnose the problem and come up with a treatment plan that’s safe and effective. They can also provide ongoing pest control solutions to keep your landscape pest-free.
