The time has come when our least favorite summer visitors are making their appearances. We’re talking about summer pests like ants, mosquitoes and stinging insects that are now showing up on properties in Boulder and Denver, Colorado. Not only are pests a major nuisance but some pose more serious threats when they decide to make our property their new home. Now is a great time to take the extra steps to prevent all the warm weather pests that could be trying to bombard your summer fun. Our Colorado pest control team at EnviroPest by Sprague Pest Solutions would like to share a few pest proofing tips for the warm weather pests.
Seal off any cracks, crevices, or holes along the foundation, windows or doors of the home.
Apply screens to utility openings, vents, chimneys or other large openings that pests can use to access the home.
Replace window screens if they are torn.
Try to keep crumbs, spills and other food debris cleaned up so that there is not an open food source for pests.
Store any open food in airtight containers.
Trim back tree branches so they do not touch the side of the home providing easy access for pests.
Eliminate any sources of standing water from the property to deter mosquito breeding.
In addition to these pest proofing tips we strongly recommend signing up for home pest control service that will protect your home from pests this summer and throughout the entire year. Our HomeSmart Pest Prevention Program is ideal for Colorado homeowners for protection of ants, stinging insects and many other common household pests.
