Sunshine and warm temps mean getting to be outside and enjoying the great outdoors! A summer adventure wouldn’t be half the fun without bringing our pets along for the journey. While we all love bringing back fun memories from adventures, oftentimes we bring back more than that – we bring back pests! This summer, Clark Exterminating wants you to enjoy the great outdoors with your pets while avoiding bringing pests home with you. To keep those pests outdoors where they belong, follow these steps all summer long.
Be sure to check your yard for pests such as fire ants, ticks, mosquitos, and any other creepy crawlies. Pests like to hide in dark, damp areas so be sure to clean out your gutters, mow the lawn, and rid areas of debris. If you have a birdbath or fountain, adding a drip can ensure that it does not become stagnant and invite mosquitos. This also helps to prevent rodents, who carry these pesky pests, from visiting your home.
Ensuring your home is pest-free on the outside is important, but so is protecting your home on the inside! Be sure to bathe your furry friends, as well as wash their bedding, toys, and collars to ensure these pests aren’t infesting you and your home. Make sure that your window screens do not have holes in them and if they do, be sure to repair them to keep those bugs out. Do what you can and let the professionals do the rest. Clark offers treatment plans for your home to keep your home pest-free year-round.
