What Everyone In Calverton Should Know About Mosquitoes

Mosquitoes have the ability to make your summer miserable, with the itchy bites that they leave behind. In order to better enjoy your time outdoors, here are a few things that everyone in Calverton should know about mosquitoes:

  • Mosquitoes have very specific needs. Not only do mosquitoes require human blood to reproduce, but they also need a safe location of stagnant water in order to lay their eggs. That’s why homeowners should look to minimize areas of stale water around their property. Places like birdbaths, kiddie pools, and your pets' water dishes should be checked regularly.

  • They spend a lot of time being active. Mosquitoes are most buzzy during the hours of dusk and dawn, which makes for a significant amount of time where people may also be outdoors.

  • There are smells they can’t stand. Plants like citronella, tea tree oil, peppermint, catnip, and lemon eucalyptus are all smells that mosquitoes tend to avoid.

  • Their season is long. While the peak of mosquito season takes place over the summer months, the entire season is quite long, ranging from April through October.

Preventing mosquitoes is hard. Nearly everything about human existence is attractive to them, which makes keeping them at bay a difficult task. For the most effective way to keep mosquito populations low on your property, contact Destroy Pest Control today. 

 

A Handy Guide To Keeping Ants Out Of Your Calverton Home

Because ants are such a common nuisance pest, Calverton homeowners will come into contact with an ant problem at one time or another. And while most species of ant don’t pose a health risk to humans or pets, they’re an unsightly, unwanted problem. Here are a few tips for keeping them out of your home:

  • Seal up your home. Due to their size, ants can easily slip through the smallest of openings. Thoroughly patch up any cracks or crevices in your home’s foundation, use weather stripping and door sweeps where necessary, and make sure that all window and door screens are without holes.

  • Store food and trash property. Ants will eat any human food crumbs they can find, whether they’re leftovers on the counter or scraps in the garbage. Always store food in sealed containers and opt for a trash bin with a secure lid.

  • Address areas of excess moisture. It’s not uncommon for ants to congregate around places like leaky faucets or sweating toilets, so addressing these problems is key.

  • Keep your home clean. Ants can easily mistake spilled shampoo or soap for a food source and will flock to them. Always clean spills thoroughly to remove the attraction.

Ants can be a pesky problem and preventing them may prove difficult. For protection from ants of all species, contact the professionals at Destroy Pest Control today.
