How to Protect Your Lewisville Home Against Summer Pests
June 19, 2019
Every year when summer rolls around, Lewisville homeowners are aware of the issues that spring up. Weeds grow, bushes become unkempt, air-conditioning systems must be maintained, and summer pests become active on our properties. With the humidity and warm weather, several pest species are ready to wreak havoc within your home or cause you annoyance in day-to-day life. Whether you’re facing the pest pressures of cockroaches, termites, mosquitoes, ants, or some other pest, they can become a major frustration for you and your family.
Most summer pests have a few things in common. Something that ants, cockroaches, termites, and mosquitoes have in common is that they all require quite a bit of moisture to survive. Additionally, summer pests become increasingly active as the temperatures become warmer, which means pest problems will continue to get worse as we move further into the season of summer. While most of these summer pests don’t cause much damage to Lewisville properties, termites are common summer invaders that have the potential to cost hundreds of dollars in damage in a relatively short period of time. And cockroaches and mosquitoes are known to carry many diseases, some of which are fatal to humans.
With these pest pressures in mind, it is always a good idea to implement steps to avoid interaction with summer pests in your home and around your property. Because many summer pests share similarities when it comes to why and how they invade, there are a few summer pest-prevention tips that are applicable across the board. Keep pests such as cockroaches, termites, ants, and mosquitoes away from your Lewisville property by following these exclusionary prevention tips.
Some pests, such as ants and cockroaches, are after the food they can find on your property. Avoid attracting these pests by cleaning food and drink spills as soon as possible.
Ensure your trash cans remain sealed to keep out foraging pests.
Clean your home and yard regularly.
Keep your grass trimmed, your trees cut back, and any thick weeds removed.
As previously mentioned, most summer pests thrive with some level of moisture. Avoid letting moisture build up on your property by clearing your gutters, overturning items that collect water, and removing any water-damaged parts of your property.
Seal off any areas that may be points of entry for pests, such as torn window screens, gaps in your foundation, cracks in your exterior walls, and open doorways.
