How to Keep Bugs off of Your House

As the snow melts and the weather begins to warm up, more and more people start to spend time outside. Unfortunately, this also means that bugs and insects also start to move around as they come out from their winter hiding spots. Often times this leads to bugs and insects searching for food or water, which they can find inside your home! Fear not! There is a way to keep bugs off of your house, and we will tell you exactly how to do just that.

How to Keep Bugs off Of your House

The simplest and most effective way to keep bugs off of your house is to treat the exterior of your home. This is a process that requires the application of chemicals on and around your home. But don’t worry, these chemicals are safe for pets and humans alike! If you watch the video below, you will see just how quick and easy an exterior spray treatment is.

Timing is Everything

Most people don’t think about bugs until it’s too late. That means they are already seeing spiders, flys, earwigs, lady beetles, and other bugs on their house. While this isn’t necessarily a big deal, it is always nicer to prevent the problem.

Many pest control companies start spraying homes in April and May. They are correct in that it will keep bugs off of your house right away, but the problem is that in April and May, it is typically very rainy here in Wisconsin. If the chemical is applied during the rain or it rains with 24 hours of application, the chemicals are diluted and become ineffective.

We at Erdye’s Pest Control, wait for the weather to cooperate. This at times forces us to delay and reschedule an appointment, but we would rather reschedule and make sure the job is done right in the first place.

But there are some drawbacks to using this product as well. For more information, check out the video below.
