One of the best parts about the colder times of year is when the mosquitoes and other pests finally seem to leave the yard for a time. Of course, sometimes these bugs are simply looking to locate themselves somewhere a little warmer, and sometimes, that place is your home.
You don’t want those pesky bugs to leave your yard only to come pester you inside your house, so think about some of these methods that you can get mosquitoes and other bugs to “buzz off” and leave you alone this winter.
The first thing you will want to consider is any potential entryways into your home that bugs can use. Keep an eye on screens on windows and doors, and take note of any tearing you might find on them. If a screen is torn, this could be a great way for bugs to silently make their way inside.
You should also consider what is going on outside, and make sure no bugs are moving indoors from an outdoor hotspot. For example, areas with standing water near your home might make a place where bugs can gather. Make sure you eliminate potential bug hotspots outside so they aren’t tempted to move from there and into your home.
Some bugs hate certain smells. Take advantage of this and keep an oil diffuser burning in your home that smells of citronella, lemongrass, or other scents that mosquitoes and other pests hate. This should be a great way to drive any bugs that are already inside back out of your home, too.
Nobody enjoys mosquitoes and other pests making their way inside and making life difficult for them. To deal with this issue quickly, take advantage of some of these tips or give your local mosquito control company in Lake Charles a call so they can help you deal with your bug problem before it begins. This way, you can finally enjoy a bug-free New Years.
