Summer is definitely here in the Rockwall area and Pest Control doesn’t take a break in the summer. The summer months bring their own challenges when it comes to bugs and insects.
Summer is a time to be outdoors, wheather your by the pool, next to the grill or just enjoying the outdoors, we have a few tips to help keep insects out of your outdoor experience.
Hopefully you have your yard and home treated regularly by a pest control professional. But, if you don’t and you are experiencing bug or insect problems, give us a call.
1. Avoid scented soaps, perfumes, scented lotions and hair spray. These heavily scented items attract insects.
2. Avoid the combination of sunscreen and insect repelant. While sunscreen should be reapplied, insect repelant should not.
3. Use insect repelant with DEET. These are more effective and can be used on children. However, do not use these produts on infants or babies under two months of age. A product containing 10% DEET will keep insects off for up to thirty minutes.
4. Stay away from stagnant water. Rockwall and the surrounding area probably doesn’t have too much stagnant water since we see very little rain in the summer months. However, we do have a lake and several ponds that can be havens for insects to live and breed.
