Bringing in the rain.. And the bugs
The rain is finally here and with the rain comes the bugs. Ever wonder why after a day of rain you see more worms, slugs, snails, ants, and other pests, it's because they are seeking higher ground. With the rain filling the places where they dwell they evacuate and do not return until the rain has stopped and their dwellings have dried. This is also why you may be seeing them in or around your home more as well. Insects see your home as the perfect spot to hold out till the rain has stopped. Watch out when you open that garage door, you may not be just pulling your car in for the night.
There are some things that you can do to keep them away.
- Trim back any plants or foliage that may be close to or touching your home.
- Seal any cracks or openings leading into your home.
- Clear out any heavy storage in your garage.
- Call a Pest Control Professional.
