Natural Pest Control for Your Prince Frederick Rental Property

Keeping Your Prince Frederick Rental Property Pest FreeA lot of trouble can come up when pests invade a rental property. People don’t like a house infested with creepy crawlies, not to mention the problems concerning health and sanitation that could arise. Although pest control is usually the duty of the renters, keeping your single-family rental homes free of common pests should be a vital part of your regular maintenance routine, and you should assist your renters with handling it.

At the same time, spraying dangerous chemicals in and around a home is not always the best course of action. Residents with pets and children might be concerned about pesticides affecting their loved ones. Residents with specific health conditions can be in danger, too. If this is the situation, then natural remedies for pest control are for you. A couple of expert exterminators claim to use natural products worth discovering more about. Perhaps make a list of preferred providers for your residents. But, there is some natural and safe way for you and your residents to keep your Prince Frederick rental homes pest-free too.

One natural way is to use coffee grounds to control the insects’ access points around the home. Many household pests dislike the smell, so sprinkling your used coffee grounds in places where you think the bugs are entering through might be just as successful as a spray.

In the yard, if you find aphids eating your landscaping, try burying a banana peel beside the affected plant. The peel will enrich the soil while also helping your yard stay bug-free.

Combatting fruit flies in the kitchen can be effectively done with apple cider vinegar. Place some apple cider vinegar in a small bowl, cover it with plastic wrap, and puncture a few small holes on the top. The fragrance of the vinegar will attract the fruit flies, but the plastic wrap will trap them, providing an easy solution to eliminate these pests.

For a natural approach to repelling different types of flies, consider placing a pot of sweet basil near entrances. Additionally, herbs like rosemary and sage are known for their mosquito-repelling properties, making them excellent additions to a small anti-pest herb garden. With these natural remedies, you can create a fragrant and functional solution to keep various flying insects at bay.

Ants are another common pest that can be eliminated. Try pouring cornmeal in little piles where you’ve seen ants, inside and out. The ants will eat the cornmeal but can’t digest it, ultimately dying out. Another valuable and inexpensive remedy is combining dish soap with water in a spray bottle to spray the ants and where they come in. Other individuals also use peppermint oil or leaves, which helps keep mice away.
