Your lawn is one of the easiest places where pest invade, infest and build their nests. Before pests make their way into your home in search of food and shelter, they completely damage the lawn area. No matter how small or large your lawn is, pests come in all types and sizes to infest your outdoor living space. If you fail to take necessary pest control steps, you, your family members and pets will be suffering a lot. Here are some of the best practices that help you keep your lawns pest-free.
Prune Shrubs & Trees:
One of the best and the easiest ways to make your lawn pest-free is to prune trees and shrubs. As the branches can serve as a passage for pests to get inside your property, you should get the long-grown branches pruned to save your lawn from infestation, and prevent pests from entering and damaging your home.
Dispose Garbage Properly:
Once you have pruned those trees and shrubs in your lawn, you must remove the trash quickly to avoid attracting termites and other wood-loving pests. Litters, clutters and garbage should be disposed of regularly and properly to prevent the entry of these unwanted creatures.
Remove Stagnating Water:
Pests not only need food, but also rely on water to survive. If your lawn has water puddle, you will find several pests such as cockroaches, ants, mosquitoes and flies partying there. So, remove any standing water sources immediately to make your lawn pest-free at all times.
Plant Pest-Repelling Herbs:
Plants like basil, citronella, mint, peppermint, lavender, rosemary and petunias are known to repel pests successfully. If you have them in your lawn, you can save your outdoor living area from the devastating pests.
