When pests break into a rental property, they can bring about several complications. No occupant prefers to stay in a home saturated with creepy crawlies, not only that, we have to consider the health and sanitation disorders they can bring. Granted that pest control is oftentimes the sole load of the renters, keeping your single-family rental homes free of common pests should be a main part of your scheduled maintenance program and one you should lend a hand to your renters with adopting it in their daily practice.
Consequently, spraying nasty chemicals in and around a home is not on all occasions the primary option. Residents with pets and children may have apprehensions about pesticides harming their companions in the house, and residents with certain health conditions may be vulnerable, too. For this reason, then natural remedies for pest control is for you. Some professional exterminators tell us to use natural products, and those are worth questing a bit more and perhaps preparing a list of preferred providers to your residents. With that said there are also things you and your residents can do to keep your Dunnellon rental homes pest-free in natural, safe ways.
One natural style to control access points for insects in every nook of the house is to use coffee grounds. Some household pests don’t like the smell, and so sprinkling your used coffee grounds in spaces where you think the bugs are coming in might be just as effective as a spray.
In the patio and yard, if you notice aphids eating your landscaping, try burying a banana peel next to the affected plant. The peel will enrich the soil while keeping your patio and yard bug-free.
If fruit flies in the kitchen are an irritation, try using apple cider vinegar to fully eliminate them. Simply pour drops of apple cider vinegar in a small bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and poke a few small holes in the top. They’ll be approaching to the vinegar, but then will get baited under the plastic. No more fruit flies!
To destroy other kinds of flies, try planting a pot of sweet basil and keeping it very close to your door. Rosemary and sage are two more herbs that help keep mosquitoes away, a little anti-pest herb garden in the making.
Ants are another most usual pests and can be hard to annihilate. Try pouring cornmeal in little piles where you’ve noticed ants, inside and out. The ants will eat the cornmeal, but can’t digest it, and will at long last die out. Another reasonably-priced and usable way is to mix dish soap with water in a spray bottle and spray the ants as well as where they come in. Others include peppermint oil or leaves which is also very helpful in keeping mice at bay.
