Depending on what type of pest control treatment is used, it may wash away during rain or if it is sprayed with water. Though most outdoor pest chemicals are weather resistant to a certain degree, so they will not wash away.

Even though the chemicals are weather-resistant, water may dilute the potency of the chemicals, so it is important that you schedule any pest control services during a time when the weather is good.

If the solution is applied indoors or on outdoor walls that are protected from the elements, the pesticide can do its job.

Some pests will seek shelter indoors depending on the weather, as most insects and rodents do not like winter and the cold. So you will often see an influx of unwanted pests in your home during the winter or when the weather is wet and cold.

However, summer is the most active time for many insects as the warmer weather allows the pests to prosper and reproduce easier. Insects like mosquitoes enjoy the summer as they thrive in hot and humid weather.

You will always see pests during the year. They may be more during their peak seasons, but these seasons can vary pest to pest. Therefore it is important to have routine inspections and treatments.

A good home remedy for warding off bugs and insects is to use a 50/50 mixture of water and vinegar. Insects and even spiders do not like the smell and will actively avoid the area that you have sprayed. Using essential oils like lavender and citrus can also have the same effect.

Plants can also be used as effective home remedies for pest control, such as garlic, mint, and lemon balm are known to work. Also, mixing a 50/50 mix of baking soda and sugar works well as a trap for most insects and ants, as they want the sugar but will be trapped by the baking soda.

If you suspect or see that your pets have fleas, it is essential to control the outbreak immediately before they reproduce and the situation gets out of control. Below is a list of a few ways to control a flea infestation.

Bath your pets with an anti-flea shampoo and brush them with a flea comb to get rid of any fleas on your pet’s fur.

Limit your pet’s outdoor time as a way to limit the chances of them coming into the wildlife that may have fleas.

Clean and wash your pet’s sleeping spots or beds as a way to make sure there are no fleas there.
