Summer in Florida is a beautiful time of year, but it’s also when many pests are most active. From ants to mosquitoes, these unwanted guests can become a real nuisance. Here’s a comprehensive guide to protecting your home from summer pests in Florida. 

  1. Seal Entry Points

Pests can enter your home through the smallest cracks and gaps. Regularly inspect your home for potential entry points and seal them. Pay special attention to areas around doors, windows, and where utilities enter your home. 

  1. Maintain Your Yard

A well-maintained yard can help deter pests. Keep your grass mowed, trim overgrown bushes, and remove any standing water to eliminate potential breeding grounds for mosquitoes. 

  1. Store Food Properly

Pests are often attracted to homes in search of food. Store food in airtight containers, clean up spills immediately, and keep your kitchen and dining areas clean. 

  1. Regular Pest Control Treatments

Regular pest control treatments can help keep pests at bay. Consider hiring a professional pest control service for regular treatments, especially during the summer when pests are most active. 

  1. Keep Your Home Dry

Many pests are attracted to moisture. Fix any leaks promptly, use dehumidifiers in damp areas, and ensure your home has good ventilation to keep it dry and less attractive to pests.
