Natural Pest Control for Your Palmetto Rental Property

Keeping Your Palmetto Rental Property Pest FreeWhen pests strike a rental property, they can bring about lots of issues. Not a single occupant enjoys dwelling in a home jam packed with creepy crawlies, as well as the health and sanitation inconveniences they can bring. While pest control is, in general, the commitment of the renters, keeping your single-family rental homes free of common pests should be a significant part of your continuous maintenance program, and one you should make easy for your renters.

Concurrently, spraying pernicious chemicals in and around a home is not, every time, the exceptional option. Residents with pets and children may be stressed out about pesticides harming their family and friends, and residents with certain health conditions may be unprotected, too. Thereby then, natural remedies for pest control is for you. Some professional exterminators confirm to use natural products, and those are worth surveying a bit more and perhaps imparting a list of preferred providers to your residents. Anyway, there are also things you and your residents can do to keep your Palmetto rental homes pest-free in natural, safe ways.

One natural system to control access points for insects in the vicinity of the house is to use coffee grounds. Countless household pests don’t like the smell, and so sprinkling your used coffee grounds in rooms where you think the bugs are coming in might be just as effective as a spray.

In the terrace and yard, if you chance upon aphids eating your landscaping, try burying a banana peel next to the affected plant. The peel will enrich the soil while keeping your terrace and yard bug-free.

If fruit flies in the kitchen are annoying you, try using apple cider vinegar to expel them. Simply pour a decent amount of apple cider vinegar in a small bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and poke a few small holes in the top. They’ll be going toward to the vinegar, but then will get cornered under the plastic. No more fruit flies!

To eradicate other kinds of flies, try planting a pot of sweet basil and keeping it closest 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 very ordinary pests and can be hard to eradicate. Try pouring cornmeal in little piles where you’ve discovered ants, inside and out. The ants will eat the cornmeal, but can’t digest it, and will inevitably die out. Another worth-the-money and practical help are 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 workable in keeping mice at bay.
