Natural Pest Control for Your Cary Rental Property

Keeping Your Cary Rental Property Pest FreeWhen pests raid a rental property, they can cause many problems. No one,  absolutely none, enjoys a home full of creepy crawlies, plus the health and sanitation difficulties they can bring. Despite the fact that pest control is commonly the duty of the renters, keeping your single-family rental homes free of common pests should be an essential part of your normal maintenance program, and one you should help your renters deal with.

With that said, spraying toxic chemicals in and around a home is not at all times the ideal option. Residents with pets and children may fear about pesticides harming their family members, and residents with certain health conditions may be at stake, too. In that case, then natural remedies for pest control is for you. Some professional exterminators assert to use natural products, and those are worth inquiring a bit more of and perhaps supplying a list of preferred providers to your residents. Yet there are also things you and your residents can do to keep your Cary rental homes pest-free in natural, safe ways.

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

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

If fruit flies in the kitchen are bothering you, try using apple cider vinegar to eradicate them. Simply pour a small 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 enticed to the vinegar, but then will get enclosed under the plastic. No more fruit flies!

To get rid of other kinds of flies, try planting a pot of sweet basil and keeping it adjacent 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 ordinary pests and can be hard to exterminate. Try pouring cornmeal in little piles where you’re discovering ants, inside and out. The ants will eat the cornmeal, but can’t digest it, and will soon die out. Another budget-friendly and the essential solution 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 beneficial in keeping mice at bay.
