Natural Pest Control for Your Hewitt Rental Property

Keeping Your Hewitt Rental Property Pest FreeAll kinds of trouble can come up when pests get into a rental property. People don’t like a home filled with creepy crawlies, not to mention the problems related to health and sanitation they can produce. Although pest control is typically the renters’ concern, keeping your single-family rental homes free of common pests has to be an important component of your routine maintenance program and one you need to help your renters with handling.

With this in mind, spraying harmful chemicals in and around a home is not always the best route. Residents with children and pets might worry about pesticides affecting their loved ones, and residents with specific health concerns might be at risk too. If this is the case, then natural remedies for pest control is for you. A number of expert exterminators claim to use natural products, and those are worth knowing more about and maybe giving a list of preferred providers to your residents. However, there are also natural and safe things you and your residents can do to keep your Hewitt rental homes pest-free.

A natural way to manage points of access for insects around the home is to use coffee grounds. Sprinkling your used coffee grounds in spaces where you think the bugs are coming in can be just as effective as a spray as a lot of household pests don’t like the smell.

If you discover aphids consuming your yard’s landscaping, try burying a banana peel next to the affected plant. The peel will enhance the soil while keeping your yard bug-free.

If fruit flies in the kitchen are a nuisance, try making use of apple cider vinegar to get rid of them. Simply pour a bit of apple cider vinegar in a small bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and poke a couple of small holes in the top. The vinegar will draw them in, but they will be trapped under the plastic. No more fruit flies!

To prevent other types of flies, consider having a pot of sweet basil next to your door. Rosemary and sage are two other herbs that help repel mosquitos, a small anti-pest herb garden in the making.

Ants are another common pest that can be eliminated. Try pouring cornmeal in little piles where you’ve found ants, inside and out. The ants are going to eat the cornmeal but won’t be able to digest it and will eventually die out. Another low-cost effective remedy is to mix dish soap with water in a spray bottle and spray the ants and where they enter. Other people include peppermint oil or leaves, which is effective in keeping mice at bay too.
