Natural Pest Control for Your Alexandria Rental Property

Keeping Your Alexandria Rental Property Pest FreeWhen pests intrude a rental property, they can give rise to a lot of messes. No lessee or renter likes to occupy a home heavily penetrated with creepy crawlies, including the health and sanitation considerations they can bring. Granting that pest control is, as usual, the charge of the renters, keeping your single-family rental homes free of common pests should be a crucial part of your constant maintenance program, and one you should give assistance to your renters with conducting.

On that account, spraying unsafe chemicals in and around a home is not invariably the most excellent option. Residents with pets and children may have qualms about pesticides harming those people close to them, and residents with certain health conditions may be unsafe, too. Therefore then, natural remedies for pest control is for you. Some professional exterminators make known to use natural products, and those are worth consulting a bit more and perhaps leaving a list of preferred providers to your residents. Anyhow there are also things you and your residents can do to keep your Alexandria rental homes pest-free in natural, safe ways.

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

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

If fruit flies in the kitchen are pestering you, try using apple cider vinegar to eradicate them completely. Simply pour a small quantity of apple cider vinegar in a small bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and poke a few small holes in the top. They’ll be closely drawn to the vinegar, but then will get blocked under the plastic. No more fruit flies!

To annihilate other kinds of flies, try planting a pot of sweet basil and keeping it side by side 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 most typical pests and can be hard to destroy. Try pouring cornmeal in little piles where you’ve sighted ants, inside and out. The ants will eat the cornmeal, but can’t digest it, and will afterward die out. Another attainable and beneficial approach is 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 great in keeping mice at bay.
