window screen cleaningWays to Keep Insects Away From Your Screen Doors and Windows

As soon as warm weather draws near, the insects usually emerge and want to get in. They are instantly attracted to window screens in Brunswick County NC once you open your windows, looking to go near the light that you may have turned on inside your house.

Here are some ideas to keep the pesky insects off the window screens.

Make use of an Insect Repellent

A good way to prevent bugs off your window screens, particularly during bug season, is just by spraying insect repellents. There are several natural insect sprays available in different stores these days that you could use on the exterior of the windows. These have smells that the insects just do not like, and that prevents them from going anywhere close to the Brunswick County window screen. You will sometimes have to spray the screens every day especially during bug season, like summer and spring, or once it becomes especially humid. Spraying in the evening may be much better in case you are finding it hard to deal with bugs that are drawn by your indoor lights.

Apply Citronella Oil On the Screens

In case the bug spray you are making use of is not that effective, you could try out an organic alternative such as citronella oil. Several pests detest its odor and that is why this option is effective when it comes to keep them away from your screens. You can place oil on a paper towel, then put it on the window. You can also add a few drops to a spray bottle, then use it on the window screens. Always be careful and avoid getting it on your hands, because it can be quite hard to wash off. There are also a number of citronella candles that carry out a similar function, which you could put on an outdoor furniture near the location of your windows.

Prevent Bugs From Returning

There are ways to help you deter these annoying bugs from coming around. A great way to get this done is by making sure that there are no open trash or food close to your home. This includes not leaving behind the food of your pet outside your home during the evening. You should also make sure that all garbage cans indoors and outdoors as well as recycle bins are all covered. It’s also best to keep no wood or cardboard near the home, because this lures pests such as carpenter ants and spiders. A few insects are attracted to your house mainly because of nearby bushes and trees, so make an effort to minimize those as well. Apart from these useful tips, be sure to clean your window screens because dirt attracts bugs. In case you have tried everything and you still failed, do not hesitate to call a pest control company for expert assistance.
