Unfortunately, as the weather heats up, outdoor bugs come out to play- mosquitos, ticks, and fruit flies- Oh my! Protect yourself and your family from bugs this summer without harmful chemicals with Weed Pro’s top five tips!

    1. Keep your lawn cut short- Summer bugs love to hide in tall grass and underbrush. By keeping your lawn cut short, you reduce the chance of bites from bugs like ticks.
    2. Dress for the occasion- When enjoying outdoor activities, like hiking, wear long sleeved shirts, long pants, and socks. Also, tuck your pants into your socks for extra protection.
    3. What smells good to you, smells good to them- During the summer, refrain from using too much perfume as fragrances draw insects.
    4. Keep the bugs out of your house- Keep the bugs where they belong and out of your home by making sure all of the screens in your windows and doors are in good repair. Also, try to stay inside during dusk and dawn when it is peak times for mosquito activity.
    5. Choose natural remedies- In the summer, getting bitten and stung is sometimes inevitable. Luckily, there are some great and natural home remedies from tea tree oil, baking soda, yellow onion, and vinegar. For more information on these home remedies, click here.
