Many of our TriBridge Residential apartments feature lovely patios and porches. And with summer right around the corner, now is the perfect time to be out enjoying them!
To help you make the most of your patio, here are a few natural tips to keep it bug free:
- If there are bugs on your patio, get rid of the things that are attracting them. Making sure that there is no standing water, trash, or uncovered food on your porch should always be the step in fighting off bugs.
- Plant a bug repelling garden! Rosemary, catnip, and marigolds will all help repel mosquitoes and they will make your porch look and smell great.
- Keep ants away. If you’re trying to keep ants away, consider a natural and non-toxic repellent. Strangely enough, ants avoid cucumber slices and refuse to cross chalk lines.
