Protect Your Home and Yard from Pests

Ahhh, springtime. The flowers are blooming, the birds are chirping and the bugs are showing up everywhere! Protect your home from unwanted insects with products from Yeagers Hardware. Watch here to see Lucas, explain some of the products and proper treatments available at Yeagers.

First, protect the perimeter of your home with a treatment like Spectracide Bug Stop Home Barrier. It’s a multispectrum treatment that you put around doors and windows to treat spiders, ants, roaches, fleas, ticks and more.

Next up, treat your yard for pests. You can start with granules that you spread with a handheld or walk-behind spreader. Granules treat pests both above and below the ground. Some insects like sodworms and grubs can really damage your lawn if you don’t get them under control. The granules also help control fleas and ticks so your pets aren’t bringing them inside.

Another problem you might be faced with as the seasons change are bed bugs. If you find bedbugs, the best place to start is with the bed bug kit. The kit contains everything you need to treat not just your linens but all the fabrics in your home including your carpets, couches and more. The bed bugs and their eggs will get into all of your fabrics and upholstery if they’re not treated. Make sure you’ve conquered bed bugs by putting out bed bug traps. Put them under the corners of mattresses, under cushions and anywhere else you might have noticed the bed bugs. If they remain clear, the treatment has worked but if you notice bed bugs trapped in the adhesive it’s probably a good idea to treat for them again.

If you’re having a problem with pests this spring, come by Yeagers. We have a variety of products to help you no matter what your problem might be.
