Ants, roaches, spiders, and flies: as the weather gets cooler, these pesky critters may try to make their way into your home, so it’s important to plan ahead. Start checking around your house to make it less easy for them.
First, ditch the bags and bag sealing clips and store food in sealed storage containers. That goes for pet food as well. In general, don’t keep food out for long periods of time.
Keep firewood away from the house because that attracts bugs, leaves, mulch, or wet soil, too. For common fall lawn stuff, keep it cleaned up and away from the house—also the garage. Don’t store trash in there. Those are common hiding places for critters.
Despite your best efforts, sometimes you do find bugs in your house. Our favorite way to get rid of them, especially if you have kids and pets, is Zevo. Zevo sprays effectively kill bugs. They're safe to use around people and pets when used as directed, which is so key.
Zevo sprays, with bio-selective technology, use active essential oils like lemongrass and geraniol. These ingredients target and shut down biological pathways found in bugs, not people or pets. Just spray the bugs, wipe ‘em up, and you’re good to go.
What’s so cool is that different sprays can handle different bugs — from those like ants and roaches that crawl, to stingers, like wasps and hornets.
Zevo also has flying insect traps that you plug right into your outlets. They work around the clock to attract and capture bugs that you may not have even known were there. And they have replaceable cartridges, so you never have to touch dead bugs.
You can keep them all around the house, like near the fruit bowl where fruit flies gather – to the garage where we can catch them before they get any further inside. Bugs are super resilient and smart – they’ve been around for more than 300 million years. They actively try to make your home their home. But Zevo, with bio-selective technology, is way smarter than bugs!
Zevo sprays are available at Walmart, Target, and Home Depot stores nationwide. Get more info and order Zevo traps online at zevoinsect.com.
