2. Birdfeeders aren’t that safe
You should also pay attention to the placement of birdfeeders and birdbaths. People sometimes place them close to their windows in order to watch the birds easily and maybe to take pictures of them. Unfortunately, you’ll also be creating a leeway for insects to come into your house.
Birdfeeders should be placed not nearer than 10 meters from your house. Make sure there is no food spoilage there, because that can attract bugs from all over the surrounding area. Also avoid placing birdfeeders on the branches of garden fruit trees. It may be harmful for a tree to bear all those pests.
3. Stagnant water – a great place for insects
During the warmer seasons of the year, it’s not recommended to leave water stagnant for more than 3-4 days. Numerous life species can start breeding there, including mosquitoes, flies and even roaches.
Pay attention also to dog bowls, baths and buckets outside your house, and even puddles on your yard. They can be a major factor for attracting pests. It’s easy to prevent such kind of breeding for these insects. Just dump everything after gardening and keep an eye on places where water can possibly lie stagnant.
