There is absolutely nothing more annoying at an outdoor event than an abundance of insects that think they were invited to the party. So, what does one do to prevent this? How do you get rid of the bugs?
Pest control for your outdoor event is challenging but manageable. You can do it yourself (DIY) or contact your local pest control company Bugs By Brian® for our Special Event treatment.
Choose your outside location for your event wisely. Make sure the shrubs and area are trimmed out nicely. Make sure there is no standing water that absolutely attracts mosquitoes. Have the grass mowed to its lowest capability. If you are event is in a public area, make sure crumbs, trash etc. are removed. These items attract those unwanted bugs to your event.
Other ways to protect your event from bugs is have a tent with screens, treat the area before the event, keep lighting (which attracts bugs) away from your guests. Make sure you have citronella candles and/or Tiki torches lit and have insect repellant handy for guests. Another great way is to slow burn coffee grounds, mosquitoes truly hate the smell.
Use trash cans with lids and place away from the party area. And cover food with lids or the screen food party tents you can find at most stores. Bugs do not like wind, so think about having fans blowing in your event area.
Finally plant mosquito and bug repellant plants. Check with your local gardening store to find out what works in your area. Some ideas would be mosquito plants, thyme, peppermint, spearmint, marigolds and rosemary.
