You Are an Unsuspecting Insect Grower!
Insects multiply like crazy in stagnant water. The more of this type of water you have outside the house, the more insects you will be growing!
Therefore, get rid of water that is stagnating in
- the tray under an outdoor plant
- the watering can
- all containers that collect water (garbage pail, plastic container). Collecting rain water to water your plants is great, but when the rain stops, put an air-tight cover on the container.
- a tire with a little water in the rim (a warm, moist environment, ideal for insect emergence).
Change your pet’s outdoor bowl of water every day.
Let’s stop growing insects. Nature is already doing a fine job!
