It's hard to believe students are already headed back to college for the fall semester. And, with plenty already for parents and students to worry about as they begin a fresh academic year, we want to help ensure unwanted pests and bugs aren't part of that worrying frenzy.
Whether you've already moved in, or are about to, you'll need to remember these important tips to keep your dorm or apartment free of pests, and always ready for "studying." From bed bugs to bats and fuzzy critters with four legs, our back-to-college pest control infographic has you covered for the best ways to keep bugs and other pests out of your college livingspace.
As we can see in the infographic, most unwanted pests are a result of our own actions, or inaction, to be proactive and ensure we do our part to keep them out and keep our living space clean and unwelcoming to them. Keep bed bugs away with proper searching techniques and smart tips, while also being sure to clean up after yourself (and probably those messy roommates, too), keeping clutter to a minumum, smart and safe storage practices for food, and of course, letting mom know that you've been doing great and keeping the place tidy.
