Say Goodbye to Bugs: 6 Techie Ways for Keeping Them Out

6 Techie Ways for Keeping Them Out

Bugs are a common nuisance that can invade your home and outdoor living spaces, causing annoyance and sometimes even health problems. While traditional methods such as sealing entry points and using natural repellents can be effective, there are also several unique and techie ways to keep bugs out. In this blog post, we’ll explore six of these strategies.

Use Ultrasonic Pest Repellers

Ultrasonic pest repellers are devices that emit high-frequency sound waves that are designed to repel insects and other pests. These sound waves are not audible to humans or pets, but bugs find them irritating and will avoid areas where they are present.

Ultrasonic pest repellers are available in a variety of forms, including plug-in devices and portable options that can be placed around your home or outdoor living spaces. While there is some debate over the effectiveness of ultrasonic pest repellers, many users swear by them and find them to be a useful addition to their bug-fighting arsenal.

Install Bug Zappers

Bug zappers are another techie option for keeping bugs out of your outdoor living spaces. These devices work by attracting insects with a bright light, then electrocuting them with a high-voltage grid. While bug zappers are not as effective against mosquitoes as they are against other flying insects, they can still be a useful tool for reducing the overall bug population in your yard.

When choosing a bug zapper, make sure to select a product with a high enough voltage to effectively kill insects. Additionally, be aware that bug zappers can also attract beneficial insects such as bees and butterflies, so it’s important to use them sparingly and strategically.

Use Smart Home Technology

If you’re a fan of smart home technology, you may be surprised to learn that there are also options for keeping bugs out of your home. For example, some smart thermostats are equipped with temperature and humidity sensors that can help prevent mold growth, which is a common attractant for bugs.

Additionally, some smart home security systems are equipped with cameras that can detect and alert you to the presence of pests in and around your home. This can help you identify entry points and take action to seal them before bugs can invade.

Install Motion-Activated Sprinklers

If you’re dealing with a particularly pesky bug problem in your yard, consider installing motion-activated sprinklers. These devices use infrared sensors to detect the movement of animals and insects, then spray them with water to deter them from entering your yard.

While motion-activated sprinklers may seem like a drastic solution, they can be particularly effective against larger insects such as grasshoppers and beetles. Additionally, they can be a humane option for deterring pests without resorting to chemical insecticides.

Use LED Lights

If you’re looking for a more subtle way to keep bugs out of your outdoor living spaces, consider using LED lights. Unlike traditional incandescent bulbs, LED lights emit a type of light that is less attractive to insects. This means that by using LED lights in your outdoor lighting fixtures, you can reduce the number of bugs that are attracted to your yard.

In addition to being bug-resistant, LED lights are also energy-efficient and long-lasting, making them a smart choice for your outdoor lighting needs. Just make sure to choose a product with a warm color temperature, as cooler temperatures can attract more bugs.

Invest in a Robotic Vacuum

Finally, if you’re dealing with a bug problem indoors, consider investing in a robotic vacuum. These devices are equipped with sensors that detect the presence of insects and other debris, then automatically clean them up.

While robotic vacuums are not specifically designed for bug control, they can be a useful tool for keeping your home clean and tidy, which can help reduce the overall bug population.

Bugs can be a frustrating and even health-threatening problem, but there are several effective strategies for keeping them out of your home and outdoor living spaces. From traditional methods such as sealing entry points and using natural repellents to unique and techie solutions such as ultrasonic pest repellers and motion-activated sprinklers, there are many options to choose from. By using a combination of these strategies, you can say goodbye to bugs and enjoy a bug-free home and yard.

I have a subscription with Bug Bros and am always pleased with the technicians and the customer service. I detest insects so they're always willing to schedule a service when I call freaking out about what new horror (most recently, wild spiders) I've seen in my house. Lol Thank you for being so... thorough, Eric and Friends!read more

1st off, this month has been very stressful with losing a family member and the last thing I and my family needs is to worry about pests. Justin was phenomenal from start to finish and thorough! He took care of the bugs so we will have one less thing to worry about. In short, I can see why this... company is the best. If you need pest control call the BugBros they really treat you like they would a family member! He even took care of the pesky wasp nests and ants and checked for the dreaded termite (and blessed we dont have those). In short, thank you x a million!read more
