GET ready for summer by redesigning your porch while deterring pests like wasps.
TikTok user @DesignBroker shared an easy way to stop wasps from building nests in your home.
In the video, she says that painting the porch ceiling a shade of haint blue will deter wasps from nesting.
The wasps get confused and think the blue is the sky, so they choose another place to settle.
Popular shades of Haint Blue are made by Sherwin-Williams, Olympic, and Benjamin Moore.
If you want to make sure you can enjoy your nights outdoors, there’s an easy way to stop bugs from swarming around lights.
Home expert Rosalynn Daniels posted a video showing how to easily keep bugs away from outdoor lights.
In a quick switch, Daniels changed her outdoor lighting from white bulbs to amber bulbs.
The expert said that with the yellow lightbulbs there was “not a single flying bug in sight”.
“I promise it’s a game changer!” said Daniels.
Doorways and outdoor dining areas are two of the most important places to change the light since people spend a lot of time in these places.
According to The Spruce, the yellow lightbulbs can be used anywhere a regular lightbulb can be used.
Beautify the lawn by reseeding for the summer.
Overseeding, also known as overseeding, repairs damaged areas and makes your lawn as green as you want it to be.
To win at overseeding, you need to do it when temperatures are mild but rainy — spring is the perfect time for it.
Greensleeves Managing Director David Truby spoke to Express about how you can ensure your lawn is always perfect while removing weeds.
Reseeding not only repairs visible damage, but also increases your lawn’s resistance to disease and reduces moss growth.
