What Does a Mild Winter Mean?

Winter just didn’t really happen in the Midwest this year; it sort of skipped over us. So what does this mean? Most notably, it means more in the way of allergies and bugs. If you take some easy actions now, you can avoid the sneezing and possible insect infestation this spring.

In an earlier blog I share information about quercitin, probiotics and omega-3 fatty acids for  helping your body to react positively to spring’s blooms. If you have a crock pot, make your own probiotic-friendly yogurt with this easy recipe!

The National Pest Management Association shares some great tips for preparing your home in case of an influx of pests:

  • Maintain a one-inch gap between soil and wood portions of a building.
  • Keep mulch at least 15 inches from the foundation.
  • Seal cracks and small openings along the bottom of the house.
  • Eliminate sources of moisture or standing water.
  • Keep tree branches and other plants trimmed back from the house.
  • Keep indoor and outdoor trash containers clean and sealed.
  • Screen windows and doors.
