As the weather warms and the days lengthen, Bexhill residents naturally gravitate towards spending more time in their backyards. The

The allure of outdoor dining, family barbecues, and simply enjoying the garden in full bloom is irresistible. However, nothing can spoil outdoor fun faster than unwelcome pests. Here at Knockout Pest Control, we understand the importance of keeping your outdoor spaces pest-free so you can enjoy them to the fullest. Let’s delve into some effective pest control measures for Bexhill backyards.

Common Pests in Bexhill Backyards

Backyards in Bexhill can attract a variety of pests, each presenting unique challenges. Here are some of the most common pests and tips on how to manage them:


Ants can quickly become a nuisance, particularly around patios and outdoor dining areas. They are attracted to food and can form long trails into your home if not managed.

Control Measures:

– Prevention: Keep outdoor dining areas clean and free of crumbs.

– Barriers: Use ant deterrent sprays around entry points to your home.

– Baits: Place ant baits around the garden to reduce their population.


Wasps can be aggressive and their stings are painful. They are particularly troublesome in late summer when they scavenge for sugary foods.

Control Measures:

– Nests: Identify and remove nests early in the season.

– Traps: Set up wasp traps away from seating areas.

– Repellents: Use natural repellents like peppermint oil to deter wasps.


Mosquitoes are not only annoying but can also carry diseases. They breed in standing water, so managing their habitats is crucial.

Control Measures:

– Eliminate Standing Water: Remove any containers that collect water.

– Natural Predators: Introduce fish or other natural predators in ponds.

– Repellents: Use mosquito repellents and citronella candles to keep them at bay.


Rats and mice are not just indoor pests; they can also infest gardens, attracted by food scraps and shelter.

Control Measures:

– Seal Entry Points: Ensure there are no gaps or holes where rodents can enter your home.

– Traps: Use humane traps or bait stations around the garden.

– Cleanliness: Keep the garden free of food waste and clutter.
