As the summer season approaches, we can hardly contain our excitement about getting out and enjoying the beautiful lawns we work so hard year-round to achieve. Our landscapes look beautiful, flowers are in bloom, our hardtop gazebo is inviting, and late sunsets beg us to spend a few more hours outside. But it’s hard to enjoy those outdoor spaces when mosquitoes, flies, and gnats are buzzing around. That’s where Acenitec’s Party Spray service comes into play. We’ll come out 24 to 48 hours before your outdoor event and spray a pet-safe insecticide to help control flies and mosquitos.

This summer, take any excuse for a celebration and spend time outdoors with the ones you love, whether that’s in the garden or on some Balkonmöbel (or balcony furniture). Our exclusive Party Spray services make enjoying those Oklahoma summer nights even more enjoyable. Here are 10 ways you can enjoy good company in the great outdoors (virtually pest-free) this summer:

1. Pool party

The only thing flying around your pool should be pool toys and cannonball splashes, not. Real Simple has great tips on throwing the perfect summer pool party.

2. Graduation party

Take the pomp and circumstance outside and celebrate your grad with family and friends.

3. Outdoor wedding

A small, backyard affair can be an intimate and relaxed way to celebrate a marriage. Although, no one wants to be swatting insects away whilst trying to enjoy the ceremony. It’s fair to say that the couple won’t want anything to ruin their big day. The bride definitely won’t want anything landing on (or ruining) her dress, especially if it’s from somewhere like Winnie Couture Wedding Dresses in Houston. Be sure to spray your outdoor area before the wedding events take place, in order to try and prevent any bugs spoiling the wedding. Backyard weddings can be a lovely idea for the summer though, for some inspiration from Oklahoma backyard weddings, see the Brides of Oklahoma idea board.

4. Garden party

Dust off your patio furniture, your adirondack chair, and show off those beautiful blooms. Fun hors d’oeuvres add the perfect touch.

5. Cinco de Mayo celebration

Serve up some of your favorite Mexican-inspired dishes, turn on some mariachi music, and fiesta!

6. Family outdoor game night

Gather your siblings, grandparents, aunts and uncles – everyone will feel like a kid again with these fun outdoor games.

7. Memorial Day barbecue

Fire up the grill and honor those who’ve fought for our country with a Memorial Day backyard get-together.

8. July 4th fireworks bash

Whether you’re a pyromaniac or prefer to watch from afar, celebrate our freedom with your fellow Americans with the perfect Independence Day bash.

9. Olympics party

The Summer Olympics are back this year and what better way to celebrate than a backyard party with a mini-Olympic competition?

10. Movie night under the stars

Turn a sheet into a projector screen, use hay bales as seating, and pop some popcorn for the ultimate backyard movie night. Get more movie night inspiration here.

For long-term outdoor pest solutions, a more comprehensive pest control treatment plan is recommended, but for one-time events, our Party Sprays are the perfect no-commitment short-term solution to keep pests at bay.

No more smelly bug spray or constant swatting: before you host your next event, give Acenitec a call. One of our friendly, helpful staff members will prep your yard so that you and your guests can enjoy the outdoors comfortably.
