Are you looking for advice on how to control summer pests? Warm summer months also bring all kinds of pests with them, as many insects take advantage of the weather to multiply quickly and even establish new nests and colonies.
Summer is just about here, which means random beach trips, family picnics in the park, or weekend brunch. Summer is synonymous with carefree, warm, and fun days. However, the hot climate also brings some things that are not exactly invited - pests. When summer is in full swing, you will find that the number of unwanted pests suddenly increases.
Pests like spiders and mosquitoes, which usually hibernate in winter, appear in spring and then multiply quite aggressively.
Here we are sharing some summer pest control tips to experience a peaceful environment:-
Tip # 1 - Mosquito
Who doesn't hate mosquitos? They are just a pain that always hums and bites you in the worst of times, causing reactions and bumps on your skin. But don't blame them! Mosquitoes simply try to survive and seek food and companions to continue the mosquito life cycle.
You should start seeing the first signs of mosquitos by June, but prevention needs to be done sooner or your skin could be filled with itchy bumps and an increased mosquito population in your area.
The best thing you can do to keep mosquitoes from flying around your home is to remove any stagnant water areas that attract them. Mosquito eggs can only develop in puddles that are not moving. If you still can't control more persistent infestation and mosquito activity, you can try using mosquito traps or citronella candles and scents. These can work, but usually, only reduce activity in the area and don't eliminate it entirely. Our Pest Control technicians can help you get information about which products are working and which are not.
Tip # 2 - Ants
At one point or another in your life, you may have to deal with an ant infestation or activity. Ant infestations are generally harmful to health but tend to be irritating to most homeowners. Ants usually appear between May and July, depending on the temperature. If you don't take action the first time you find a colony, it can easily spread and take over your entire home, causing stress and potential harm to you and your property.
To keep ants out of your home this summer, you need to make sure that all food is properly stored and sealed. Cleaning up leftovers and crumbs after eating, as well as taking out the trash frequently, are also things to keep in mind. If you spot one, try to follow it to see where its nest is and take appropriate action. For best results, contact your local pest control company for help with ant control.
Tip # 3 - Houseflies
Houseflies are generally attracted to sugary beverages and foods like alcohol, sodas, sugar, candy, meat, and many more. So, if you accidentally spill a drink or food, you need to clean it up ASAP to prevent it from occurring and becoming a problem. One of the problems that houseflies have with homeowners and commercial buildings is that they can reproduce very quickly. Within a few days, you can have hundreds and sometimes thousands of flies in your home, which can be extremely difficult to get rid of.
Despite what most of the online pest control items and "DIY" product labels say, it's nearly impossible to keep flies 100% off your home in the summer. The most important thing is to make sure your home is cleaned and get rid of all potential sources of food like trash cans, pet droppings, stagnant water, and more. Removing the trash and recycling it frequently is usually the most important step in proactively managing fly infestations. Wiping down the counters with disinfectant and removing leftover food will greatly reduce the chances of house flies in your home. The few that do show up can easily be treated with a fly swatter or flytrap. Our Urbanwale pest control service can help remove and remediate any fly control treatment in residential and commercial areas.
Tip # 4 - Spiders
Let's face it; your summer garden is one of the most important areas in your home that you and your family can enjoy. The summer months between June and September are the ideal times for Spider Control. Simply removing the webs will not remove any spider populations inside or outside your home. Urbanwale Pest Control delivers Spider Control with secure, efficient, and portfolio-friendly services for residential and business customers.
The most effective way to control arachnids is to be proactive early in the summer season before the infestation spreads on a larger scale. If you can control the lower level of a house early in the year, controlling a spider population is much easier and keeps spider activity low. Spiders are a good outdoor pest for the most part as they are themselves a pest control solution for flies, ants, beetles, and other common insects. No company can completely eliminate all spiders (and you don't want to), but we can keep the infestation under control so you and your family can enjoy the outdoors of your home without fear!
Tip # 5 - Wasps and bees
Wasps are primarily carnivores and eat a lot of insects. The most important thing is to make sure there is no nearby source of food to feed a growing colony. It is very important that you have an allergy or are not sure if you are reacting to a string. You are looking for support from a reputable local pest control provider for Wasp Control. A large number of nests cannot be treated with the wasp killer "DIY", which you can buy from Home Depot.
Don’t worry, we DO NOT kill honey bees - we move them. Many pest control companies don't know the difference between bees and wasps. Both are good for the environment, but wasps are MUCH more aggressive and can pose a threat to you, your customers, and your family.
