We sure do love summer! The warm weather, the green grass, the brightly colored flowers, the backyard gatherings…there’s so much to enjoy. But summer also means a wave of warm weather pests making their seasonal presence known. Stinging insects, mosquitoes, ticks, carpenter ants, bats, groundhogs and so many more. So what can you do to help reduce the pest population around your home this summer?
- Be proactive. Think about what attracts and harbors these pests. Standing water (kiddie pools, bird baths, rain barrels) attracts egg laying mosquitoes. Food attracts wasps, ants, flies, etc. Tall grass harbors ticks and snakes. Eliminate these pest-friendly conditions to reduce the pest population.
- Be vigilant. Watch for signs of a pest issue and when you see it, take action. A small pest problem can turn into a big pest problem in a short amount of time. Call your local pest control company to come out to evaluate the issue and recommend a treatment plan.
- Be thorough. We recommend our Complete Attention Plan as the premium solution to pest control and maintenance for your home. We provide preventative insect and rodent control services at the exterior of your home every other month. With CAP, you are covered 365 days a year.
