Summer’s Pests Should I Look Out For?

Summer’s Pests Should I Look Out For?

In summer, you can enjoy the outdoors and catch some rays. But along with the warm weather comes a host of pests that can wreak havoc on your home This summer, keep a watch out for the following pests:


Mosquito season is here, and mosquitoes are one of the most annoying insects. They can carry diseases like malaria and dengue fever. While you’re trying to enjoy the outdoors, they’re sucking your blood and making it impossible for you to relax. If you have a mosquito issue, you can do a few things to help keep them away from your home. First, all standing water is drained from pools, rain gutters, and birdbaths. You should also invest in bug repellent to spray around your yard or patio area.

Fleas and Ticks

Fleas and ticks are other common pests in warmer weather as they thrive in warmer temperatures. They both bite humans and animals alike, so humans will likely be too if any of your pets are getting bitten by fleas or ticks. If you think that fleas or ticks are causing problems at your house, call an exterminator right away!


Cockroaches will continue to become more prevalent as the weather warms up. They can spread bacteria, salmonella, and other contaminants through their waste and saliva. Cockroaches also leave behind droppings that can cause allergies or asthma in children who play on floors where these bugs have been seen. If you notice cockroaches in your house or office, call an exterminator.

Bees and Wasps

It’s important to remember that bees and wasps aren’t dangerous unless provoked or threatened – they only sting when they feel threatened by something (often people). This means that they’ll leave you alone if you leave them alone. Don’t freak out if you happen to have an unwanted bee or wasp in your home! Bees can be removed with a simple vacuum cleaner if necessary. Simply pour boiling water over them for wasps – this will kill them instantly without harming anyone else!


Ants are one of those pests that we have to deal with year-round, but it’s the summer months when we see their numbers increase. Hot days and warm nights mean that ants are more active, which can cause many problems for homeowners. Ants can be annoying pests because they get into everything. They seem to be everywhere in your house and are always looking for food and water. Ants will eat just about anything, but sweet things are usually their favorite choice.
