Types Of Pests That Are More Prevalent During Summer


Summer is the perfect season for some pests, such as:



These pesky insects are the ultimate buzzkill for any outdoor gathering. They’re annoying and can carry harmful diseases like West Nile and Zika.



Ants are known to invade homes in search of food and water. During the summer, they can infiltrate your home more easily as they’re more active and their colonies are larger.



Flies are attracted to rotting food and garbage. They can quickly multiply and become a problem if not dealt with promptly.



These creepy crawlers can survive in almost any condition and are known to carry diseases. They can infiltrate homes through small cracks and crevices, making them hard to spot until too late.



Ticks are common during summer and can carry Lyme disease and other serious illnesses. They can latch onto humans and pets, making it crucial to check for them regularly.


5 Techniques To Pest-Proof Your Home During The Summer 


Seal Up Entry Points

Pests can enter your home through small openings like cracks, gaps around doors and windows, or wall holes. Seal these entry points with caulk or weatherstripping.


Keep Your Home Clean

Pests are attracted to food sources, so a good pest control technique can be to regularly sweep and vacuum floors, wipe down countertops, and take out the trash regularly.


Eliminate Standing Water

Mosquitoes and other pests thrive in standing water. Eliminate standing water around your home, such as in bird baths or flower pots.


Trim Trees And Shrubs

Trees and shrubs that touch your home can act as a bridge for pests to enter. Trim them regularly to prevent pests from getting too close to your home.


Consider Pest Control Services

Looking for a professional pest control company can help prevent pests from getting into your home by taking preventative measures and treating any existing infestations.
