Summer Pest Prevention

Just like the scorpions, many pests love summer as many of them are less active in the winter. They enter your home seeking both food and water. Some of the pests you can expect to see in the summer are the following:

  • Cockroaches
  • Crickets
  • Bees
  • Wasps
  • Scorpions
  • Silverfish
  • Mosquitoes
  • Flies
  • Ants

Since these guys are on the move and searching for water and food, you will need to take a few precautions to prevent them from entering your home and minimize them outside of your home.


For the health and safety of your family, eliminate areas of standing water to avoid a mosquito infestation. Standing water is the best way to attract mosquitoes, which not only brings annoying bites, but the possibility of harmful diseases such as the West Nile virus, Zika virus, and many more that can cause lifelong health issues or even fatal.


Keeping your grass mowed aids in keeping bugs away. A well-maintained yard also keeps the snakes away and makes them more visible if they do happen to get into your yard. Snakes also like to hide in lawn debris and thick shrubs that are also home to their food source – mice and rodents.


Check for gaps in and around your doors and windows and repair any found to keep these summertime pests out of your home.
