As all Georgia residents know, summers in the South can be brutal. In July especially, homeowners have to deal with lots of bugs and pests when they just want to enjoy being outside. The mosquitoes here are infamous and can be an incredible nuisance, not to mention detrimental to your health. Fleas and ticks can also be a huge problem to your family or pets, and they get worse over the summer. Scorpions and snakes are a few pests that you may possibly have to worry about over the summer.
Here is our advice on how to make sure that you are as prepared as possible when it comes to pests this summer:
Fleas and Ticks
Fleas and ticks are a huge pain that can be spread very easily, especially if you have pets. Both fleas and ticks can spread harmful diseases and need to be dealt with carefully. It is very difficult to get rid of fleas once they have invested your home. If an infestation occurs, you will need to treat all of your pets with flea prevention medication, wash and vacuum your entire house, and you may need to release a flea bomb depending on how bad the fleas have infested. Ticks can spread diseases like Lyme disease and Tick Fever, and if you find a tick on you or another person, it needs to be removed very carefully. Pest control professionals will be able to make sure that all fleas and ticks have been removed from your home, and will help prevent future infestations from occurring.
Not only are mosquitoes annoying creatures that can bite and cause irritating itching that will make you miserable, but they can also spread harmful diseases like the West Nile Virus, dengue, and malaria. You will want to rid your outdoor area of mosquitoes so that you can enjoy events outdoors, such as pool parties or summer BBQs, without worrying about these annoying creatures. There are a few measures you can take such as spraying yourself with mosquito repellant or lighting citronella candles. However, the best way to insure that you take care of the mosquitoes is to contact us at Any Pest, Inc so we can spray mosquito treatment.
Snakes and Scorpions
These creatures can be dangerous and poisonous and need to be dealt with immediately. While the majority of species of snakes in Georgia are non-venomous snakes and the majority of species of scorpions are not harmful to humans, these creatures can still be an issue.
