Outdoor Living and Outdoor Pests
With much of the usual activities shut down and as many families shelter in place, the need for outdoor living has never been greater. With outdoor living comes outdoor pests – flies, wasps, ants, birds, spiders, ticks, fleas, wild animals, biting flies, and more. Many are coming to your family dinners, BBQs, swimming pools, or to annoy you while you lie by the pool and read your book.
Ongoing Pest Control Services
It is impossible to control all of these pests because most fly from one spot to another. As soon as you light up the grill, the wasps and flies arrive. If you eat outdoors, the fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes may make a meal out of you. Biting flies are not so much interested in what you eat, just that you are there. The female biting fly needs warm blood to complete her reproductive cycle. So, anytime you are outside, they are waiting.
One of the more significant problems that homeowners face is that these pests may not emerge at the same time. For that reason, we offer ongoing pest control services that keep your yard enjoyable.
Mosquitoes are nearly a year-round issue. Houseflies are seasonal as are wasps and biting flies. It seems that as one pest subsides, another rears up to take its place. It is for that reason that seasonal and ongoing pest control remains an essential part of controlling potential pests before they become a full-blown infestation.
Hard-to Control Pests
Some pests are hard to control because they are transient. Wasps are a good example. If their nest is not in your yard, destroying the colony is difficult. As soon as you prepare food, wasps show up to eat. That transient nature makes it impossible to eradicate wasps from the yard. However, we can still control their population through ongoing methods that reduce the number of overall wasps in a given area. That approach also works for other transient pests, such as mosquitoes and flies.
Controlling pests occurs in two ways. There is the emergency approach where we come out when your kitchen fills up with ants, mice, or cockroaches. That one-time service call helps get the pests out of your house. The second way we work is through our ongoing pest control services – A monthly service call. We use that time to put in place tools and products that control emerging pests before they become bothersome. That means that outdoor living gets a whole lot easier and more enjoyable. You are dealing with fewer pests rather than full-blown infestations.
