Most Common Summer Pests
Summers are a time for the sun, some fun and unfortunately, some pestering insects at your home. These insects may be tiny but they can disrupt your normal life and also expose you to some serious health issues. To prevent these insects from ruining your summer, you need to know about them and more importantly, you need to know how to get rid of them.
Let’s take a look at some of the common summer pests, the threat they cause to your health and your home and what measures should you take to get rid of them –
- Cockroaches – Cockroaches are pests that can infest your home around the year but they become a much bigger problem in summers when they attack your home to escape the extreme temperatures outside. Thanks to their high rate of reproduction, they would take over your home within a few days. Cockroaches contaminate your food quite easily and they might be responsible for spreading diseases.
How to Prevent Them – If you want to stop cockroaches from entering your home, you need to keep your home as clean as possible. Remove leftover food or other scraps of food that might attract them. Cockroaches make their home in clutters as that keeps them cool during summers. So, you should clear out any such clutters.
- Mosquitoes – Mosquitoes are quite possibly the pests which cause the biggest nuisance in summer. Their bites leave you covered in itchy bumps and rashes. On top of that, their relentless buzzing is enough to irritate you. Now, mosquitoes can also cause a lot of diseases and most of them are pretty serious. The population of mosquitoes normally peaks during the hottest months of the year.
How to Prevent Them – Mosquitoes breed and grow in standing pools of water. So, you need to make sure that you don’t have any standing water at your home. Even a little bit is enough for mosquitoes to grow. For the adult ones, you can use some repellent sprays and creams that keep them away from you.
- House Flies – House Flies are also quite dangerous as they spread a host of diseases. Flies are normally attracted to decaying food and some other stuff like sweetened soda or flowers. Flies come in all shapes and sizes and it is nearly impossible to stop them from entering your home.
How to Prevent Them – To prevent flies from entering your home, you need to keep your home clean. Throw away any rotten foodstuff and clean areas like your kitchen, dining table and fridge with a disinfectant. You can clear out the rest using squatters or repellent sprays.
