Enjoy a Bug-Free Summer
Summer is the best time for bonfires, barbeques, and enjoying time in your yard. Perfect weather days invite you outside to soak in the sun, but the perfect day can quickly turn sour if annoying bugs drive you back inside.
Insects such as mosquitoes, flies, gnats, fleas, ticks, and chiggers can make us miserable. Their bites and stings are annoying and frustrating, and the disease transmission and allergies that can happen as a result are concerning. Add creepy and annoying bugs like the American (wood) roach and other large bugs that buzz around our heads and make us run inside to escape them, and a summer BBQ can quickly turn miserable.
Successful control of these bugs requires proper identification, proactive planning, knowledge of pest biology, and expertise in pest control options: both what to use and when to apply it. In addition, knowledge of personal protection measures, such as wearing long pants and sleeves and using insect repellents, helps to keep our outside time enjoyable.
Bug Control in the Summer Months
At Tri-County Pest Control, our pest control plans are formulated to make your outdoor space enjoyable and bug-free. Depending upon your needs, we offer tailored maintenance plans or single visit services that keep your yard bug free all summer long. Our summer maintenance plan focuses on stinging and crawling insects that can quickly turn a party into misery.
Have a special event planned? We can come in days before the event to treat the area to make sure your guests will be comfortable and focused on the event.
In addition to treating your yard, we also make sure to treat your foundation, siding, window and door frames, and eaves to prevent pest entry into your home.
Pet Protection in the Summer Months
Mosquitos and ticks don’t just annoy people, they transfer deadly diseases to our pets. Mosquitos transmit heartworm to dogs, which cause a slow and miserable death. Treatment is costly and very painful for the pet, but heartworm is completely avoidable. Heartworm preventatives such as Heartguard, Interceptor, and Sentinal should be given to your dog each month to keep them safe.
Tick bites bring the risk of Lyme disease. Again, prevention is key. Protect your pet with products like Frontline, Bravecto, and Nexgard which kill the tick when it bites your pet. Ask your veterinarian to help you choose the best products for your pets.
