Spring and summer mean more barbeques, which means a higher risk of getting bit by mosquitoes. These pests are out all day but are more prevalent at dawn and dusk. You can use sprays and citronella, but those are not a guarantee that you won't get bitten.  The best way to get rid of mosquitoes is to hire a professional mosquito control company, such as Clint Miller Exterminating, to eliminate these pests.

Let’s face it – mosquito bites are no fun. With the summer quickly approaching, mosquito season will be alive and well. A mosquito bite can make you miserable. These tiny creatures are seen as unassuming, but they carry diseases and parasites. Three pairs of thin legs, a pair of wings, two long antennae, and a mouth shaped like a beak can wreak havoc on your body. Being ready for mosquitoes' onslaught (because they are coming) can help prepare for infected mosquito bites.

Everyone looks forward to summer: barbecues, time out on the lake, hiking, fishing, and other outdoor activities. However, no one looks forward to the swarms of mosquitoes that cause itchy bites. Of the 150 species of this pest, over a third of them live in the Carolinas. Males won't bite you – unlike the females that need blood to help them lay their eggs, they only go after the nectar. When a female mosquito bites you, it injects saliva into the bite and that is what causes the itching. It also causes your blood to stop clotting so the mosquito can eat.

Just like we like to head indoors when the weather starts to turn, so too do rodents. Unfortunately, by the time you see the signs of an infestation, it means that you already have several pests running around after you've gone to bed. Pests don't just search for crumbs while they're sharing your house. They can spread disease, chew up electrical wires, and carry in even more pests (e.g., ticks, fleas, etc.). Plus, they can get into any part of your property. From the garage to the shed, they can go relatively unnoticed until they've proliferated into huge numbers. Rodent control starts with spotting the entry ways and working to block them. When you're searching for anything online that 'keeps rodents out of my home', we'll give you all the tips you need.

Before the cool weather hits and urges rodents to look for a warm, dry place to stay for the winter, block rodent access points. Part of rodent control is preventing them from finding ways into your home. The other part is using the proper rodent control products and services to eradicate the mice that do get in. Keep food in airtight containers and make sure you don’t have water leaks. Food and water attract these pests when it is getting ready to get cold. Also, once rodents get into your home, it’s difficult to get them out. If you noticed signs of rodents in your home and have not had luck trapping them, it’s time to call a professional like Clint Miller Exterminating.

With fall arriving right on schedule, may might find that some unwanted pests are starting to creep into your home. You could see more spiders and insects, because the cooler weather means they'll want to find a location they can be warm and comfortable in. If they can get inside your home, you could end up with a pest problem that you're not entirely sure how to solve. But there's more than just spiders, moths, and beetles to consider. This is also the right time of year for ladybugs to make their appearance, and start finding their way into homes and businesses where they can hide out for the winter.
