The Blood Suckers Around Your House and Yard

As we Georgians inch ever closer to summer, we can already see the signs of the impending invasion of those pesky summertime insects. Just a few minutes outside on any warm, Georgia evening and you’re immediately swarmed by a small army of insects. Whether it’s the mosquitoes in the air or the fleas, ticks, and other insects in the grass, they’re not only pesky and annoying, but in some extreme cases, quite dangerous.

Blood-Sucking Bugs

On any given day, at any given time, just outside your door, there’s a whole host of blood-sucking bugs that seek to feed on humans and their pets. In relentless search of mammal hosts, these bugs’ bites are not only painful, but they can also carry and transmit dangerous diseases, viruses, bacteria, and parasites. The usual suspects tend to be mosquitoes, fleas, ticks, lice, chiggers, various flies, and bed bugs; and the diseases they carry tend to thrive and flourish in Georgia’s warm and humid summer months.

Prevent Proliferation

When it comes to these menacing insects, it’s good to know that the best way to defend yourself against them is to prevent them from becoming so plentiful in the first place. While tall socks, long pants, and long-sleeved shirts are great as an added precaution against all these insects, it’s best to be proactive in making sure your yard and its features don’t promote and foster insect growth and proliferation. For example, mosquitoes are attracted to stagnant water, so eliminating puddles and containers that hold water is a great start. For fleas and ticks, keep grass low, shrubs trimmed, and your yard free of debris such as clippings and leaves, as they can also hold moisture and protective cover. As pets can often bring fleas and ticks into the house, it’s also wise to have your pets on a proper flea prevention routine. When it comes to bed bugs, it’s a little different, as they usually travel by attaching themselves to the skin, hair, fur, clothes, and luggage. Once inside the house, bed bugs can hide in virtually anything such as bedding, furniture, cushions, pillows, or in gaps in walls, floors, and molding.

Confident and Comprehensive Pest Control

Of course, there are many different pests and insects lurking around your house; just as there are many different ways to prevent their proliferation in your yard. That’s why it’s a great idea to contact a professional to not only determine what insects are terrorizing your yard and home, but how best to eliminate the problem effectively. If you suspect a bed bug or flea problem, the highly trained experts at Wild Trappers will inspect and treat your home and surrounding areas, taking your precious pets and family into careful consideration.

Wild Trappers can also work to prevent mosquitoes from becoming a major problem by inspecting your yard and helping to eliminate spots where they can breed and thrive. While yard debris and unused containers are great places for stagnant water that mosquitoes are attracted to, most don’t even consider the stagnant wetness of a trapped gutter and downspout system. At Wild Trappers, we know that clogged gutters attract mosquitoes, so whether it’s a simple gutter cleaning or the installation of a guard to prevent gutter debris, we can help you with your mosquito problem.

We offer a comprehensive approach to pest and nuisance wildlife that goes beyond simple removal. We offer a full suite of related services that include prevention, clean-up, sanitation, and much more. For a FREE inspection by a knowledgeable pest professional, contact
