Pests You Can Expect This Summer
In our free guidebook, you'll find tons of tips and information about common summer pests on Cape Cod:
Mosquitoes and Ticks: It's no secret that we deal with mosquitoes and ticks almost year-round on Cape Cod, and it's even less surprising that our part of the country is a hotbed of mosquito and tick-borne diseases like EEE, West Nile Virus, and Lyme Disease, among others.
Ants: If you live here, chances are you've experienced an ant problem at least once in your life. Whether they're invading your kitchen or helping themselves to your backyard barbecue, ants are one of the most frustrating pests to deal with.
Bees: A bee's nest on your property can pose serious risks to you, your children, and your pets. There are certainly DIY methods of making your home less appealing to stinging insects, but when it comes to an active nest, it's always best to call the professionals. Attempting to self-treat can result in painful stings, allergic reactions, and even damage to your property.
Bed Bugs: Because these bloodsucking bugs do not fly or jump, bed bugs rely on hitchhiking inside luggage and on clothing to find their next host - so naturally, they tend to thrive during times that people are traveling. This is a good time to learn how not to bring bed bugs home as a vacation souvenir.
Mice: That's right, mice aren't just a winter pest. While you may see less mouse activity in the warmer months because they're perfectly happy outside without the threat of winter weather, you may still see them coming into your home to escape the summer heat and find a good meal.
