Summer is a busy time for most of us, and for pests, it it is no exception. There is a very long list of summer pests that pester homes and businesses throughout the warmer days of summer. Here is our short list of pests that we deal with most often during the summer.
- Snakes – We receive a lot of calls about snakes. Most are for snakes that are not venomous. It is good to know that many snakes mimic venomous snakes. We recommend not approaching snakes as it is very difficult to tell the venomous ones from the mimics. Snakes like warm spots and are attracted to areas where there is a lot of food, especially rodents. If your home is prone to snake sightings, it might be time to consider pest control for rodents or another food source for snakes.
- Yellowjackets and Wasp – We receive a lot of calls about in-ground wasp nests. If you suspect that wasps have built a hive in your yard, do not approach it. Not only will you likely be stung, you will likely be stung a lot. Well-established wasp nests can hold over 10,000 wasps and you won’t know that until they all emerge. Instead, call our team. We have the tools and knowledge to remove wasp nests safely
- Birds – Roosting birds and aggressive birds are a big issue come summer. We receive many calls about dive-bombing birds that bother people and pets. We receive calls, mostly from businesses about roosting and nesting birds that are making a mess.
While we all love summer, we can love it more without all the pests. Learn more about summer pest control around Bryan and College Station by giving our team a call. We offer affordable rates with exceptional results.
