The Top 3 Summer Pest Control Problems

fire antsPest control is important all year long, but Georgia’s sweltering summer heat and humidity make it a necessity. Bugs of all kinds are out in force and are more likely to invade both your indoor and outdoor living spaces. Read on to learn about the top 3 summer pest control problems, and be sure to schedule your treatment with Protect All Pest Control to keep your house and lawn pest-free!

Roaches

Roaches really only need warmth, moisture, and shelter to survive, which unfortunately makes our homes a welcoming environment for them. Even if you keep your home spotlessly clean, roaches can and will find their way in. Here in Georgia, we not only have to deal with the smaller German cockroaches, but also the American cockroach, or Palmetto bug as it is regionally known.

Your Protect All Pest Control technician will use IPM (Integrated Pest Management) techniques to remove the roach infestation, and can also give you some pointers on how to avoid future infestations.

Fire ants

Another scourge of the Georgia summertime is the dreaded fire ant, an aggressive ant that packs a painful sting. They are a particular cause of concern during the summer when children are out of school and often running around their yards barefoot. If you see the large, reddish-orange mounds that signify a fire ant colony, contact us ASAP to schedule a consultation.

Mosquitoes

Our Woodstock extermination company is happy to announce that we now offer mosquito control! Besides the annoying bites, mosquitoes pose a serious health risk. They can carry a variety of nasty diseases, from West Nile virus to malaria, and even a form of encephalitis. Don’t let the mosquitoes kick you out of your own backyard. Contact us for more information about our mosquito treatments, and fight mosquito breeding in your yard by eliminating any sources of standing water.
