Summer arrives and so do the annoying house flies in Topeka, Kansas City and throughout Kansas and the Midwest. Among the many summer pests that you may find, house flies are not a pest to take lightly. Sure, they are a common pest to find but this does not mean that you should allow flies to continue to buzz through your kitchen and other rooms of the home. The Topeka pest control pros at Schendel Pest Services are here to explain why.
Before we know it, mosquitoes will be making their presence known in Topeka, Kansas City and across the Midwest. Mosquitoes generally come out in the spring when there are sufficient breeding grounds, aka stagnant water. Not only are mosquitoes a serious threat because of the miserable bites they can leave on our skin but they are also of concern due to the fact that their bites are like tiny injections into the skin. West Nile virus is perhaps one of the most noted mosquito-transmitted illnesses and just one of the reasons why now is the time to prepare your backyard for the upcoming mosquito season.
Ants are very social insects, which is why they form massive colonies. The trouble comes when these ants decide to form their colonies on your property or worse, head indoors in search of food and water. Homes in Kansas City, Topeka and across Kansas are susceptible to ant infestations especially during the spring and summer when the temperatures are warm and homes are more open.
As a part of the NPMA’s National Pest Management Month, April 22-26 has been designated National Bed Bug Awareness Week. It is the perfect time of the year, before the busy spring and summer season, to learn some great tips to control bed bugs and prevent an infestation in your Kansas home or business. Bed bugs have been around for many years and as they continue to spread through homes and businesses, interfering with our everyday life, it is important to educate yourself on ways to avoid bed bug encounters.
