Summer is in full swing and that means plenty of outdoor parties, camping under the stars, and tons of exploring. Summer brings plenty of outdoor fun and activities for everyone. While humans love being outside in the summer, so do animals and insects. Some animals even try to make your cozy home their own by making their way into your house through cracks and crevices. When this happens, certain health issues can occur after one comes into contact with these pests, both in the wild or at home. In today’s blog, Amtech Personalized Pest Management, the best pest control company in Brookfield, will be going over some of the pests to watch out for this summer.
Much like apple pie, fireworks, or sunscreen, mosquitoes are a big part of summer. These pests are one of the very few known animals that actively prey on human beings, coming out in large numbers during the summer months. While some mosquitoes prefer animals over humans, there are quite a few of these flying insects that choose us humans as their main courses. Choosing to come out at night, mosquitoes are the real life vampires that horror movies warned us about, feeding on the blood of humans and most mammals all around the world. Mosquitoes are considered one of the world’s deadliest animals as they can carry diseases like Malaria, Zika, and Dengue Fever.
Bees and Wasps
More prominent flying insects that come out in droves during the summer months, bees and wasps are some of the most feared insects in the world. And rightly so in some instances, as bee venom can cause several health issues, which are highly magnified if you’re allergic. For the most part, bees and wasps won’t cause you any harm without a good reason, such as feeling as if they or their colony is in danger. Often times, stings can occur because you’re too close to the hive, which can be a big problem if these insects decide that your home looks like a good place to settle down. Because these insects are protected, you can’t just kill bees. Calling a licensed professional for expert bee control is your best bet when dealing with bees or wasps.
Rodents are the most abundant mammals on the planet, even outnumbering humans. They can be found on all continents except Antarctica and can be found in some variety in just about every country. Here in Brookfield and the surrounding areas, we mainly have to worry about mice and rats, both of which are constantly looking for shelter and food. Rodents themselves can carry many diseases, however their feces and urine can cause even more health issues if not cleaned up properly. Because their front teeth never stop growing, rodents like mice and rats have to constantly chew things in order to keep their teeth from getting too long, which could cause a lot of damage to your property.
Ticks, much like mosquitoes, feed on the blood of humans and other mammals. Ranging from the size of a head of a match, to right around the size of a dime, ticks come in several different varieties. All ticks can however pose a threat to humans in one way or another because many can carry dangerous diseases. The longer the tick is on you, the more likely you are to contract one of these diseases as well, so checking for ticks after being outside, especially in heavily wooded areas or tall grass, is a must for both humans and animals. Unlike bees or rodents, ticks usually prefer solitude. While most ticks aren’t very acrobatic and won’t be jumping from host to host like fleas, they can drop from great distances and can climb if needed.
