Get Rid of Problematic Pests: Bees, Bed Bugs, and Termites

beesAs we get closer and closer to the warmer months, although that means nicer weather, more outside activities, and overall better moods, there are still serious issues that come with these months. Bugs, pests, unwanted insects, whatever you want to call them, can cause serious problems to your family this summer. Here are a few bugs to look out for and what you should do about them.

Bees

No one wants a swarm of bees buzzing around their property and you’ll certainly not want them flying around inside the confines of your home. If you notice a bee inside your home, it’s time to act. Here’s what to do.

Remove any uncovered trashcans and throw out any old food
These stinging pests will swarm if there is any trace of food. This includes ditching left over food if it’s not properly sealed or stored away.

Contact a professional pest control service
When it comes to bees, it’s important to remember to not be a hero. Get rid of anything that attracts them and call a professional to get help.

Bed Bugs

During their life cycle, female bed bugs can actually lay more than 200 eggs. That means only having a few of these bugs inside your home can turn into an overwhelming infestation if you don’t act quickly. Here are a few ways to prevent bed bugs from occupying your home.

Thoroughly vacuum your entire home
If you notice any sign of bed bugs in your home, the first thing you should do is vacuum every room, every foot, and every inch of your entire home. Don’t just throw out the vacuum bag, either, because those bugs will crawl right out of your trash and infest your home all over again.

Contact a professional pest control service
The only way to fully ensure that your home is bed bug free is to hire a professional pest control company. You’ll drive yourself crazy if you keep finding these bugs even after you’ve cleaned your entire house. Don’t stress more than you have to and get professional help.

Termites

Termites are one of the most damaging pests in the world. They swarm in high numbers and can cause significant damage to your home. You’re going to have to act quickly to ensure you protect your home from these invasive bugs. Here are a few things you can do to prevent termite damage in your home.

Keep all wood away from your home
Termites often feed on mulch and wooden structures near homes before they make their assault on the actual house. Pay attention to the wood on your property and don’t let these bugs into your home.

Contact a professional pest control service
As soon as you notice any signs of termites inside your home, contact the pros right away.

Although you have to do a few things to protect your home, the only constant that ensures bug prevention is working with professional pest control services. Whether it’s bees, termites, or bed bugs, contact Essential Pest Control for professional assistance.
