It’s hard to enjoy spending time in a yard infested with creeping, crawling, buzzing, biting pests. Even worse, it can be a threat to your health. Keeping pests at bay is essential for maintaining outdoor areas you can feel comfortable in, which is where we come in. However, there are some preventative measures you can take on your own. Below, we’ll highlight some of the most common types of pests, steps for preventing infestations, and how our professional pest control helps Fort Myers, FL, residents keep them at bay in the long run.
Pest Threats to Keep an Eye On
Several types of pests can invade your yard. Here’s a closer look at some of the most common in the Fort Myers area:
Along with being some of the most irritating pests out there, mosquitoes are also some of the most invasive. These pests can spread extremely quickly once they’ve established breeding grounds, which are generally located near sources of standing water. Puddles, water in blocked gutters, and other sources of standing water can quickly lead to mosquito infestations, which is why it’s important to address them whenever they appear.
Ticks are also common pests and can be some of the most dangerous to appear in your yard. Ticks can carry Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, and a handful of other diseases. Because ticks are generally brought onto your property by small animals, reducing the number of places on your property where they can hide is essential.
Fleas generally target animals, but they can also go after humans. The most common targets for fleas are pets, so treating your pets with anti-flea treatments can go a long way toward limiting your interaction with these pests.
