There are several common pests that can infiltrate your yard, breed, and take over. And despite how common they are, these pests are difficult to deal with on your own. They can be incredibly resilient and spread rapidly once they’ve settled in. But what are these pests, and what exactly makes them so tough to deal with? Below, we’ll highlight some of the most common threats to the outdoor spaces surrounding Smithtown, NY area homes and how our pest control solutions effectively fight them.
Common Local Pests
Let’s take a closer look at some of the most common types of pests that can appear in your yard and where they typically hide:
Mosquitoes are some of the most harmful and invasive pests that can make their way into your home’s outdoor spaces. Due to their ability to breed extremely quickly and transmit dangerous diseases, keeping their numbers under control is essential. Because ticks prefer to lay their eggs near sources of standing water, they can often be found hiding near puddles, ponds, fountains, birdbaths, and other water sources.
Ticks are generally carried into your yard by small animals, and they’re also capable of carrying and transmitting a wide range of dangerous diseases. Ticks can be found in places where they’re likely to run into a food source, like in tall grass, dense foliage, and in collections of underbrush.
While fleas are commonly thought of as a pet problem, they’re completely capable of attacking humans. These pests prefer to hang out in moist, cool, shady areas, including in trees and shrubs. And while getting your pets on flea prevention programs can help protect them, effective pest control and eliminating potential hiding places are essential for keeping fleas from attacking you and the other people in your household in Smithtown.
