Ants are a social insect that lives in colonies. Ant control treatment plans should include killing the entire colony. Just spraying an ant with a typical ant spray, particularly a repellent spray, will only kill a few at best and scatter the colony. Unfortunately, you can’t get rid of ants permanently. You will continue to battle them as they creature from surrounding properties. But the good news is that you can start early in spring have Mosquito Hunters treat your whole yard.
Spiders can indicate the presence of other pests on which they prey. Spiders are often considered a beneficial pest because they prey on other insects. Spiders are easy to differentiate from other pests because they have eight legs. While all spiders use venom to kill their prey, three in North America are dangerous to humans: Black Widow Spiders, Brown Recluse Spiders, and European House Spiders.
If you are noticing a flying insect around your home that resembles a mosquito, it may instead be a Midge. There are many species of midges, some a minor nuisance, while others can be more harmful. They are known by many names including punkies, sand flies, and no see ums. Among the worst Midges are biting Midges. Biting Midges pierce into the skin of humans to suck blood that can cause irritation and allergic reactions. Biting Midges thrive during the Spring and Summertime and can be a particularly large problem if you live near large bodies of water like near lakes, rivers, and beaches. If you have a large infestation of these pests on your property, you must take action to stop the invasion.
Crane fly adults can vary in color, but most are tan, brown, or gray in color. Due to their size and shape, many people may confuse them with mosquitoes, thinking they have some sort of giant mosquito present.
Crane Flies live outdoors and are frequently seen on the sides of homes with their legs spread out wide.
These insects are not major home infesting pests. Often, homeowners confuse them with mosquitoes. These insects are not harmful as they cannot bite people.
Stink bugs begin to emerge in spring and early summer. Several kinds of stink bugs exist naturally in the U.S. but a new species arrived recently, the Brown Marmorated Stink Bug (BMSB)and has become a problem for homeowners. The adults emerge in spring and feed on plants, causing damage and spreading diseases to fruit, vegetable and other plants. Offspring produced during the summer often seek shelter as temperatures drop in the fall, causing severe infestations in homes and businesses.
