Bugs got you down when you’re trying to get your summertime grilling on?
I don’t know about you, but for me, summertime means firing up that grill and getting busy with some serious bar-b-que action. No matter what is on the menu, I don’t want it with a side of bugs. I’m usually cool with the smell of my bar-b-que bringing the neighbors over, but I draw the line at those nasty bugs that want a taste of whatever I am grilling.
Pests To Look For in The Summertime
Mosquitos, hornets, meat bees, and ants are the usual pests that like to crash your bar-b-que party. The crazy thing is that they aren’t only attracted to the delicious smell coming off the grill, but some are also attracted to the griller! Mosquitoes can sense the carbon dioxide in a person’s breath from more than 30 feet away. Once they’ve got you in their sight, it’s game on for them. You are the one who is supposed to be doing the eating – not them!
I’d like a burger with a side of hornets. NOT! If you happen to have a hornets’ nest nearby, plan on them showing up, too. While they like to stay close to their nests, if there’s some grilling going on, they just can’t resist.
And then there’s the meat-lovin’ meat bees that seem to come out of nowhere to get their fix of some bar-b-qued goodness. I mean, can you blame them? It’s delicious!
And not to be outdone or forgotten are the ever-present ants that can’t help but crash a bar-b-que party. So rude! The good news is that there is a solution to all of your uninvited grilling guests! Howtopest.com has got you covered. They’ve got answers for mosquitoes, hornets, meat bees, ants, and any other pests that show up without being invited. You are on your own with the neighbors though!
how to get rid of summertime pests
Making sure your time outdoors is a pleasant one doesn’t have to be hard! Following these easy steps can ensure that you don’t have unwanted guests at your next bbq!
- Remove any miscellaneous items from your outdoor space, it is common for spiders such as the black widow spider to create nests under unused planters and lawn furniture.
- Make sure you don’t have any standing water. Mosquitoes love standing water and can multiply very quickly in a bucket or overwatered lawns.
- Make sure trash bins are covered tight to keep ants, cockroaches and flies away.
- Don’t leave food out and exposed.
- Maintain a protective pesticide barrier around your home, patio and lawn.
