Summer is a time for outdoor living: family barbecues, badminton games, or just lounging in the backyard. It is also a great time for working outside in your garden. Whatever you like to do in your yard, summer pests can really put a damper on things. Mosquitoes, fleas, ticks, and fire ants–to name a few–can turn a good day into a nightmare.
Mosquitoes: There is nothing that can ruin an outdoor event faster than a rising swarm of mosquitoes just as the late afternoon temperatures are becoming pleasant. Constant swatting does little to help and, contrary to popular belief, bug zappers actually make the problem worse, by luring in mosquitoes, but only killing the male (non-biting) mosquitoes.
Fleas and ticks: These pests can also put a damper on things, as folks would rather not be outside if they know your yard is full of fleas, or worse, disease-carrying ticks. And, constantly checking for ticks is a real pain if you are just trying to relax and enjoy your yard.
Fire ants: Even if there are no mosquitoes, fleas, or ticks around, mounds of fire ants can put an instant stop to any outdoor fun. These little biters are not just annoying, they can be dangerous to people who have an allergy and those who can’t get away from them, such as infants or the infirm.
