How To Get Rid Of Bugs In Raleigh, NC


Summer brings sun and lots of fun. It’s a great time for hiking, swimming, picnics, and other great outdoor activities. When stung or bitten by pests and other bugs, your fun is put to a stop. To ensure your summer is not ruined, this is how you should successfully avoid pests and other bugs in Raleigh, NC.

How To Manage Summer Pests

  • Ticks: If you own a cat or a dog, summer ticks can be a huge concern. When you take a walk with your dog, the chances that your dog will get ticks are very high.  After every walk with your dog, conduct an active inspection by combing through the fur and checking for any ticks attached. If you happen to discover any, you should use tweezers to remove them. There are also treatments you can use on your dog to keep ticks away.  
  • House Fly: Spilled sweet beverages and decaying fruits can attract houseflies in your house. Always maintain a clean house. This means that you should take out the garbage regularly, use disinfectants to wipe counters, and clean up leftovers. Simply eliminate all things that can draw flies into your house.
  • Stinging Insects: Bees, wasps, and other pollinating insects can attack when threatened. These insects can also cause threatening risks to those who are allergic to their stings. Hire professionals to remove their nests from your yard.
  • Termites: Termites tend to come out of their winter nests and look for their next food source for summer. If their nest is located near your house, they can start consuming wooden structures around the house. Inspect wooden structures around your house and contact professional pest control services for help.
