Temperatures are starting to rise in Maryland, with the heat and humidity of summer right around the corner. Bugs thrive during this time, because they have access to the water that helps sustain them. It is important not to turn a blind eye to a pest infestation, because the earlier you address a problem, the easier it is to handle.
The following pests are particularly prevalent in Maryland in the spring, although they can be seen at other times of the year as well. Finding out more about them and their habits can help you figure out how to address a potential infestation on your property.
Ants want food, and that is the main reason they’ll invade your home. If they can’t find what they are looking for, they will move on to someone else’s property. That is why it is so important to carefully store food and to secure your trash. If you do see ants inside, make sure you clean the area well. Use a combination of water and vinegar to get rid of the ants pheromone trail; doing so will help keep the ants contained.
Traps are another option and allow you to avoid the use of pesticides. However, you need to put down plenty of traps if you want to truly cut back on the ant population. Targeting the nests is another method of reducing the numbers as well.
There are nearly 60 kinds of mosquitoes in Maryland. The breeding season begins in March and continues through October; any bit of standing water, even that in ditches and pools, can spur on mosquito populations and make it difficult to enjoy the outdoors.
Because there are so many mosquitoes in Maryland, many people believe that there isn’t much they can do to control the population. That isn’t true, however. Search for and eliminate standing water. Wear protective clothing when outdoors and put on mosquito repellent if you know you are going to be outside for a while. Get in touch with Barefoot Pest Control and ask for help if the situation starts to overwhelm you.
Stink bugs pop up in Maryland a few times over the course of the year. In the fall, they come inside to try and find a place to nest. In the spring, they want to reproduce and are also interested in food. For that reason, they tend to congregate around windows.
Don’t smash these pests; if you do, you’ll figure out very quickly why they are called “stink” bugs. If you find them inside, suck them up with a vacuum cleaner. Feel free to smush them whenever you see them outside, however. The resulting smell warns other stink bugs that there is danger nearby, so they start to avoid your property as a result.
It is essential to get a handle on the most prevalent pest species in your area. Armed with that knowledge, you can devise a plan to keep bugs out of your home throughout the year. In some cases, you may need to bring in a professional pest control company to help, particularly if an infestation has already taken root.
