Winter’s officially here, and if you haven’t made any serious efforts to prevent pest infestations, you could face a significant problem (if you aren’t already). The good news is that even now, when it’s cold out, and your home is warm and inviting to creepy crawlies, you can take some steps to protect yourself against pests.
At a glance, it makes sense that insects and other pests would go away during the winter months. The temperature dropping below freezing and burying the great outdoors in a heavy layer of snow seems like a surefire way to rid your surroundings of critters. But belief in such a tidy solution is wrong, and resting on your laurels until next March will come back to bite you. Here’s the lowdown on what pests to look out for over the winter.
The autumn season is here, so it’s time for warmer clothes, trendy apple and pumpkin dishes, and moths. As the temperature drops, these pests will seek warmth and food, and your wool sweaters, cashmere clothes, and furs can provide both. But by following these simple points, you can protect your clothes and potentially save yourself from expensive damage.
Say goodbye to sweltering summer temperatures and humidity, and say hello to stink bugs! As much as the cooler fall temperatures are welcomed, stink bugs have become a less-welcomed part of Autumn in Maryland.
For those of you who don’t enjoy the sweltering humidity of Maryland’s summer, will soon be sweater weather! But as you’re swapping out your wardrobe with warmer, comfier clothes, you might notice a few holes in those sweaters.
It’s that time of year again when our backyard cookouts, pool time, and other summer fun are all threatened by stinging pests. So we’re here to help you get a good idea of how to keep yourself safe, especially in case of a major invasion.
Let’s say you’re tired of staying inside and go to your backyard to do some grilling. Maybe you invite a few friends or neighbors over, and everyone is maintaining safe social distances. You’ve got your meat and veggies sizzling, a few beers or other tasty beverage opened, and people seem to be having a good time.
With the nicer weather upon us, it feels great to be able to spend more time outside. But when we do, there’s always a chance we’ll unintentionally bring some unwanted guests into our house with us. Like most insects, spring is the time when fleas and ticks become extremely active. What’s worse, once they’re in your home, they can be particularly tricky to get rid of. Luckily, there are a few things you can do to prevent them from getting in.
Ants are one of the more common home invaders in spring. Looking for new food and water sources, your home is an easy target for these quickly spreading nuisances. Ants are explorers and can easily get in through cracks, gaps, and other openings. And once they’ve found something they like, they create a scent trail that can attract other members of their colony.
