How to Stop Spring Pests from Invading Your Outdoor Space

While there are a number of insects during the spring and summer that can drive people insane, Michigan is unfortunately covered in the most annoying pest known to man: the mosquito. This creates an extremely high need for proper pest control in our area of Southeast Michigan. 

Pesky pests are all around the area, and when spring shows up, all we can think about is how to keep them away from our spaces — both the interior and exterior. During the warmer months, everyone is usually torn between having fun cookouts and campfires, all while being eaten alive by pests like mosquitoes and many others, or skipping out on these fun things and keeping yourself protected by staying inside. 

But you should not have to choose between those two! Especially when Michigan summers are so incredible that songs are written about it, who would want to miss out because of the mosquito bug?

It is wonderful how many different ways there are to keep your outdoor space a sanctuary for family gatherings and public or private events. When you feel like you cannot enjoy these events, it becomes a big problem. Keep reading to learn about several pest control options available to stop spring pests from invading your outdoor space. 


Dangers the Mosquito and Other Pests Pose mosquito on skin

West Nile Virus, St. Louis Encephalitis, Eastern Equine Encephalitis, and LaCrosse Virus are just a few diseases that can be transmitted to humans from the mosquito or other regular insects. While it might seem unlikely that diseases such as these will be transmitted to you, your family, or your guests, it’s actually more common than the average person realizes. The scariest part is that there is no vaccine or “cure” for these kinds of viruses! 


What You Can Do For Your Lawn

Something to keep in mind is that pest control services treat all types of insects. So whether that be ants, beetles, spiders, mites, or another insect, action needs to be taken multiple times throughout the warmer months. In Michigan, it’s obvious that we get another swarm of insects during the hottest months (July and August), and you can protect yourself from these by having your lawn treated at least five times over the summer to ensure you and your loved ones are safe and sound. 


Some At-Home Remediesmosquito on skin

Keeping up with a spray program is important and useful, but nothing is 100% effective because bugs live in nature. Some ideas for home pest control remedies include essential oils like peppermint and eucalyptus because the smells make the bugs run. Another option is tiki torches that are spread across your outdoor living area. This will ward off insects because the smoke repels them. Now you can have a clean and cozy space.
