Reports say that bug season has started early this year, and with warm, wet weather, you can expect it to get worse.

Mosquito’s and ticks are what the pest control experts are getting the most calls for. Tall grass hides the ticks and mosquitos can breed with a very minimal amount of water. Something as small as a soda bottle cap filled with water can hold up to 100 mosquito eggs.

Keep your property dry and your grass mowed to help cut down on the issue.  Leaky outdoor faucets, clogged gutters, bird baths, and wading pools can also hold water. Repellent spray can also help to cut down on bites. Have a safe summer.
