May is the month of sunshine and warmth, but it’s also the time when pests come out to play.
Here are the top 5 pests that you might encounter in Southern Maryland this May:
- Ants: Whether it’s sugar ants or carpenter ants, these little pests can be a big nuisance in your home. Keep your kitchen clean and tidy, seal up any entry points, and call in the pros if you spot an infestation.
- Termites: These silent destroyers can cause significant damage to your home’s foundation if left unchecked. Look for mud tubes or hollow-sounding wood, and call in All In One Pest & Termite immediately if you suspect an infestation.
- Mosquitoes: Southern Maryland is known for its beautiful waterfronts, but it’s also a prime breeding ground for mosquitoes. Protect yourself and your family from diseases like West Nile virus and Zika virus by using mosquito repellent and eliminating any standing water around your home.
- Bed bugs: These tiny bloodsuckers can hitch a ride into your home on your clothes or luggage, and once they’re there, they can be tough to get rid of. Keep an eye out for signs of bed bugs like itchy red bites and tiny black specks on your sheets, and call in All In One Pest & Termite for effective bed bug elimination.
