How to Avoid Mosquito Bites
Mosquitoes are definitely one of the most irritating pests around. Every summer they invade our barbecues and leave us covered in itchy, red bumps. The good news is, there are a few precautions you can take to avoid these unbearably uncomfortable bites.
You can avoid mosquito bites by:
- Avoiding dark clothing
- Wearing loose-fitting long sleeves, pants, and close-toed shoes
- Staying away from standing water sources such as ponds and birdbaths
- Wearing mosquito repellent
- Avoiding going outside during dusk and dawn (most popular times for mosquito breeding)
Do I Have Termites?
One of the most frustrating things about termites is that they can be eating away at the structure of your home for years before you ever know they are there. In order to avoid massive amounts of damage, it is best to be aware of the various signs that you have an infestation. Signs that you have termites include mud tubes around the foundation of your home, piles of small wings that have been shed, a swarm of winged ants (these are actually termites), hard-to-shut doors, visibly damaged wood, extra-creaky floors, and more.
How Did I Get Bed Bugs?
Bed bugs are expert hitch hikers. They will attach themselves to just about any item such as a purse, used furniture, clothing, or luggage until they make their way into your home. They easily spread from room to room making them most common in larger housing facilities such as hotels and apartments.
