End of Summer Critters to Watch Out For

Bees, Wasps, Carpenter Ants, Termites, Mosquitoes



Ah, the flying insect family! For the end of the season, the flying insects to watch out for are the bees, wasps, and mosquitoes. One can be allergic to bees and wasps, and the sting doesn't exactly tickle. Mosquitoes are also known to bite and can cause bumps if irritated.

Bees won't necessarily go out of their way to bite you, but will if they are frightened or feel threatened. Wasps tend to be more aggressive than their cousin. If you are in their vicinity, for no reason at all, they may sting you. They're the "predators" of the insect family.

Mosquitoes, oddly enough, are attracted to the carbon dioxide we omit from our breath. Also oddly enough, they can also sense heat and smell the blood of their potential host. This is what attracts them. So if you have "good blood," you will more than likely be getting bit all summer long - unless you take precautions such as regular pest control or simple prevention habits.

Carpenter ants and termites are the "wood-destroying" insects to worry about this summer and getting into the fall. Termites will eat the wood that you have within your residence or commercial structure. Carpenter ants won't eat the wood, they will just use it to colonize, which will in turn cause massive damage.
