What pests are common in summer?
Do you remember smacking mosquitoes off of your arm by the pool, being stung by yellow jackets at your family barbeques, pulling ticks off of your dog after playing outside, or watching ants climb to the side of your lawn chair? Sometimes nature can ruin what would have been a pleasant summer memory.

The Asian tiger mosquito can be a carrier of West Nile virus, dengue fever, and Chikungunya. It’s important to protect yourself to avoid the risks of these pests. The CDC suggests “Wear long sleeve shirts, long pants, socks and shoes when mosquitoes are most active. Apply repellents such as DEET, picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus or IR3535 only to exposed skin and/or clothing (as directed on the product label). Do not use repellents under clothing.”

Ticks are commonly found in tall grasses or if your yard is backed up to woods (a wood line.) They are a silent predator, waiting within vegetation for a host to pass by. When a host such as a dog or human passes by, the tick latches on and feeds on the host’s blood. Ticks pose a serious risk of Lyme disease and other bloodborne illnesses and diseases. Controlling ticks on your own can be incredibly difficult because they are solitary. The source can be challenging to locate without extermination in Spotswood, NJ.
We offer a targeted tick treatment each summer to secure your property from potential infestations. While many companies focus on trying to treat ticks by providing large-scale turf applications, Cooper knows that ticks live and breed in the un-manicured areas around your home, and this is how we treat. Cooper’s methodology is much more effective and uses much less pesticide. To learn more about our tick services in Spotswood, NJ click here.
Stinging insects such as wasps and hornets are most active in the summer. You may be seeing nests in the eaves of your home, up in trees and bushes, or swing set, which indicates wasp activity. Although they are not innately aggressive, wasps will sting if they feel threatened. Yellow jackets can be found flying in and out of holes in the ground, making their location highly susceptible to unsuspecting feet or paws. Professional pest control is always suggested to avoid potential stings that can result in allergic reactions.
Cooper Pest Solutions uses stinging insect biology against them, tracking their patterns and learning how to treat each nest individually. When a technician arrives at your home, they will be wearing protective gear to avoid being stung. They will use materials to penetrate the hornet nest and reduce the population. The next step is to safely remove the nest and dispose of it in a cleanly and effective manor to avoid leaving residue on your property. Our technicians always make sure that you are part of the decision, informing you their exact procedures every step of the way.
Ants are the most common pest that our customers in New Jersey and Pennsylvania experience in the summer. Carpenter ants and nuisance ants could be found in and around your home, most likely being found in your kitchen, bathroom, basement, outside deck, paved areas, picnic tables, lawn chairs, and more. Although many DIY treatments can be found on the internet, only pest control professionals can ensure that ant extermination meets your needs.
Cooper Pest Solutions uses ant biology against them by identifying their trails and sources. Targeted applications set us apart from most pest control and lawn care companies that sprinkle pesticides over your entire lawn, hoping for the best. Our methods are proven by science and backed by our 100% satisfaction guarantee.
