July 4th – a time to invite friends and family over for a backyard barbecue. With the summer in full swing, it’s a great time to go outside and enjoy this festive event under the sun. Unfortunately, pests eagerly await your arrival and will ruin your gathering in seconds. Whether it’s mosquito swarms or fleas in the grass, Capitol Pest can eradicate the insects and help you enjoy a pest-free Independence Day.
Annoying Indoor and Outdoor Pests
Mosquitoes can turn an outdoor barbecue into an itchy nightmare. However, even if you bring the party indoors, you could be inviting other pests into your home. Fleas and ticks congregate in the grass and can attach to clothing and furniture. Once inside, they hide in the carpets and upholstery and are difficult to remove with conventional treatments.
Dealing with fleas, ticks, mosquitoes and other stubborn insects on July 4th can ruin the entire experience. Capitol Pest can treat your outdoor space ahead of time and prevent invasive swarms from spoiling the fun. If your barbecue area is left untreated, there’s a higher chance of dealing with mosquitoes, gnats and other flying pests. Because mosquitoes carry the West Nile virus, the Zika virus and encephalitis, it’s important to treat your event space and keep you and your family safe while entertaining outdoors.
How Capitol Pest Can Help
Some pests, such as roaches and rodents, view your home as a safe haven and a place of abundance. They use it to escape from outdoor predators and to snack on food in the pantry. Other pests, such as bed bugs, can hide in furniture, carpets and bedding and feed on you during the night.
