It’s Been A "Buggy" Summer In Denver & Colorado

If it seems to you like the insect population in or around your home has exploded this summer, you are correct! With record rainfall across Colorado in recent months, our state has become a paradise for all things insect. In today’s blog post, we’ll look at a few of the insects that are contributing to a “buggy” summer in Denver, Boulder, and Colorado Springs as well as NoCo.

Bugs that are making the most of the summer this year

Many of the pesky creatures that we loathe are attracted to the damp, humid weather and their numbers explode when moisture abounds. Ants, cockroaches, crickets, mosquitoes, and spiders are just a few of the pests thriving in Colorado this summer.  

While you cannot control the weather, you can make your property less attractive to insects

It’s impossible to change the weather, but the good news is that there are certain strategies you can use to limit the insect population on your property this summer. Here are a few ways to prevent summer pest problems:

  • Take out the trash and keep lids on outdoor bins
  • Seal gaps on the exterior of the house
  • Keep doors and windows closed or use screens to deter bugs
  • Fix A/C leaks and other plumbing issues that are creating damp and moist conditions in and around your home
  • Keep your kitchen spic and span (that includes the drains)
  • Inspect plants for bugs before bringing them inside
  • Mow your lawn regularly
  • Clear away rotting logs and other organic material
  • Eliminate standing water on your property
  • Use warm LED or yellow bulbs in your exterior lights to repel bugs

Contact EnviroPest and enjoy the rest of the summer pest-free!
