A hornet nest


Hornets are large, aggressive wasps that can pose a serious threat to humans and animals. Hornets mate in the springtime, so their population surges in the summer. If you see a hornet’s nest on your property, it’s important to call a professional pest control company right away.

Mosquitoes are more than just annoying; they can also transmit dangerous diseases like Zika virus and West Nile virus. To protect yourself and your family, be sure to use mosquito repellent when spending time outdoors. You should also take steps to eliminate standing water around your property, as this is where mosquitoes lay their eggs. If you find yourself overwhelmed by mosquitos, it’s time for professional pest control.
