Most Common Summer Animals & Pests that Require Wildlife Control

When it comes to wildlife animal control, homeowners are typically contemplating a very common dilemma. On one hand, trying to tackle the problem themselves means saving money in addition to feeling good about solving a problem. On the other hand, wildlife can be unpredictable and sometimes even dangerous. That creates the need for trained and experienced professionals who can remove the critters effectively and reliably. The usual philosophy applied in such situations is that DIY prevention is acceptable, while actual removal services should be left to professionals as they can be more complicated. That said, here are some of the most common culprits in the summer.


Squirrels are very common during warm weather. Indoors and out.

Common Summer Pests & Animals

There is a good chance that you will encounter at least one of these typical summer pests whether you are enjoying summer in an urban setting like a city; or rural area like the countryside. If you want to keep these summer pests from spoiling your precious summer days and nights, it is wise to know what to look for, as well as how to keep them at bay. Summer pests exist in many shapes and forms and the most common representatives include:

  • Bed bugs
  • Ants
  • Earwigs
  • Cockroaches
  • Mice/rats
  • Raccoons
  • Squirrels
  • Spiders
  • Hornets/bees/wasps
  • Termites

Looking To Brush Up On DIY Prevention Tips? Here’s What To Do

It is often said that prevention is far easier and better to do than actual removal and there are plenty of DIY ways you can make your home and property inhospitable for unwanted summer visitors. Here are some quick and easy tips:

  • Use an organic cleaner to disinfect drains and prevent things like debris, buildup and grease that can not only clog the drain, but also attract pests.
  • Remove places of shelter and all openings. This means you’ll need to conduct a thorough inspection of your home to locate all the cracks and crevices that may invite pests inside, as well as reduce potential shelter locations with decluttering.
  • Remove water and moisture areas by inspecting for leaks, plugging them and also removing any wet areas that exist as a result. This is particularly important because standing water both outside and inside attracts pests significantly.
  • Immediately clean up any spills or crumbs, and also throw away odourous food in a tightly sealed outdoor trash bin as it may attract pests into your home.
Bed Bugs

The bed bug is one of the most common bug infestations for homes.
