Pest Control

Sick of Staying Indoors? How Yard Pest Control Can Change Your Summer

Why do homeowners call to schedule yard pest control this time of year? Because it’s no fun being stung, bitten, and eaten alive by annoying bugs. While insects ranging from mosquitoes to gnats are annoying and potentially dangerous, there are even more sinister pests lurking in your Atlanta-area yard – some of which you may never have a problem with, others are annoying, and still others are downright dangerous.

Here are just a few:

Yellow Jackets, Hornets, and Wasps

These can be very aggressive, or relatively docile, depending on their species. They will sting if provoked, and they can sting multiple times because they keep their stingers. Worse still, they may sting as a group, relentlessly and repeatedly.

Fire Ants

You’ll recognize these by their noticeable dirt mound homes, but they may also be spread out in your grass or in shrubbery. Fire ants are especially dangerous because many people are allergic to their bites. An army of fire ants may crawl all over a victim’s legs unnoticed, and then bite all at once. Their bites, even for those who are not allergic, are painful and leave itching, oozing welts that take weeks to heal.


Disturb a scorpion, and you’re likely to get stung. The sting of a scorpion is not only painful, but can be very dangerous, causing blurry vision, nausea, vomiting, and slurred speech if not treated.

Brown Recluse Spider

These may be one of the most dangerous spiders in your yard and home. They hide in places where they are unlikely to be disturbed. Their bites may be painful, or, surprisingly, go unnoticed until there’s a serious reaction. Bites require immediate medical attention because they can cause life-threatening problems, including gangrene.

Black Widow Spider

These small spiders bear the telltale red hourglass marking on the belly. They like dry, quiet spots that are typically hidden from view. They are highly poisonous. Their bites are very painful and require immediate medical attention because they may cause vomiting, chest pain, dizziness, and even breathing trouble.

The good news is that you don’t need to battle these backyard invaders on your own. Ridding your home and yard of these pests requires knowing where to look for them, how to approach them responsibly, and which extermination process and solution to use. A flip flop, fly swatter, or can of hairspray will not do the trick.
