As we all know it gets pretty hot in Las Vegas in the summer. Ants are one of the pests that we see in the Las Vegas Valley during the summer months and they come in several varieties.
Ants are the most common insect that can be found in yards and gardens – most go unobserved living underground or out of sight. However they find their way indoors through small cracks near utility pipes and the foundation of the home or damaged weather stripping round doors and windows. They come into the home looking for food and water.
This past spring was certainly a wet one for the Las Vegas area and we now are starting to have over 100 degree days – perfect for bugs and pests to come out to annoy us. Expect to see a rise in the amount of Ants, Cockroaches and other insects this time of year. With the increase of these insects predators like scorpions and spiders that feed upon them may also increase. Flying insects like moths, gnats and flies will also be more noticeable. You may even see more bats around your home as they will be out feeding on the increased number of flying insects.
