With the Olympics fast approaching, the athletes are making preparations both physically and mentally for possibly the biggest days of their lives. They have actually been preparing their entire lives for this moment and now is the time for them to demonstrate their talents.
Closer to home, however, insects have been preparing for this exact time of year, and a little like the Olympians, are ready to demonstrate their talents inside the confines of your home. Now is the time that pests, especially the pests that invade buildings, will come out in full force.
While Olympians are on one of the biggest stages in the world doing what they do best, insects could be in your home, on your stage, doing what they do best. They could be in your bathroom or in your kitchen leaving droppings or old body parts. They could be hiding under your kids’ toys. They could be taking over your home from the inside of the walls out.
Unlike in London, however, these games can be stopped for the safety of your home, yourself, and your family. This time of year is when pests thrive, especially in air conditioned homes. These swarms of summer pests cannot be avoided, but they can be controlled. It just takes preparation and execution- just another Olympic comparison, I guess.
As you may have noticed, there is a lot of anticipation for these Olympic Games, and I would much rather watch the fastest people in the world do their thing, than worry about the nastiest insects do their thing. But to each his own.
