What Are June Bug Infestations and How Do You Deal With Them?
June bugs become more active during the warmer months of the year. While they do not bite or sting, having June bugs smack on your doors and windows can be annoying. If you have pet cats or dogs, they might accidentally swallow one and cause serious problems. This is why the leading pest control experts in the area are here to share a few tips on how to deal with them.
Identifying June Bugs
The first thing to check if you have a June bug infestation is to properly ID the bugs. June bugs have two sets of wings, with the first pair acting as a hard casing. Unlike cockroaches, June bugs cannot crawl or fly fast. During the nighttime, June bugs tend to cling to walls or screens near light sources.
June bugs are most dangerous when they’re least visible, as young. June bug larvae or grubs are voracious eaters and will eat the roots of your plants. If left unchecked, it can be difficult to grow anything on a lawn infested by June bug larvae. Residential pest control services are almost always needed because digging up grubs one by one is difficult.
Dealing With June Bugs
Getting rid of June bugs mostly involves picking them up by hand and drowning them in soapy water. You can also kill them with bug spray or a homemade bug killer solution. Since June bugs are attracted to light, setting bug zappers outside can also kill a large number of the pests.
