Some of the summer pests seen commonly in UAE are,
Bedbugs multiply rapidly in the summer season. The optimum temperature of bed bugs is 18- 20 degrees Celsius. So, during the months of June and July, they will multiply and spread uncontrollably. Preventative pest control is one of the best methods to get rid of bedbugs before infestation. Washcloths and bedding in hot water frequently and store them in plastic bags which helps to keep bed bugs away.
Mosquitoes are the most annoying pests ever in UAE. They cause dangerous health hazards also. Even though they multiply and become active during the rainy season, we can spot them in summer also. Taking prevention methods is the best way to get rid of mosquitoes before they spread all over.
