7 Summer Pests that Can Bug You the Most


2. Mosquitoes

These little buggers are known in some parts of the world as disease spreaders, but in the U.S. they’re primarily just a nuisance. They can ruin a relaxing lounge in your backyard with their buzzing and biting.

In some cases mosquitoes can carry viruses like West Nile, which can present flu-like symptoms and can be more serious if you have pre-existing health conditions. It’s best to protect yourself with bug repellant (containing DEET) or by wearing longer sleeves, notes the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
