Sean: So, what are some of the pests that we’re facing in San Diego right now? What’s common out there?

Sue: The common is ants, of course. They’ve been around forever. But the new ones we’re seeing more of would be spiders and mosquitoes, but spiders.

Sean: Yeah, I’ve seen both at my house but especially the mosquitoes where I live.

Sue: Yes.

Sean: You’re seeing that all over the county? All over southern California?

Sue: Especially, if you have water around you they are really becoming prevalent and we have to be careful about the mosquito situation.

Sean: More of them right now?

Sue: Yes.

Sean: Interesting, interesting. What kind of prevention can somebody do at home to reduce the chances of an infestation?

Sue: The biggest one that comes to mind right now is de-webbing and that just means you should have an inside and an outside broom with a head on it and you just knock down the webs and when you knock down the webs, the spider has to recreate that web and so they get tired of doing that. It’s amazing if you’ve ever seen them spin their web.
