Memorial Day is a time when we remember and honor those who have died serving our country in the military. Not only is it a day of remembrance, it’s a day that friends and families come together and celebrate with cookouts, gatherings, and other fun outdoor activities. If there’s one thing that can put a damper on fun, it’s the small, unwelcome guests that raid the picnic table. Mosquitoes and other bugs can certainly ruin a BBQ, but it’s an even bigger problem if they make their way inside your home. To stay cool and keep the bugs out this summer, here are a few things that you can do.
Standing water is a breeding ground for mosquitoes, as well as other insects.

Some bugs will inevitably find their way inside, but if you notice an increase, you should switch on your AC.

With two small pieces, an outdoor unit and an indoor unit, ductless mini split systems are ideal for heating rooms or designated zones of your home-without letting the bugs in. Other benefits include:
