It’s here: July, the hottest month of the year. If June didn’t exactly feel like the stifling Midwestern summer you’ve grown accustomed to, at least you won’t have to worry about that going forward. July is when the realities of summer, good and bad, start to sink in. The good: barbecues, swimming outside, T-shirt weather, sun, and… did we mention barbecues? The bad: bugs, bugs, bugs. Summer is prime bug season in the Midwest, and this year is no exception. You probably can’t do anything about the bugs themselves, but you can stop them from impeding your summer fun. Whether you’re getting out in the sun or enjoying the great indoors, these are four bugs you’re inevitably going to encounter, and what you can do about them.
