(BPT) - People are welcoming summer with open arms but along with the sunshine comes the other less desirable signs of the season. Mosquito eggs start to hatch, termite swarms look for new homes, and stinging insects begin buzzing.

The National Pest Management Association reminds homeowners to pest-proof their homes this season and to learn more about the most common pests in their area and what attracts them. Whether it's ants, mosquitoes, ticks or wasps, the NPMA suggests these tips for preventing a wide variety of pests from sneaking indoors.

Stevens Pass summer operations are expanding
It used to be ski areas sat mostly empty in the summer time. Not anymore, at least for Stevens Pass Mountain Resort. The resort is booming these days with a Mountain Bike Park, scenic rides, hiking and disc golf.

The Steven Pass Mountain Bike Park is in its third full season of operations.

"It has definitely grown. This year, we have seen crazy growth with a couple new trails we opened at the start of last year," said Nate Escalona, Stevens Pass marketing manager. "People are really starting to come up here and try it out. A lot of the local contingent is still into it. We are trying to have something new each year."
