With wintry days being almost over, it is time to welcome spring with open arms (and also with open windows and doors!). But before you heave a sigh of relief and get comfortable in your home, make sure that you have made your space bug-free for the season!
Spring is when most of the dormant pests become active and try to sneak into your place through the tiniest of cracks and crevices. You can reduce the possibility of pest infestation by opting for a pest control treatment. In this blog, we are going to discuss everything that you need to know to prevent the onslaught of pests in your property!
Pests You Need to Look Out For
When the weather starts warming up, many pests and insects come out of their dormancy. Some of the most common ones include carpenter ants, mosquitos, ticks, spiders, mice, and rats.
Carpenter ants, in search of food and shelter, create ant colonies in the wall. This results in severe damages to the property. If you begin to notice rustling sounds within the walls, or find piles of wood shaving beneath wooden items, know that carpenter ants have infested your house. They enter through piping, foundations, attic vents, and cracks in homes.
Mosquitos shouldn’t be taken lightly, as they carry different diseases with them. That’s why it is crucial to combat mosquitos before they create any problems for you and your family. Keep in mind that they develop in dirty areas and around stagnant water places.
Mice & Rats
While infestations are quite common, it is still a significant problem for property owners. No one wants to see those off-putting animals crawling around their home, transmitting various diseases. Look for holes or gaps on the exterior of your house. If you happen to find one, call our pest control experts immediately.
Wasps & Hornets
Wasps are known to be extremely active in spring. They slowly gather in the corners of your property, and before you know it, a large nest has already been built in a corner. They can readily sting you when they feel threatened.
Other Common Pests Are:
- Cluster and Drain Flies
