Preventing Springtime Pests

April 20, 2023

When spring arrives, the weather warms up and more is happening outside than the blooming flowers. Pests begin to emerge and they are suddenly more prevalent than ever. Sometimes problems can enter your home and become a real issue. Here we will discuss some of the most common pests of the season and when you may need pest removal service.

Bees and Wasps

In warm weather, bees and wasps become more active. Although they do not always pose a threat, they can build nests in hidden locations. If disturbed, they can cause a painful sting, which can be especially harmful if you or someone in your home has an allergic reaction. Ground-dwelling bees and yellowjackets are aggressive and tough to avoid, as you may only see them once it is too late. Keep aware of any nests and ensure pest control takes care of them before their homes become too large.

Fleas, Ticks and Mosquitos

These pests are some of the most problematic of the season. They stay dormant in the colder months but can wreak havoc once they come out. Not only do these pests cause bites that itch, but they are also known to spread nasty diseases. For instance, the lone star tick can cause humans to become dangerously ill and it is essential to be proactive. If you detect these around your home, you may need pest removal services to remove them.

Venomous Snakes

Snakes can help mitigate other pests around your home, such as rodents. However, some are venomous and can be dangerous to pets and humans. For instance, if you see a snake with verticle pupils and an hourglass skin pattern, chances are it is a Copperhead. In this case, you will need an exterminator. Snakes like to stay out of sight, so keeping your grass cut and the area around your home clear of debris will limit places for them to hide.

Roaches and Bedbugs

Roaches and bedbugs are two common pests that homeowners often encounter. Roaches are attracted to food sources and can survive on almost any type of organic matter. They can be difficult to eliminate because of their ability to hide in small cracks and crevices. Bedbugs, on the other hand, feed on human blood and can cause skin irritation and other health problems. They are notorious for their ability to hide in small crevices, making them challenging to detect and eliminate. Dealing with these pests requires taking proactive measures such as keeping your home clean and tidy, sealing cracks and crevices, inspecting your bedding regularly, and contacting a pest control professional if you suspect an infestation. By taking the necessary measures to prevent these pests from entering your home, you can keep your family safe and healthy.
