The spring season is a time to smell blooming flowers, listen to chirping birds, and finally trade in that parka for a light jacket. But unfortunately, springtime also signals the return of many common household pests.
No one likes to see bugs and rodents wandering around the house, so it’s important to refresh your memory about pest prevention strategies and know who to call if it becomes difficult to manage.
Troublesome Pests That Come Out in Spring
Some pests are more likely to strike your home in the months of March, April, and May. Certain pest species remain dormant during the cold weather months and are reawakened at this time of year in search of food and shelter.
These are some of the troublesome pests that often find their way indoors in the springtime.
- Carpenter Ants
- Asian beetles
How to Prevent Springtime Pests
Fortunately, there are a lot of things that you can do right now to prevent pests from entering your home and having to deal with an infestation situation later. The first pests that many people see in the spring are ants, and there are several varieties of them, including sugar ants, carpenter ants, winged ants, and large and small black ants. Bees and wasps are also prevalent around this time of year because of all of the newly planted gardens, plants, and wildflowers in bloom.
Here are some prevention tips to work on this spring for a pest-free home:
- Take a walk around the exterior of your home to look for cracks in your foundation and seal them up
- Keep an eye out for bee and wasp nests, and call Precise Pest Control if you see one
- Keep bushes and trees away from the house
- Don’t leave opened food packages lying around the house
- Ensure that trash can lids are secured
- Never store firewood next to your home
- Destroy cobwebs you find around the house
- Repair water leaks to reduce standing moisture
