Dealing with the 3 Most Common Spring Pests
The cold season has probably given everyone a break from pests. But spring is right around the corner, raising temperatures and encouraging these bugs out of hibernation. You’ll need to brace yourself, and start dealing with them before they can make their comeback. The premier expert in residential pest control services, BugWorks Pest Control Co. discusses some of the common pests to watch out for this spring, along with how to get rid of them.
1. Carpenter Ants. Imagine leaning a hand against a wall and finding it wrist-deep into carpenter ants. When spring arrives, so do these pests, which make their colonies inside walls. If you hear rustling sounds inside the woodwork or within the walls, or discover piles of wood shavings under wooden items, then there’s a big chance your home is infested with carpenter ants.
What to Do. Carpenter ants travel a long way to seek food and shelter. Don’t give them the idea that your home is free real estate by checking your exterior for any cracks in the stone, chipping on window panes, or open slots underneath doors. Seal them as necessary to prevent any pest infestation.
2. Mosquitoes. Like most other pests, mosquitoes can be found almost anywhere–not just in the tropical climes they’re generally associated with. Mosquitoes don’t wear down your home’s structure, nor linger around stored food, but they do cause skin irritation–and spread serious diseases–with just their bites.
What to Do. Remove and dry out any deep puddles or stagnant water around your property because these are the ideal breeding ground for mosquitoes.
3. Termites. The fact is that termites can make Swiss cheese out of your home, weakening its structure and leading to costly and extensive damage. Some clear indications of a termite infestation include termite mounds, hollow-sounding wood, sagging floors and ceilings, and crumbling woodwork.
