As the weather warms up, insects and other pests begin to come out of hibernation. While some of these creatures are harmless, others can cause considerable damage to your home or garden. In this blog post, we’ll take a look at some of the most common spring pests that you might encounter.
Ants are among the most common household pests in the world, and they come out in droves during the warmer months. Depending on the species, ants can invade your kitchen or bathroom in search of food and moisture. To prevent an infestation, make sure to keep all food items securely stored away and clean up any crumbs or spills as soon as possible.
As temperatures rise, spiders emerge from their winter hiding spots looking for prey and new places to build their webs. Some spiders—like black widows—are venomous and should be avoided at all costs. Others—like wolf spiders—are harmless but still frightening to many people. If you’re dealing with a spider infestation, contact a professional pest control service as soon as possible.
Mosquitoes are another common pest that tends to appear when the weather starts warming up. Not only can mosquitoes spread diseases like Zika virus and West Nile virus, but their bites also itch terribly! To reduce mosquito populations around your home or yard, make sure to eliminate any standing water sources where they could breed and use insect repellant whenever you go outside.
