Don’t Feel the Sting of Spring

Spring Pests - Threat Level

Spring bugs are a common household problem- in part due to seasonal trends, but also due to human factors, including landscaping and maintenance. Spring pest control needs may surge as you encounter all manners of spring insects as the season is underway.

As you can tell from the chart, termites and ants are the highest risk for your home, with flies and rodents following not too far behind. The most common termite found during this time is the subterranean termite. If you spot mud tubes, displaced soil or piles of wings, you might be experiencing a termite infestation. The most common ants found at this time are the pavement, odorous house, and carpenter ants. Odorous house ants are attracted to sweets, so make sure to keep all fruits, wine, and soda properly stored.
