With weather warming up and flowers blooming, spring in Arkansas is a beautiful time of year. Unfortunately, we aren’t the only ones who love springtime. Some pests enjoy the season just as much as we do. Below you can see a few pests you should expect to receive a visit from this season in your Arkansas home or business.

  • Ants.
    Did you know there are over 12,000 species of this insect? They build colonies varying in sizes from 100 ants all the way up to 7 million ants. With those numbers, it’s easy to understand why this super strong and organized group of bugs is so common and difficult to get rid of. The first thing we’ll do? Locate the source and determine the damage the infestation has caused.
  • Termites.
    Did you know that the most destructive species of termites, the subterranean termites, are huge fans of Arkansas? Just like us, they love the warm weather, and your cozy home is the perfect meal to get them through the winter months. So far we have not discovered a DIY pest control that works for these critters due to their ability to spread throughout a home and do damage so quickly.
  • Wood rat.While we’re talking about unwanted guests, we couldn’t leave out the eastern wood rat that’s native to Arkansas. It can have up to 3 litters per year with up to 3 wood rat babies in each litter. This type of rat loves to “collect” your jewelry and other shiny pieces to add to its nest, so if you’re suspicious of an infestation at your home, don’t wait for a ring or watch to go missing. Give us a call today.
