During the winter, your pest control routine lies as dormant as you do. As you were watching Netflix and staying out of the cold, common household pests like termites and spiders were doing the same.
Now that it’s getting warmer out, it pays to call a reputable exterminator who can keep bugs at bay. Nance Pest Control of Churchville, VA, works hard to eliminate ants, flies, and spiders from local living spaces as temperatures rise.
Below are a few of the most common spring pests to watch out for.
Warmer weather motivates carpenter ants to emerge from their winter havens and forage for food and shelter. They are known to form colonies within walls, boring tunnels in wood that cause significant structural damage.
Bees & Wasps
These pollen lovers may have been hiding in your attic or walls all winter. Now that temperatures are rising, bees and hornets will come out to lay eggs and establish colonies right in your home.
Arguably the most fearsome household pest, spiders love to hide out in sheltered spots. If you see one of these eight-legged visitors, there are plenty of others hidden away. Although the mere sight of an arachnid is unsettling, remember—spiders actively feed on other insects in your home. Call an exterminator immediately if you spot venomous spiders like the black widow or brown recluse.
While it’s easy to blame Fido for a flea infestation, these jumpy parasites can also appear in pet-free dwellings. After calling the exterminator, bathe your pets and give them a flea treatment. Then, clean your entire home from top to bottom, and use a strong vacuum to suck up flea eggs, larvae, and adult fleas.
