Lexington's Residential Pest Control Experts on Springtime Pests to Watch Out For , Lexington-Fayette, Kentucky

Few situations are more stressful than discovering a bug infestation in your home. If your family’s haven has become a hotspot for pests, residential pest control is a priority, and the pest management professionals at Guarantee Pest Control can help. In fact, this Lexington, KY-based team wants to ensure that you and your family don't have to call for pest extermination services in the first place, and the best way to achieve that is by knowing what to look for when it comes to insects. 

Here are four springtime pests to look out for from the residential pest control experts of Lexington:

  • Termites: Subterranean-dwelling termites tend to swarm once the temperature starts to rise. If you see termites forming nests and colonies around your property, it could be indicative of a bigger termite problem inside your house. If left alone, termites will cause extensive damage to residential properties—more than $1 billion per year, in fact—and since most homeowners’ insurance policies do not cover termite damage, you should address a termite infestation immediately.
  • Bees & Wasps: Bees and wasps are dormant during the winter months, but they start forming colonies again once spring arrives. If you spot a bee or wasp in your home, call a residential pest control expert as soon as possible: Once they establish hives, these insects will be much harder to remove.

  • Ants: When the temperature hits 60 degrees, ants come out of their dormant stage and start foraging for food, which is why most homeowners find them in the kitchen. The smaller pavement ants are mostly just a nuisance, but large carpenter ants cause significant structural damage and should be exterminated as soon as possible.
  • House Centipedes: House centipedes are most active during the spring and fall, and they prefer cool, damp spaces like basements and bathrooms. They typically lay at least 60 eggs at a time, meaning for every one you see, there could be 60 more scurrying around out of sight. A pest extermination professional can ensure that they are completely eradicated from your home.
