The warm temperature of spring brings blooming flowers and pests emergency from their hidden places in the winter to enjoy the various great things that come with spring. This means that it is a time of year with much likelihood of infestation-if you don’t the needed by protecting your property. Considering the nuisance that pests can cause you and your family, the destruction they can do to your property, and the stress of getting rid of these stubborn insects, prevention is always better than cure. In this post, we discuss the pests you can expect in the spring and how to deal with them successfully.
Ants: Spring is a good time for worker ants to explore as they search for food, usually the sweet substances. They may find their way into your home during their foraging, and although most do not pose any physical risk to humans, they can be a major nuisance as they come in large numbers and a health hazard since you don’t know where they have been before coming to you. Dealing with this problem will take more than destroying one nest; you have to use insecticides while also removing what attracted them to your home.
Bees: Since flowers bloom in the spring, you can expect bees to be having a field day as they move from one plant to another gathering nectar and pollinating. Bees may decide to build their nest in your home and make honey which will definitely attract other insects. Carpenter bees can burrow into your walls, causing damage and if disturbed, bees can sting you. So ensure that your home environment is well kept and Monitor your home surroundings to see if you notice a nest, if you find one, knock it down.
Spiders: These insects don’t cause much harm to humans except for some poisonous species. All they want to want to do is weave a web and eat insects, so if you don’t mind, you can leave the spider alone. On second thought, that means having to clear cobwebs every time if you don’t want them to have full control of the home. So, it might be a better idea to get them out of your home.
Flies: House flies are fruit flies are plentiful in the spring, and you really have to find a way to control them. While fruit flies are not harmful, house flies are germ carriers and will contaminate anywhere the perch on. So it is better to get rid of them. Ensuring that there’s no odour in your home and cleaning out sticky food substances is a good way to prevent them, but once they are, insecticides on the wall can do the trick. These products usually last for some months once applied and fly that touches them dies.
Cockroaches: These insects are destructive, breeds very fast, can become adaptable to control measures, and once there’s an infestation, it will require a continuous process of treatment to get rid of them.
