It can be so frustrating to deal with pests of any kind in and around your home. This frustration can be heightened when you can’t seem to get rid of the problem, no matter how hard you try, and when all you want to do is enjoy your home. Spring is a hot time for many types of pests. In this blog post, we’ll discuss some of the challenges of pest control in the spring months – and how you can take action to fight them.
In many areas of the United States, spring is one of the favorite times of year to enjoy the outdoors and get ready for the impending summer months. No one likes when pests try to ruin your springtime activities. Some of the more common pests you see in the spring include ants, bees, and wasps. These bugs come out during the spring months and are actively seeking food and shelter, which is why you might see them more frequently at this time of year.
One of the things you can do to help control pest activity before they can make themselves at home in your home is to keep it clean. By ensuring your home, both inside and out, is tidy, these pests will have fewer places to hide and call home. You can also ensure any holes in your home’s foundation are patched before the temperatures begin to rise.
Challenges of Spring Pest Control
As these are hot months for pests to hang around, there are inherently challenges that homeowners run into when trying to control the presence of these creatures. Some of those challenges include:
Food Safety in Gardens
Spring is also a big time for gardens to be planted. When trying to control pests, especially chemically, it is critical to understand what is in your pest control and how it might affect your food quality. Be sure to read labels thoroughly or ask your pest professional how these treatments will affect any food growing you are doing.
Identifying “Good Guys” and “Bad Guys”
In the spring, there are many creatures that are good to have around that help with natural processes, such as pollination. Having said that, it is important to have these types of bugs and animals around. Sometimes, it can be difficult for homeowners to distinguish between the “good guys” and the “bad guys.” Pest control professionals can certainly help with this. P
In the spring, many pests have a serious season of rapid reproduction to ensure their species continues to live throughout the course of the year. This can be really frustrating when you are trying to treat a certain pest type in or around your home, as it can feel like they just keep coming back, no matter what you do. Understanding where and how the specific problem pest is reproducing will help to eradicate it and fight the rapid reproduction.
Many children and pets begin to enjoy the outdoors in the spring. When controlling pests, it is critical to ensure these play areas are both pest-free and safe for kids to play, meaning chemical-free. Similar to the garden discussion above, reading ingredients and consulting a professional can help ensure your entire family is safe while eradicating your frustrating pest problem.
