Prepare for a Pest Invasion as Spring Approaches


Table of Contents

As Spring approaches, the weather warms and pests begin to look for places to nest, breed and provide food for their young. This brings pests to your home at this time of year. Some pests are more harmful than others so it’s important to use caution when dealing with these troublesome pests. Your local pest controller can provide prevention tips to help you deal with pests this spring.

Spring is a time when many pests become more active, making it crucial to be aware of their presence in and around your home. Ants are one of the most common pests during this time of year, as they become more active with warmer weather and start searching for food sources. Ants are known to march in long lines towards food sources, such as your kitchen pantry or cabinets, so it’s important to store all food items in sealed containers and get rid of any stray ants you see crawling through your home. Sealing doors, windows, and cracks will also help prevent ants from getting inside your home in the first place.

Which Pests are Most Active During Spring?

Mice are another common spring pest that can cause havoc in your home. During the winter, they tend to be less active and stay hidden, but in the spring, they become more active and start searching for food everywhere. Mice can cause damage to your home’s insulation, walls, and even basement, so it’s important to prevent them from entering your home by sealing all cracks, holes, and openings with metal or cement. Food should be stored in glass or metal containers with tight lids, and all doors and windows must close properly.

Termites are a homeowner’s worst nightmare, causing extensive property damage and costing a lot of money to repair. Signs of a termite infestation include small holes in the wood of your home, crumbling drywall, drooping doors or floors, insect wings, and small shelter tubes. Termites are attracted to moisture, so it’s important to check your home for any water leaks. You should also check your home every couple of weeks to make sure there aren’t any spots where termites can find shelter. Sealing all cracks and holes in your home’s foundation will prevent termites from finding a convenient entry point.

The key to discouraging these pests from making your home their home is to remove their incentive to enter in the first place. Pests are looking for food, water, and shelter, so if you can eliminate these sources, they will have no reason to enter your home. Sealing and treating the cracks and holes in your home will prevent recurring pest invasions. In case of a pest infestation, FurBeGone Pest Control can help.
