When it comes to spring pest prevention, there is only one truly effective and reliable way to keep pests at bay; professional pest control in the Woodlands. Our article covers the types of pests that you may encounter in spring and how to avoid problems with them.

The Types Of Pests That Can Invade Homes In The Spring

While many of the below pests may invade your home year-round, they tend to be more active in the spring as the winter weather wears off and they set out on a renewed search for food, water, and safe shelter. Springtime may also encourage many of these pests to start reproducing again, something that can easily lead to out-of-control infestations in your home.

  • Ants
  • Spiders
  • Termites
  • Rodents
  • Mosquitoes
  • Fleas
  • Ticks
  • Cockroaches
  • Stinging insects (such as wasps)
  • Wildlife such as birds, raccoons, and squirrels

The Problems Pest Can Create In Your Home

Any of these pests can create serious problems once they invade your home, which is why local pest control should be trusted to remove infestations before they become out of control. The damages that any pest can cause in your home include the destruction of internal structures via gnawing or tunneling (rodents, carpenter ants, and termites are major culprits for this) and the soiling of your home due to urine and feces.

Additionally, pest invasions can present serious health risks as pests such as cockroaches and rodents can bring in several diseases. You may pick up these diseases through contaminated food and surfaces or contact with the pest. Plus, pests like fleas, ticks, ants, and spiders all present a risk of biting those in your home or triggering allergic reactions; cockroaches are especially known for causing breathing issues.

Because of the number of problems pests can create in your home, we recommend reaching out to a pest control advisor at All-Safe Pest & Termite at the first signs of invasion in your home.

Six Natural And Effective Springtime Pest Prevention TipsĀ 

If you want to protect your home from pests, put into place our six top prevention tips and stop an infestation before it gets started.

  1. Pest-proof your home by sealing up potential entry points such as cracks in the windows, doors, and foundation. Put window and door screens into place and keep exterior entrances closed as often as possible.
  2. Invest in a chimney cap to keep pests from entering this way and patch up any cracks or broken roof shingles. Put mesh screens over large attic windows that may let pests in.
  3. Always store leftover food properly and refrain from leaving out perishable items. Consider using airtight containers in pantry areas to keep pests from scavenging.
  4. Dispose of trash properly and always use a tightly sealed bag. Refrain from leaving out dirty dishes or food and drink spills.
  5. Address moisture issues around your home and fix up leaks around your property as pools of water attract most pests.
  6. Keep your yard clear of debris and remove fallen fruit or branches. Fill in holes and keep the grass trimmed low.
