Seasonal Pest Report

Pests constantly seek food and shelter, making homes vulnerable to infestation year round. As temperatures rise and fall, pest activity changes. This is why different pests become more of a nuisance during different seasons. Listed below are the most common seasonal invaders that make pest control a year-round necessity.

SPRING

Spring weather can bring rain showers and flowers, but it can also invite ants and other pests into your home and yard. Common spring pests include: spiders, aphids, wasps, ants, fleas, ticks, and pantry pests such as Indian meal moths.

SUMMER

Wasps and yellow jackets are active in warmer months, as well as ants, earwigs, millipedes, crickets, and outdoor cockroaches. Extended periods of drought and warm weather will affect food supply, forcing pests such as spiders, ants, scorpions and rodents to venture indoors for food and water.

FALL

Spiders, beetles, box elder bugs, rodents, and other overwintering pests begin to move indoors as temperatures drop and cooler weather approaches. These pests like to use walls, voids, basements and attics as their winter retreats.

WINTER

Warmth indoors attracts pests into your living spaces. Cold weather conditions bring inside rodents, silverfish, spiders, cockroaches, and fleas. Pests can also be brought inside on plants, food products, firewood, and other items.

Rainfall and moisture will continually aggravate ant colonies throughout the winter, forcing ants to seek dry ground indoors. Moisture can also promote pest reproduction and accelerate growth, thus increasing the need for pest control service maintenance.

"Steven was right on time and very thorough inside and outside. We had a lot of wasp nests which he knocked down and treated the area so they will not return. We also had a problem with fire ants. He took care of this too. Steven pointed out some areas on the outside of the house that I need to fix and told me how. He seemed to really know his stuff. Steve was very polite, happy, funny, and informative."
