Indoor pests are most active during the warmer months. Insects, in particular, have a somewhat predictable schedule, one that you can use to your advantage! Read on to find out why it is advised to hire reliable pest control services during the bug world’s busiest time of the year: early spring.
The animal and plant kingdoms have a special relationship with nature. You can find examples of this phenomenon across the globe: trees going into dormancy, bears hibernating for winter, and bees “holing up” in their hives until the air warms again. Most important for some of our buggy pests is the death of flowers. There are thousands of flower species that die in autumn and winter. Without this sustenance, many bugs die, too. Without food and exposed to extreme temperatures, bugs just can’t survive and your home or business is (mostly) safe until spring.
This is the season to worry about pest infestation. When animals start to wake from their dormant and hibernation periods, insects get active. The abundance of plant life and rising temperatures draw them out and give them the warmth and food they need to thrive. The ponds, lakes, rivers, and streams that were frozen or cold are now perfect breeding grounds. The crawlspaces beneath your house are warm and damp from spring rains, and there’s nothing to stop pests multiplying with abandon.
What Should You Do?
This is the time when it’s most important to take precautions. Insects reproduce quickly due to their short lifespans, so you’ve got to get the jump on them, if you can, and treat as much of your home or place of business as possible. Call a professional pest control company to keep the bugs under control and out of your living spaces.
