It's Spring Time! Don't Delay Call for your May appointment TODAY!
Spring is the time when many pests wake from their winter slumber. As the temperatures rise they become active looking for food, mating, and building nests and most likely will invade your home!
There are a lot of insects in our area that can be of concern, but the 3 most common in the Spring are:
Stinging Insects: Carpenter Bees, Bees, Hornets and Wasps like to build nests in and around your home. They could be found making their nests around your window frames, under eaves, fascia boards and in under the siding. Not all varieties sting but you BUT they can destroy and invade your home. ** We provide a bee/wasps prevention program starting in May - so call for your appointment now to assure you don't miss out on this popular program for our customers!
Ants: Carpenter ants will cause structural damage to your property by hollowing out timbers; they build colonies in damp and decaying wood. Smaller pavement ants, while not wood destroying, have outside dwellings and may venture inside looking for food.
Termites: These wood-destroying insects will cause structural damage to your property resulting in costly repair bills. Termites swarm in Spring looking for mates and a place to form a new colony. If buying/selling or refinancing your home please call our office for an inspection.
There a few tips you can follow to help prevent insects invading your home:
- Trim back trees and bushes away from the outside of your home
- Seal gaps and cracks in the exterior of your home
- Divert or remove standing water
- Keep kitchen counters clean
- Store food in sealed containers
