Temperatures are rising which means the last snow of winter will soon be melting away and spring will arrive. Unfortunately, with nicer weather come a few downsides, including an influx of pests. But just what are some of the most common pests that property owners encounter in the spring? We’re here to answer your questions and provide you with prompt and efficient extermination services!
A common pest found throughout spring and into the summer is termites. Like many household pests, termites can cause widespread damage to your property if allowed to swarm and reproduce. Termites can sometimes be confused with carpenter ants, but both pests can become a serious issue. While it is normal to notice a few flying ants around your home and in your yard, if you are seeing large swarms of either termites or carpenter ants on your property, you should seek help as soon as possible.
Another pest that likes to come out in spring is mosquitoes. Not only can mosquitoes become a minor annoyance due to their tendency to bite people, but they can actually carry and transmit serious diseases like West Nile virus. While most mosquitoes are generally harmless, it’s best not to take chances if they have a nest near your home.
Other pests that you may encounter throughout spring include ticks, ants, spiders, and beetles. Of course, you may also begin to see rodents and other types of wildlife around your property as well. If any of these pests are becoming a nuisance, don’t panic. The team at Blue Ridge Termite and Pest Management Group can take care of the problem in no time!
