5 Spring Pests You Need to Be Aware Of

Did you know thatĀ over 14 million homes deal with pest infestations each year in the US?

You might think you’re in the clear, but springtime is when many different bugs begin to pop up and cause issues for homeowners.

Don’t wait until it’s too late to have a quick fix! Instead, keep reading to learn about five common spring pests, so you know what to keep an eye out for.

1. Ants

Ants are one of the most common pests in spring to watch out for. As the weather warms up, they start coming out to find new food sources.

One major source for many colonies is kitchens. If you spot any ants inside your home, keep a close eye on the situation. You can try keeping food out of their reach by storing things correctly, but one ant can become many in no time.

It’s best to call a pest control company with residential services to take a look.

2. Flies

House flies, and fruit flies start cropping up in big numbers in the springtime.

They get inside in various ways, but opening your doors and windows more often as the weather gets nice gives them an easy way to enter your home. For many people, using screens to keep insects out is enough.

But if the amount of flies in your home is becoming an issue, getting them out is a priority because they can be frustrating to deal with.

3. Spiders

Spiders are common pests in the home year-round, but increased activity of other bugs can draw spiders out and increase their numbers.

Spiders, like most pests, multiply quickly and can become a problem you can’t control. Unfortunately, they’re also a significant fear for many people, so keeping them out of your home is essential.

4. Termites

Termites are one of the top house pests you don’t want to mess around with. They can ruin your home and items within it quickly if an infestation isn’t controlled.

You’ll need professional help to eradicate them and treat your home to prevent them from coming back.

5. Bees

Bees are the biggest problem in the spring and summer months. Having a few around is unavoidable, but it can quickly become a danger if you have a nest in your yard.

Bees are aggressive and can severely injure someone if they’re allergic. If you have pets or small children especially, bees are not a pest to mess around with.
