Spring & Summer Pest Control Advice

As the weather gets better we come into Spring & Summer, the seasons when pests are most active and reproduce. Warmer temperatures and higher humidity create ideal conditions for insects and other pests to thrive and infest homes and businesses. Common pests include wasps, ants, and rodents.

In addition to being a nuisance, pests can also pose health risks to humans and animals. Pests can carry diseases and other dangerous pathogens while also causing significant damage to wooden structures, contaminating food and spreading bacteria.

Regular pest control measures can help prevent infestations and keep homes and businesses safe and clean. This may include regular treatments, inspections, and pest-proofing measures to seal off entry points and minimize the risk of pests entering the property. By staying proactive and vigilant about pest control, individuals can enjoy a safer, more comfortable living environment in the spring and summer months.

Why is good pest control important?

  • Health and Safety – Pests such as rodents, roaches, and mosquitoes can spread harmful diseases to humans and pets. Good pest control can prevent the spread of these diseases through the elimination of pests or the implementation of measures to reduce their populations.
  • Protection of Property – Pests can cause significant damage to property, such as termites that can eat away at the structure of a building or rodents that can chew through electrical wires. Good pest control helps to prevent such damage from occurring, which can save property owners from costly repairs.
  • Food Safety – Pests can contaminate food, making it unsuitable for consumption. Good pest control in food processing and storage facilities is crucial to prevent foodborne illnesses caused by pests.
  • Environmental Protection – The use of pesticides and other forms of pest control can have negative impacts on the environment, such as contaminating water supplies or harming non-target organisms. Good pest control practices focus on minimizing the use of such products and using more environmentally-friendly methods.

Overall, good pest control is essential for maintaining a healthy, safe, and pest-free environment in both residential and commercial settings.
