COMMON SPRING PESTS
The change of seasons dictates many things in life that are unavoidable and unchangeable. The weather is going to do what it wants whenever it wants to do it. The winter season ushers in snow and icy conditions. Spring brings warmer temperatures and spring rains, both of which trigger many things from grass and weed growth to blooming flowers, baby birds and wildlife. Most of these seasonal changes give us no choice but to accept them and learn to adapt to such.
Another thing that takes place this time of year is the emergence of spring pests. New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, and the Eastern Shore of Maryland residents are already recognizing an increase in pest activity as these spring pests are being awakened with the warming temperatures. Spring season is a prime time for pests as they come out of hiding after a long cold winter. A few of the more common spring pests include termites, wasps, ants, flies, mosquitoes and beetles.
Most of these spring pests are more than just a nuisance. There are increased health risks and potentially destructive effects as a result of spring pests. For example, the termite is a very common spring pest. After a long, hard winter, termites are eagerly searching for places to move in and begin eating away at the structure of your home.
Paper wasps also become very active this time of year as they begin building their nests. Paper wasps can be very aggressive and will fiercely defend their nests. This can be a problematic situation especially for homes that seem prone to paper wasp invasions.
Even though ants are a problem throughout most of the year, they start emerging in full force during the spring season. Carpenter ants, like the termites, are very common and can cause damage to structures. Other ants like the sugar ant invade homes as they forage for food to feed the very hungry colony that was short of food all winter.
We all know the pesky flies that begin swarming and invading homes during the spring. Mosquitoes begin buzzing around and biting people with a great intensity as the spring rains give the water needed for breeding. Cockroaches also have an increased activity in the spring as they invade homes while searching for food. Cockroaches are noted for filth and spreading diseases.
