Prepare for the Springtime Pest Emergence!

No matter what you might believe, there's not a single month in the year that we don't experience some type of pest problem in Missouri. Different seasons of the year bring different pest problems. As we enter a new season, it's important to realize that while many pests have been dormant during the winter months, many of those will begin to awaken and make themselves known to the world again.

Prepare for Pest Emergence
In the spring ice melts, temperatures warm and the flowers bloom. With this mix of warmth and moisture, pests will begin to emerge from their winter nesting spots and activity starts to increase. Bees and wasps awaken from their dormant state, termites may swarm and excess rains might bring ants indoors in search of higher-ground.

Springtime is Mating Season
Although pest activity increases in the spring, the vast majority of pest movement and patterns tend to occur outside of the home as pests seek food and water and look to mate. Some pests, however, will be looking for protected places, such as your home, to build a nest. Remain mindful of any changes you notice inside your home, such as a pile of bug wings or ant invasion. If you remain aware of regular insect patterns in and around your home this spring, you’ll be better prepared to prevent and control any potential pest problem.

Common Springtime Pests
In spring, termites begin mating and building new colonies. This is their “swarming season”, as they prefer warm weather, especially after rain. Springtime is also when clothes moths begins breeding. Other common spring pests include stinging insects, ants and cockroaches. Increased travel at this time of year for spring break trips and such can lead to bed bug infestations as well. And don't forget about ticks! Believe it or not, ticks tend to wake up surprisingly early in spring. They wake hungry, and begin 'questing' almost immediately for their first meal of the season.

Don't Forget about Emerging Rodents
As you prepare your lawn this spring season, you may find that a critter has taken up residence nearby.
