It’s that time of year again when our backyard cookouts, pool time, and other summer fun are all threatened by stinging pests. So we’re here to help you get a good idea of how to keep yourself safe, especially in case of a major invasion.
Let’s say you’re tired of staying inside and go to your backyard to do some grilling. Maybe you invite a few friends or neighbors over, and everyone is maintaining safe social distances. You’ve got your meat and veggies sizzling, a few beers or other tasty beverage opened, and people seem to be having a good time.
With the nicer weather upon us, it feels great to be able to spend more time outside. But when we do, there’s always a chance we’ll unintentionally bring some unwanted guests into our house with us. Like most insects, spring is the time when fleas and ticks become extremely active. What’s worse, once they’re in your home, they can be particularly tricky to get rid of. Luckily, there are a few things you can do to prevent them from getting in.
Ants are one of the more common home invaders in spring. Looking for new food and water sources, your home is an easy target for these quickly spreading nuisances. Ants are explorers and can easily get in through cracks, gaps, and other openings. And once they’ve found something they like, they create a scent trail that can attract other members of their colony.
As soon as the weather gets warmer and the ground begins to heat, termites like to come out of their winter hiding places searching for food, water, a new place to colonize, and probably a mate. Here are a few tips to ensure you survive the spring swarming season!
If you love your home and want its value to appreciate over the years, then it’s worthwhile to get an Annual Home Shield Plan. With Eco Care Pest Management’s Annual Home Shield Plan, you get year-round protection from the pests we manage that might try to make a home inside yours.
