You might not realize it, but pest control is needed year-round. There are certain things our team at Bug Police can help you with as summer turns to fall, and then again when the temperatures start to rise in the springtime. The measures we take outdoors can help keep those spaces pest-free and deter pests from entering your home.
In this blog, we’ll go over the reasons why pest control is a valuable investment in all four seasons.
- Spring: The spring is when termites are most active. Pest control technicians can apply preventative treatments and conduct careful examinations to check for termite infestations. Additionally, Texas is home to many fire ants and carpenter ants. Our team can find and eliminate ant colonies, helping you avoid painful bites and structural damage. Rising temperatures can also increase mosquito activity, and we can help mitigate these risks, too.
- Summer: The summer is when mosquitoes are most active. To reduce mosquito populations and lower the risk of getting bitten, it’s a good idea to continue the mosquito control methods you started in the spring. Furthermore, warm environments are ideal for cockroach growth. Our pest control team can locate and eradicate cockroach breeding areas, set up baiting stations, and offer advice for preventing future infestations.
- Fall: When the weather becomes colder, rodents move inside for protection. We can assess your space and recommend areas that need to be sealed off, as well as provide rodent control measures to keep them from getting inside. This is also a time when you might see more spiders, but our team can locate and remove any of these pests inside your house.
- Winter: Rodent activity can be a serious issue during the winter months. Our pest control team is prepared to inspect your space and implement rodent deterrent strategies wherever necessary. Winter is also a great time for pest prevention, especially before termite activity kicks up again in the spring.
