Two Most Common Spring Pests in Middle Tennessee – from P.E.S.T. Inc.
Spring has fully sprung, and that means pesky insects are coming out of hibernation. As a home owner, you might be wondering what pests to look out for this time of year!
Two incredibly common Spring pests are ants and termites. It is best to maintain routine pest control throughout the year, but here are a few helpful hints to keep them at bay for Spring.
Because they are such a common house-infecting insect, ants are often thought to be the biggest irritating pest. To keep ants out of your home as much as possible, the first thing to do is eliminate their food source. Be sure to always utilize proper food storage and clean up spills quickly and thoroughly. These preventative measures will help ward off typical ants; however, carpenter ants can cause extensive structural damage to your home and property. Carpenter ants create nests in decaying wood and can multiply into colonies. They can enter your home through window frames, utility lines and plumbing. They are extremely difficult to eradicate, so let P.E.S.T., Inc provide a full interior and exterior inspection.
Termites are not typically a pest that many people have success eradicating successfully on their own. Call P.E.S.T., Inc immediately if you suspect a problem, so we can begin Sentricon® Termite Colony Elimination Systems (by Dow AgroSciences) as quickly as possible. We ensure proven colony eradication, environmental responsibility, and a manufacturer commitment, so termite concerns will be a thing of the past.
