Spring is almost upon us and the days are getting longer! Although we might experience a little more cold weather before we finally see the full effects of spring time in Plymouth and Devon, it won’t be long before we see the spring blossom, lambs in the fields and unfortunately pests in out home. While winter sees rodents come inside to take shelter from the cold weather, we see different pests in spring. Flies, cockroaches, ants and wasps will start to build their nests. If you suspect they might be building these nests in your home, it’s time to call in the Plymouth pest control experts.
It can be quite hard to spot ants in spring, usually we see them when they are out in force in summer but rest assured if you are going to be having ants as house guests they will start to make their home in spring.
Another spring pest that will find its way in is the cockroach. To try and ensure that they don’t find your Plymouth home an attractive prospect, it is important to be hygienic. Clean up any spills as soon as they occur and make sure you wipe down any greasy surfaces. Don’t leave rubbish in an easily accessible place either.
As soon as the weather starts to get warmer out come the flies. Exercise regular cleaning practise to keep your house as free from flies as possible.
You will first start to notice wasps in late spring. These large wasps will be the Queen who will be looking for somewhere suitable to make her nest. Unfortunately these nests can be holes in bricks, under the eaves of our roof or in outbuildings. While you won’t see other wasps at this time of year it is a sure sign that you will later.
Exercising caution now and calling in the Plymouth pest control experts will ensure that you don’t have a bigger problem later in the summer. It is much easier to get rid of a few pests than it is to remove a whole colony. Don’t just assume they will go away on their own either. If you see one insect in your Plymouth home you can be sure that there will be more.
