Pest-Proof The Home This SpringJanay Rickwalder
Wednesday, March 20, 2013
Spring is finally here, which means many homeowners will embark
cleaning projects over the next few weeks. During this time,
the National Pest Management Association also encourages homeowners
to take stock of the conditions in and around homes and eliminate
any possible entryways or items that attract pests.
Spring is the season when homeowners begin to notice an increase
in pests, including ants, termites, and stinging insects,
because the warmer temperatures encourage greater activity. Many of
these pests can move indoors without leaving many visible warning
signs of an infestation.
Simple tasks like screening windows, properly landscaping,
eliminating moisture sites and keeping kitchens clean can go a long
way in minimizing a potential pest problem this spring.
