Mating Season

FAIRFAX, Va. (August 28, 2013) – Many pests have a seasonal lifespan. They hatch in the spring or early summer, mature throughout the summer, and mate at the beginning of fall. Now is the time these animals and insects are searching for that special someone. It might seem like there are more of them around the neighborhood than usual, but they have just come out of hiding.

According to, it is best to leave any larger animals such as snakes alone to avoid a dangerous situation. Others, like spiders, may only make themselves known by their new webs spun across doorways, and are not cause for concern if they remain in their natural habitat outdoors.
