Spring pests are pesky and vexing. They cause expensive and extensive destruction in your home. Arizona has many pests, such as ants, cockroaches, spiders, scorpions, etc. The best way to remain spring pest free is to have certain things on your to-do list. Here are those things to help you prepare for spring pests in Arizona.
Prepping for Spring Pests
Start cleaning indoors.
A few months to the end of summer is the best time to declutter closets, cabinets, and other hidden corners that are pest welcoming. Use your weekend or free time to thoroughly clean spider webs, dust mites, and other insects to avoid pests from entering your home this spring.
Clean outside your home.
The rising temperature is a good time to clean outside the home. Pests make the pile of leaves and bushes their homes in the cold weather. Furthermore, inspect your surroundings and dispose of water pools in flower pots, bird feeders, etc. These areas are homes to scorpions, mosquitoes, and other insects that will infiltrate your home during the spring. To be more secure, use a blacklight to walk your surroundings at night. The light helps make scorpions and other insects visible at night. In addition, you can locate their nesting site to prevent continuous appearance.
Check for holes and tears
Holes and tears are popular in homes with kids or pets. You may find a punctured window screen, wall, or door crack. The summer freezing prevents pests from entering your home but stops during the spring. In essence, double-check these areas and ensure you block any suspicious places before the summer ends.
However, if you can’t fix the punctured screens, holes, or tears by yourself, you can call the professionals to do the fixing. Once the holes, tears, and screens are good before the spring, you can invite an inspection team to finalize the work by adding an additional layer to keep spring pests out.
Lastly, pest control companies are the best option. These companies have training in dealing with pests of all kinds. They use rare insecticides inside and outside the home to kill pests. However, the process does not happen after the first visit. It requires several visits to your property to prevent future infestation. In addition, these experts have the skills and experience to keep different pesky pests at bay during any season. They are ready to start work when needed and are available in every region in Arizona.
Getting rid of spring pests requires a complete process of extermination. The spring’s hot weather allows insects to scavenge for food in your home. The scavenging can turn into an infestation. The infestation can cause damage worth thousands of dollars in repairs. In addition, they can cause health problems for families with extended symptoms in kids. The best way to remain safe is to carry out some preventive measures, like those listed in this article before summer ends.
