Rose Pest Solutions Offers Effective Pest Control in Spring

Common Pests

Our pest control experts provide quality services to keep your home bug-free in the spring. With temperatures rising and the sun shining, pests emerge from their winter hibernation to return to our yards and homes. Enjoy the spring season, not the pests! Our professionals will identify pest entry points and take the necessary steps to protect your property. We’ll prepare your home to proactively combat pests and keep them out of your living spaces by providing a thorough inspection, evaluation, and treatment.

Prevent Kitchen Pests in Spring

If you’re tired of dealing with kitchen pests in spring, like ants, pantry moths, or flies, our pest professionals are here to help. Keeping your kitchen clean will help you avoid attracting pests but may not keep them out completely. Bugs and insects are drawn to homes for food, water, and shelter. Even if your kitchen is spotless, some bugs may come crawling inside for water. That’s why our spring pest control services are an essential step to prevent bugs and other pests from entering your home. The most common pests in spring include the following:

  • Ants
  • Mosquitoes
  • Termites
  • Spiders
  • House flies
  • Earwigs
  • Bees
  • Wasps
  • Boxelder bugs
  • Stink bugs
  • Asian beetles

Dealing With Ants

Ants are one of the most common pests in the Midwest. With the warm weather of spring, ants forage and scout out new locations. Some types of ants can cause severe damage to your home. Carpenter ants will create tunnels through wood beams and other structures. They have also been known to create colonies inside walls and will travel far from their nests to find food. Carpenter ants can enter your home through the piping, foundation, attic vents, telephone lines, electrical wires, or cracks. Our experts can prevent ant infestations and keep these insects out of your home.

Managing Mosquitoes

Mosquitoes are more than just a nuisance. Mosquitos are known carriers of some serious diseases. Mosquito activity rises in the spring and can last well into October. Spring is the perfect time to combat these pests with professional mosquito treatments. Our treatments are customized to your property to provide the most effective results. To help keep mosquitoes away, get rid of yard debris, trim lawn and shrubs, and remove all sources of standing water in and around your property.

Terminating Termites

Termites thrive in the spring and begin their swarming season, searching for the perfect place to establish a new colony. The last place you want that colony to be is in the walls of your home. Our preventative Sentricon system will protect your property from termites this spring. These wood-eating insects have large appetites and like to swarm after the spring rain. Termites can cause a lot of damage in a short amount of time. Our team can identify the presence of termites and take steps to keep them out of your home. Signs that termites are in your home include:

  • Cracked paint on wooden surfaces
  • Crumbling wood
  • Discarded wings
  • Mud tubes on exterior walls
  • Sagging floors or ceilings
  • Wood that sounds hollow

Stopping Spring Spiders

It’s common to find spiders in basements, garages, attics, and porches. Spiders often indicate a more significant problem since they come into your home to prey on other insects. Spiders help control the insect population, but you may not want them in your home. Spring is an active time for spiders. Often, they get into homes through cracks in windows and doors. They can also be introduced to your home through a box or package brought indoors. The best way to keep spiders out is to seal cracks and crevices around the outside of your home where spiders might be able to enter. Our quarterly prevention program includes de-webbing on the outside of your home to maintain a spider-free zone.

Keeping Out House Flies, Bees, and Wasps

Unfortunately, opening the windows and doors to let in the fresh spring air invites the pests inside. Pesky insects like houseflies, bees, and wasps can wander inside your home. Spring is a busy time for bees as they pollinate spring trees and flowers. Bees forage in the spring and develop new colonies. While bees are good for your garden, you don’t want them starting a colony in your home. If you don’t want to keep your windows closed all the time, install window screens to keep flying insects from coming inside. Our services also provide treatment to keep bees and other flying insects from nesting in your home.
