Spring has arrived and with it comes pesky pests that can put your entire household at risk. Among the annoying insects that invade homes are ants. The warm weather prompts ants to explore your kitchen to rummage for food.

Get hold of ant control products. Here at Parsons Pest Control, we offer effective yet inexpensive ant control products.

Aside from ants, you should also prepare yourself for mosquito infestation. Although mosquitoes are abundant in summer, they are beginning to resurface in early spring. During this time, the mosquitoes move from larval stage to maturation quickly. Mosquitoes carry diseases so you should deal with them at the first sign of infestation.

Remove standing water in your backyard as standing water is a breeding ground for these critters. If mosquito infestation is getting out of control, call a pest control technician immediately.

There are also dust mites and other bugs to consider. Keep your home’s humidity level between 40% and 50% as this will decrease mite growth.

Move your furniture occasionally so you can vacuum your home interior thoroughly. It also helps to use carpet sealants as these may reduce the chance of your carpet developing mildew and mold. You should also prevent dirt from entering your home by using a bristly doormat.

Don’t forget to mow the lawn and trim the hedges so rodents won’t stay in your backyard. You should also seal the holes and cracks in your house so rodents can’t enter.

Spring is a wonderful season. But you’re not the only one who enjoys spring, insects and other critters that can harm your household also love to explore their surroundings at this time of the year. To prevent the infestation of these pests in your home this spring, make sure to keep your house clean.
