Spring is the time of sunshine, warming weather, and blossoming flowers. But it also draws a lot of irritating and destructive pests. Know the best preventive measures of each pest that can invade your yard or home.

Carpenter Ants

They are nuisance pest. Eliminate them by keeping dead wood, such as brush piles and tree stumps. Keep firewood well away from the house, and use insect spray to destroy foragers.


In early spring, the mosquitoes move from larval stage to maturation. After mating, males search out a flower nectar meal whilst females prefer a hemoglobin-rich snack, yeah your blood! To reduce the number of mosquitoes in your yard, eliminate the most viable environment for eggs and larva. Keep standing water away.


Wasps can be quite aggressive, especially when threatened. If you find a nest, don’t hesitate and consider hiring a professional to remove it, rather than removing it yourself.


Seal any cracks and crevices in foundations and around windows and doors. Then, use an effective insecticide around the perimeter of your home.
