Warmer Weather Increases the Likelihood of Pest Infestations


The weather is starting to warm up a little, and many homeowners are looking forward to the spring and summer climate. Now that people are venturing out for a variety of outdoor activities, there is a risk that you might have other things moving inside: insects. The warmer weather is a factor that increases the activity of ants and other insects, which means that you need to be proactive with your strategies for pest infestations. Talk to us at EcoGeek to learn more about the ways that we can help.

Why are Ants Coming into Your Home?

The change in weather is a sure indication of the risk of pest infestations and related issues. Instead of waiting for the insects to show up in your home, it is better to be proactive by reducing the factors that attract pests.

Usually, ants will come into a home because they are looking for food sources. Sometimes, the infestation starts in the yard, due to leftover crumbs from a backyard party or BBQ. Then, the ants will continue looking for food sources and might find small gaps where they can get into the kitchen.

Ants work in colonies, which means that you never have just a handful of bugs to eliminate. You might be able to kill a few of the visible insects, but more will follow. Not only do you need to eliminate the food sources, but you also need to talk to a pest control service about methods to keep the colony away from your home.

Preventive Measures and Proactive Pest Control

Ants are seeking any type of food source, especially sweets and protein. As you are preparing and eating food in your home, you need to be proactive to prevent an infestation. Here are a few tips that can help:   

• Clean up spill and crumbs right away         

• Keep the garbage in sealed bins         

• Take out the garbage daily         

• Store leftover food in sealed containers         

• Seal gaps or holes where the insects might come into your home

Consider the benefits of calling an eco-friendly pest control service for personalized recommendations. We can inspect your home to identify any weak points that could be entry points for ants or any other type of insect. Then, we will help you eliminate the pest infestations.
