It goes with how much pest infestation you have if you see cockroaches and mice wandering around your home, you should call a pest control exterminator right away. But if your desires to control pest even before they approach inside your home.
You can always go for general pest control. Pest increases with the temperature warming up. As spring comes spiders, ants and flies start invading your home quietly. You can maintain them by spraying pesticides.
But the question arises when is the right time to use pest control. Will it be good with spraying in spring or wait until summer?
Best season for Pest Control
Although there might be not any perfect time then call pest control as soon you observe the pest around the house. But still, the best time to do pest control is in early spring. By using spraying in spring, it will terminate the nest and colonies of pests.
When treatment has less to do it will last the effect of the treatment even longer. If you wait until the abundance of pests then pest exterminate needs to do more work as well treatment needs to do more work that will make palliate the treatment effect time.
During the spring household pests are weakest. At this time of year insects and rodents come out of dormancy and become more active. After the cold summer pest wanders around in search of food and invades your house for the same.
It comes true especially when it comes to ants, spiders, cluster flies, and bees. These insects have a very low tolerance level. Because of this half of the population of these little troublemakers dies in some areas during the winter season.
Winter gives the preparation time for these little invaders; don’t think of it as knock-off time. Otherwise, it will make you face the worst infestation in some cases. Professional who uses advanced IPM techniques suggests sealing off all the entry points for these invaders during spring or early spring.
During early spring or winter moisture, heat, and light will not come in the way as barriers. This is the struggling point during summer.
