01 Mar Bugs to Watch for as Spring Warms Up by AmeriPest
Spring is almost here in Southwest Missouri and Northwest Arkansas. That means green grass, blooming flowers, and more bugs. Today’s blog from AmeriPest Solutions talks about what bugs to watch for as spring warms up.
Spider eggs hatch in the spring. They come out of a round mass of webs and then spread out. If a spider laid her eggs over the winter inside your home, all the babies will scatter to various parts of your house. If there are other insects in your home, these baby spiders will find abundant food sources and spend even more time in your house.
Beetles also come out in the spring, and they look for food. They typically feast on leafy plants. If you have indoor plants, take a look for any beetles hiding underneath leaves. They might also come out of the molding around your home or from floorboards.
Bees & Wasps
Bees and wasps hunker down for the winter in their colonies. When it gets warmer and flowers bloom, these insects take to the skies and look for food. Bees and wasps might find a small entry point and take root in your home. Look for these insects in your attic, in light fixtures, and in warm, dark corners where nests can be protected.
Fleas & Ticks
Fleas and ticks become a problem when your pet brings them in from outside. Always keep an eye out for fleas and ticks on your pets, but also on clothing and bedding. Common areas to look for fleas can be under and around your bed and on your pet’s bed or resting place.
