April showers bring May flowers…and pests! It’s that time of year—time to safeguard your home from springtime infestations. Termites, ants and mosquitos are obviously most active in the spring and summer months, and you definitely don’t want any of them “bugging” you in your own home. The professionals at Clark Exterminating can help you reclaim your home and yard, and keep the insects out for good!
When the weather is warm, the termites will swarm—especially after a springtime shower. If you notice a swarm in or around your home, the nesting area can’t be far. If you suspect termites, it’s important to take action right away to prevent serious damage to your home. They quietly cost property owners billions of dollars in damage every year by eating through wooden structures, to the point that some buildings are unlivable until repairs are made.
Each spring, ants march into homes in search of shelter. You may notice that a lot of ants come inside the window to escape the rain, while others crawl through the cracks found near the bottom of your doors. They also prefer to gather in areas where food crumbs, pet food or sweet drinks are present, so make sure that your countertops and tables stay clean, and you put food away immediately after eating.
We’re very familiar with mosquitos here in Arkansas, and we all know how irritating an arm full of itchy mosquito bites can be. Mosquitos carry a variety of diseases, some are even dangerous. They can ruin a fun family barbecue or birthday party within minutes. It’s important to keep an eye out for standing water, as those areas are prone to becoming breeding grounds for these bloodsuckers.
A variety of pests come out of hiding in the spring months, but the experienced team at Clark Exterminating can get rid of the problem for you— with no stress on your end. Contact us today, and learn how we can help you take back your living space and enjoy the warmer weather in peace.
