Take a look outside, the sun is shining and the birds are chirping. It’s officially spring, and summer is closing in on us. You’re already spending more and more time outside, and your pool party invitations are rolling in. But are your home and yard prepared for warmer weather? If you’re hoping to enjoy many months hanging out in the comfort of your backyard, it’s high time to invest in a professional pest control service.
1. You want to keep your windows open
As we await the eventual heat of summer, there is a lot to appreciate in the cool breezes of spring. But before you crack open your windows to air out your house, think back on the last time your property was treated for pests. Leaving your windows open is a sure fire way to invite the outside in, even if you don't intend to. The screens in your windows might keep out large insects, but they won’t guard against small pests like fleas. Now is the time to call a pest control service and take care of those annoying bugs for good.
2. Your family is spending more time outside
Finally, after months of cold weather, it’s warming up in Central Florida and this warm weather is coaxing us all out of our homes into the great outdoors. But, the next several months don’t have to be punctuated by a series of bug swats linked together by hot sweaty days. With the help of professional pest control service, you can say goodbye to the fleas, mosquitoes, and noseeums that try to spoil your outdoor parties.
3. Your kids and pets are playing in the grass
In addition to the flying pests, you’ll want to consider the crawling pests. This time of year, as your children spend more time running around the yard in their bare feet, make sure that your yard has been properly treated for pests, including ants, fleas, and ticks. By hiring a professional to treat your lawn now you can avoid the potential bug bites from your kids and pets running around the yard.
Generally speaking, the pests in and around your home love warm weather, so you can expect to see much more of them in the coming months. From the stinging pests that threaten to ruin your backyard picnic to the rarely seen buggers that threaten the structure of your home, you better believe they are on their way back. So, instead of waiting until its too late, contact Holder Termite and Pest Control today for a free estimate by a certified pest control specialist. Enjoy spending more time outside this summer.
