Spring Is Here, The Flowers Are Blooming And The Insects Are Swarming

Now that spring is here the insects that have over wintered become active and swarm again, especially ants and termites, but they are not the only pests. Over the next few weeks you will see lots of insects making there way back into the world to join us in the beautiful days to come.

  • Moisture is a main component of the spring. Heavy rains, water from snow runoff and rising ground water levels can lead to damp basements.
  • Roof leaks, leaky skylights and water leaking around windows are all common places where carpenter ants go to nest in search of water.
  • Ground water provides moisture for termites and other crawling insects. As mentioned earlier, termites swarm in spring.
  • Carpenter bees are active, taking pollen from shrubs and plants and transporting it back to their nests – drilled, half-inch holes often found on garages and other areas around the home with an accumulation of sawdust and pollen around the hole.
