You’re not the only one who can’t wait to get out and enjoy the spring weather. Spring pests are also jumping at the opportunity to enjoy the warmth, coming out of hibernation and creating NJ pest control nightmares. Luckily, you can prevent warm weather pest problems with early identification. What are the top spring pests to be on the lookout for?

Carpenter Ants

Insects such as carpenter ants seek food and shelter when weather warms, infiltrating and destroying the structure of your home. Piles of wood shavings beneath holes and rustling sounds within walls indicate an infestation.

Termites

Termites swarm and reproduce in the spring. They can cause a lot of damage in a short time, munching on your home or business. Swarmers, piles of wings, mounds, mud tubes on exterior walls, and crumbling wood should be an immediate concern.

Mosquitoes

Mosquito bites aren’t just irritating, they can make you and your pets very sick. Combat them and reclaim your yard with mosquito treatments.

Spiders

Spring season is spider season, and although most are harmless, poisonous and potentially deadly brown recluse and black widows require immediate attention.

Rats

Rats can transmit a number of diseases and pose a serious health threat. Close holes and gaps larger than a quarter quickly and seek timely treatment.
