It’s not just the warmer temperatures of springtime that stimulate an increase in pest activity. The photoperiod, or length of day, is another trigger that prompts more pests into action even when the weather remains cold. A third factor involves something we can control – to a degree. All those bugs need moisture to survive and to reproduce. We can’t stop it from raining, but we can make sure the grounds around our homes don’t stay soggy for days. Rake up and remove leaf litter from around your foundation. Check gutters to make sure they are not clogged. And call Bug Zero to take care of the rest of your pests.
