Spring has finally arrived, and there’s a lot to look forward to. Warm weather means outdoor events, cookouts, and other spring and summer plans. But it is also the start of insect season. You will see an increase in flying and crawling insects and creatures like rodents aren’t going away. Most insects are dormant during the winter, but now that winter’s over, you need to be ready. Arrow Exterminating knows we have to share the world with insects, but we also have made it our mission to keep insects and other pests away from our clients’ homes and businesses.

Protecting Your Property From Pests
Insects and other pests outnumber us, but a little thought and some preparation will keep them out of your home this spring. The facilities management website Buildings.com, suggests walking your home or building and checking all the points of entry. Make sure that any crack or hole that can serve as an entryway for pests is sealed. Check any screen doors and windows you might have. If they have holes in them, they can allow insects or other creatures to get inside. It’s also critical to make certain that the interior of your building or home is sanitized. Pay particular attention to areas where food and beverages are consumed.
But it’s not just the interior of your home that needs to be examined in the spring. Your grounds can contribute to an infestation as well. Accuweather suggests that you prune any trees and shrubbery that are near your home because insects can use them as a launching point to enter your home. For example, if you have shrubbery too close to a vent, insects can gain entrance through the vent. You also need to be careful with mulch. When mulch deteriorates, it can attract insects. Another thing to check is your sprinkler system. Standing water can attract mosquitoes. Leaving outdoor lights on at night can attract flying insects that can get inside your door.
