Just like the seasons change throughout the year, so do the pests. But there is one common factor irrespective of the season. Pests are an annoyance at any given time of the year. As a new season rolls in and a new weather pattern hits, you will have to deal with different kinds of pests.

While some pests prefer warmer weather, there are a few species of pests that will surge in the winter. This blog sheds light on seasonal pests that will help you to arm yourself with knowledge so that you can fortify your home against these pesky seasonal invaders.

Spring

Spring is here, and so are the annoying pests who break from their long hibernation period looking for food, lodging, and breeding ground. As the temperatures rise during spring, pests come out from their winter hiding places and become more active. Moreover, spring is also mating season for many species. Some common spring pests to look out for are:

  • Ants
  • Termites
  • Spiders
  • Mosquitos
  • Flies
  • Stinging Insects
  • Earwigs

Summer

Summer is peak-time for insects as warmer weather is perfect for pests to prosper. Even though insects bother the most during summer, some pests also create a lot of nuisance and are difficult to deal with. The most prominent summer pests to watch out for are:

  • Stinging Insects
  • Ants
  • Flies
  • Ticks
  • Termites
  • Mosquitos

Fall

The new batch of seasonal pests arrives with the fall season. As the greenery begins to fade and the temperature begins to cool, pests start to prepare for winter hibernation by searching for a warm cozy shelter inside your home to spend the entire winter season. Moreover, the fall decorations are favorite hotspots for these uninvited houseguests to hide and nest. Here are some common fall pests. To prepare for the fall, look out for the following pests:

  • Spiders
  • Rodents
  • Fleas
  • Ladybugs
  • Stinkbugs

Winter

Winter may look like a haven from pests, but don’t relax just yet! When it is cold outside, many invaders are still looking for places to avoid the harsh cold weather and keep warm. Here are some common winter pests to prepare for:

  • Rodents
  • Roaches
  • Ladybugs
  • Stink bugs
  • Silverfish

Wrapping Up

To conclude, the blog has made it obvious that pests aren’t just a problem during any specific season; they are always around throughout the year, only their types are different. Since there are different kinds of pests for different seasons, no single pest control formula will work on everyone. The best way to stay protected from pests is pest prevention.
