As the weather warms up, it is important to be aware of the common pests that can infest your home. Here are some of the most common spring pests in Boston and how you can protect your family from them with B&B Pest Control.
Cockroaches – Cockroaches are one of the most common pests throughout Massachusetts, but they are especially prevalent in Boston during springtime. Homeowners should be wary of these pests as they can spread disease and contaminate food sources. To prevent cockroach infestations, it is important to keep food sealed in airtight containers and maintain a clean living space. Additionally, regular pest control treatments will help keep cockroaches away from your home.
Ants – Ants are another common pest in Boston during springtime. These small insects are drawn to damp areas like bathrooms and kitchens and can quickly become a nuisance. To prevent ant infestations, it is important to eliminate any entry points into your home such as cracks or crevices that may lead outside. Additionally, homeowners should maintain a clean living space by wiping up spills immediately and keeping surfaces free of crumbs or other debris that may attract ants. Regular pest control treatments will also help keep ants away from your home.
Ticks – Ticks can be found year-round but become more active during warmer weather when they come out of hibernation seeking hosts for their larvae. To protect your family from ticks, it is important to check yourself for ticks after spending time outdoors and wearing protective clothing such as long sleeves and pants when possible. Additionally, regular pest control treatments will help reduce the risk of tick exposure in your home.
Pests can quickly become a nuisance around your home if not addressed promptly and properly. It is important to recognize the signs of an infestation early on so that you can take action before the problem gets worse.
