Winnipeg Spring is almost here?
In Winnipeg, springtime can bring about a variety of pest problems that were non existent during the winter months. Some of the most common pests to watch out for during this season include:
1. Ants: As the weather warms up, ants become more active and search for food and water. They can be particularly problematic if they find their way into your home, as they can quickly multiply and become a nuisance.
2. Spiders: Many spider species become more active in spring as they escape hiding and start looking for mates. While most spiders are harmless, some species can be venomous and pose a risk to humans.
3. Flies: With the warmer weather comes an increase in fly activity. Flies can be particularly problematic if they can enter your home, as they can spread disease and contaminate food.
4. Mosquitoes: As the snow melts and standing water becomes more common, mosquitoes become more active. These pesky insects can not only be annoying, but they can also spread diseases like the West Nile virus.
5. Termites: Termites are most active during the spring, searching for new wood sources to feed on. These pests can cause significant damage to your home if left unchecked.
