How Early in the Spring Should I Start My Pest Control Plan

You have probably learned that spring is the best time to invest in home pest control.  However, you may still be wondering just how early you need to schedule your appointment and put your pest control plan in place. Here is everything you need to know. 

As the temperatures begin to rise after winter, pests that have been dormant will come back to life. These pests will be on a mission to find food and water and add to their population. That makes spring the best time to tackle pests.

Since pests haven’t had the chance to procreate yet, their numbers will be smaller and more manageable. It won’t be as difficult to treat infestations and you can protect your home and your landscape from insect damage. 

Usually, the weather starts to shift significantly in late February and early March. This is the ideal time to have a pest control expert visit your home and apply the right treatments. Your pest control plan should take into account the different types of pests in your area and the pests’ life cycle to make sure that they are effectively eliminated. 

It is also a good idea to use your appointment to talk with your pest control expert about an ongoing plan. They may recommend more frequent visits so that you can comfortably enjoy your landscape during the summer months. If you have an existing infestation, it may take more than one visit to address the problem.
