Nashville, Tenn. (PRWEB) March 22, 2013
During the winter months, most insects are typically inactive. As spring approaches and temperatures increase, insects become more active while they search for food and reproduce. The non-profit organization NPMA suggests preparing homes to fight back insect invasion as part of a homeowner’s spring cleaning efforts.
Erica Brister, President of Middle Tennessee pest control company U.S. Pest, warned that wet and mild weather present the perfect breeding ground for insects. “Though we saw a colder winter this year, an increase in precipitation along with warmer weather will always lead to more bugs,” she said. “Termites swarms are especially a nuisance around this time of the year here in Tennessee and can cause expensive damage to a home or structure.”
Though it can be difficult to predict what the warmer seasons will bring, experts state it is never too soon to take steps to prevent an infestation. Along with the NPMA, the pest control specialists at U.S. Pest agree that it is better to prepare a home for the changes in insect behavior before it becomes a problem.
“Once you notice an infestation, a lot of the damage is already done and it is that much harder to control,” Brister added. “It is best to take steps to keep bugs and pests out of the house before they begin to reproduce and make your home their own.”
The National Pest Management Association (NPMA), a non-profit organization with more than 7,000 members from around the world, was established in 1933 to support the pest management industry's commitment to the protection of public health, food and property.
For more than 27 years, U.S. Pest has proudly serviced over 15,000 homes around Middle Tennessee and is rated the number one pest and termite company in Tennessee. They offer a wide range of pest control services for homes and commercial properties.
