Maine Bed Begs and Pest Control is ramping up for another busy season as spring cleaning turns into several finding unwanted pests in Gray, ME

March 30, 2013

Dale Carson of Maine Bed Bugs and Pest Control can tell you that spring time is a very busy part of the year for Gray, Maine exterminators. From bed bugs to spiders and flies to hornets nests, people are going to be finding all sorts of insects, rodents, and other pests that escaped into the house or shed during the colder winter months and are now starting to become active. There are several signs homeowners can look out for to know whether they are dealing with an infestation or just a random fly or bug wandering through their homes.

One of the key things to look for is trails. If homeowners are seeing lines of insects traveling through or around the outside of the home, they are most likely near a nest. Also, individuals should keep an eye out for flying ants during the early spring months. This is often when ants are selecting a new area for their colony and those ants will typically lose those wings once they have relocated. So, if one sees ants flying around their home or gathered dead inside screens, windows, or sliding doors, there is a good chance the ants are in the home. Often ants, spiders, and other pests will make nests in basements, behind walls, in cabinets and rarely used closets. Insects and rodents want some place that is relatively undisturbed, cool, and dark. If the home are leaking pipes or water damage, those areas are prime real estate for bugs of all sorts as well.

It is important for homeowners to keep this in mind as they go forward with their spring cleaning tasks. Finding a trail, animal droppings, or other signs of pest habitation can be a sign of real trouble and should not just be assumed that the pests will leave on their own or have already left. Specialists in pest control in Maine see the damage that these bugs and rodents can do in a home. This can run anywhere from bringing in germs and bacteria that can cause health issues to chewing on wires, biting, and other concerns.

If someone thinks that they may have an insect or rodent problem, calling on professional pest control in Maine is the best response. In trying to get rid of the pests on their own, many homeowners expose themselves to danger either from a poisonous bite or from the chemicals they choose to use to deal with the critters. An exterminator can come and fully inspect the home for any potential problems and advise what the best course of action is.
