Common Pests Found During Spring

Here is a brief look at some of the pests that are most common during spring in the UK:

Ants

Your home and garden will most definitely be infested by this common pest this spring. It is important that you keep your eyes open to make sure that you catch them early on. This will not be difficult as ants are easy to spot. Conventional methods of pest control are often not effective once a full-blown infestation has occurred and this is why you need to keep a lookout for the early signs.

Flies

These pests are a problem that all households have to put up with. Flies start coming out when the weather starts getting warm. It is difficult to isolate this problem but it is possible to control it. Keeping your home clean and disinfected can help a lot in keeping flies away.

Cockroaches

Springtime is when cockroaches emerge. Cleaning your home regularly is one way to keep them at bay. Mop your floors regularly to clean up sticky spots as well as crumbs. You should also make sure that you clean grease away from any surface. Remember to dispose of trash regularly and correctly as well.

Snails and slugs

Your garden will also attract a lot of spring pests. The most common ones are snails and slugs. They will emerge to feed on your greens. The best way to get rid of them is to encourage predators such as toads, frogs, birds, ground-beetles, hedgehogs, etc. in a controlled manner, as they eat these pests.

There are other pests that will emerge during spring in your home as well as the outdoors.
