Pests tend to rise in number as the season becomes warmer. In today’s post local provider of the gutter protection system with the best gutter guard reviews, Gutter Helmet® of Cookeville, shares the most common types of pests during these seasons, and how you can protect your home from them.

1. Ants — Ants come out to forage for food, venturing greater distances further as the seasons get warmer. Rain may also drive them out of their colonies in search of higher ground. Regular cleaning can get rid of food particles that attract ants. Ants can also be repelled using homemade or off-the-shelf products, or by hiring professional pest control services.

2. Mosquitoes — Mosquitoes breed in stagnant bodies of water, from puddles to buckets left in the yard. They can also breed sight unseen in gutters, especially if there is standing water or if it’s clogged with moist leaves and debris. Getting rid of puddles in the yard, using insect screens on open windows, and keeping the gutters clean can help reduce mosquitoes on your property. Gutter protection systems like Gutter Helmet® can help keep cleaning your gutters clean and clear from mosquitoes.

3. Termites — Termites consume wood and start new colonies during spring. Homes with wood shakes and shingles are more at risk of a termite infestation. Sticking to a maintenance routine — regular inspections and resealing the wood exterior — can help repel termites. Pest control contractors also offer services that help prevent termite infestations.

4. Bed bugs — Bed bugs are a year-round problem, but their population spikes during spring and through summer. Bed bugs are so small that they can enter homes undetected through clothing, luggage, and furniture brought in. Unlike the other pests described above, bed bugs do not have nests; they live in groups in mattresses and other hidden places. Keeping the house clean, including using mattress covers and regularly vacuuming carpets, can help prevent bedbug infestation.
