Many pests and critters like to get into our Nashville homes. Some are seasonal, and some are year-round pests. Our yearly pest control covers you throughout the year, no matter what pest the season may bring. So, let’s take a look at what pests come into your home at what time of the year.
During the spring and summer months, many pests like to come inside for a cool place to forage for food, or simply make their nests in a more comfortable environment. Some of these pests include ants, wasps, flies, etc.
Ants are the most common pest that Nashvillians struggle with during spring and summer. Most ants are just a nuisance when they invade your home and yard. However, some ants can spread bacteria and some can be destructive to the wood inside and outside of your home. It is important to know what kind of ant is pestering you and your family.
Other pests that invade Nashville homes during the spring and summer are wasps. Wasp infestations can typically be found in the rooflines of your home, in sheds/garages, barns, etc. They come out mostly during the spring and summer, but their nests grow all year long. Other pests that are similar to wasps are yellow jackets. They make their nests in the ground and come out to surprise us while we mow our lawns, or play outside. They are pretty sneaky. Some stinging insects will not bother us but will eat on the wood from our homes. These pests are carpenter bees.
Other pests come out around this time of year that makes us feel as though they came out of nowhere. A list of these kinds of pests include earwigs, silverfish, crickets, centipedes, millipedes, etc.
As we come out of the spring and summer months and go into the fall and winter pests, we see some other insects that come out of hiding. These certain pests include Asian lady beetles, stink bugs, boxelder bugs, rodents, spiders, etc. When these winter insects come and invade your home, spiders follow. This is why you notice more spider webs in your home in the wintertime than in the summer. If there is a small hole or gap around your home and a rodent feels the heat seeping out, the rodent can come inside to escape from the cooler weather outside.
