Anyone who lives in California knows that there are a good number of pests out and about regardless of the season. However, now that spring will be here in a little less than a week, you might notice that the frequency with which you have encounters with these pests will start to become even more common. If you are curious which pests most commonly infiltrate the Sacramento area during the spring, we would suggest you continue reading below. You can know what you should keep an eye out for in your home in order to prevent any pest infestation from occurring.
If you have lived in California for a while, the chances are that you have encountered a cockroach or two before. The most common types of cockroaches that we see are American and German cockroaches. These little buggers are able to squeeze through extremely small openings when they are searching for food and water. While it might seem like cockroaches would be easy to spot, the truth is that most people do not know they have roaches in their home until the situation has turned into a full-blown infestation.
It is very rare that an ant will travel by itself. This is why you so often find that where there is one ant, there is a colony of ants. On the other hand, household ants are often pretty difficult to identify. A professional, on the other hand, can identify what sort of ants you have by their size, activity time, and color. The most common types of ants that will take over your home in the spring are carpenter ants, pharaoh ants, and fire ants.
Mosquitoes are the most common pests people all over the country cannot stand. Apart from infesting outdoor areas where you would like to be spending your time, they also leave you with painful itching spots on your skin. Plain and simple, mosquitos love hot and humid weather, making Sacramento the perfect environment for them to reside. If you want to avoid being bitten until you are able to get a pest control team to your house, try filling a large bucket full of water and sugar. The sugar water will act as a deterrent to the mosquitoes to that won’t be as focused on biting you and instead will go spend their time by the water.
While termites are known to do their dirty work throughout the year, you might begin to notice any signs of these pests once the weather starts to warm up. Pay attention to the wood in your home for clues that you might be dealing with a termite problem. You can find out whether your home is attracting termites in this helpful post as well.
