Seasonal Pest Control In Conroe TX
The Conroe area maintains mild temperatures throughout the year but, we still have four seasons. As the seasons change so does pest activity. Throughout the state of Texas homes and businesses may need protection from pest activity as the area does have spring pests, fall pests, winter pests and summer pests. In this article, we will discuss how important seasonal pest control really is.
Prevention Comes With Seasonal Pest Control
Common pests like spiders and ants prefer summer months while rodents like mice and rats avoid the cold weather and move indoors becoming more of a pest problem during winter months. Then, there are pests like bed bugs that are active indoors all year long. Bed bug activity never increases or decreases due to the weather outside. Hiring a pest control company should be a proactive move in order to avoid pest infestations any time of year.

But, if your budget only allows seasonal pest control then below you will find which pests are most active during their "prime times" (or season where they are most active.)
Spring Pests In Conroe
As the flowers begin blooming stinging insects like yellow jackets and carpenter bees begin buzzing around. Pests like ants, termites and spiders start emerging from the ground where they remained inactive during the winter months. Stinging insects like bees, wasps, yellow jackets, and hornets come out of hibernation. The activity of these insects will increase as the weather warms and decrease as the temperatures cool down.
Flies begin to mature at the first sign of spring then begin swarming wherever they find a food source. Flies of all types prefer sugary foods along with anything sweetened.
Ants begin foraging for food sources in warm weather. They do this frantically as they hibernated during the cold weather. They will forage far away from their colony and usually end up inside a structure where they tend to form new colonies within the wall voids, basements or crawl spaces.
Termites begin swarming like ants in search of a new food source. Swarmers leave their old colony to start new ones.
Spiders of all types emerge from the ground or other cold weather harborage and begin hunting insects to eat.
Mosquitoes emerge from their breeding ground of stagnant water left over from the winter rains. They breed during spring to reach the height of their biting activity during the summer
Summer Pests In Conroe
Summertime in Conroe is hot increasing the activity of some insects. Pests like stinging insects and mosquitoes pose an increased risk.
Stinging pest populations are at their highest during summer months. They can mature faster while having the ability to lay more eggs than in spring.
Mosquitos will also breed faster and put people, kids and pets at a higher risk for getting bitten. Summertime storms and heavier rains leave behind more water for them to breed faster and lay more eggs.
In the full swing of summer heat, Flies will get more aggressive than during spring. They become more of a pest problem during the summer than any other season in Conroe.
Fall Pests In Conroe
Fall is the time of year when some pests begin preparing for the winter. As the nighttime temperatures cool down some pests mice, rats and cockroaches know they must begin seeking out a winter harborage. Fall pest control is probably the most important season to prevent the following pest problems.
Cockroaches are unable to survive low winter temperatures. They seek shelter inside warmer homes and garages.
Rats and Mice, like cockroaches, seek shelter from the winter extremes inside homes and businesses. They will chew through wires, insulation and other materials found in your garage, home, storage areas and closets. Rats have the ability to chew through metal so hiring a professional to prevent rats is a great idea.
Winter Pests In Conroe
Even if fall pest control is the most important treatment season for rodents and a few other pests there is no reason at all to stop there. Rodents, snakes, bed bugs and roaches may still be hiding in the dark somewhere unknown to you. Winter pest control is just as important as any other seasonal pest control treatment.
Rodents like mice and rats will hide in your walls if not caught, trapped or prevented in the fall. Cockroaches will hid in the tiniest of cracks and crevices remaining warm trying to survive the colder weather outside. Fleas, once inside will begin breeding and dropping their eggs on the floor. Carpeting and furniture are prime areas for fleas to emerge inside your home or business in Conroe.
