Memorial Day Weekend is nearly here and will kick off the start of Summer. But before you start your summer activities, now is a good time to take some simple precautions to minimize the summer pest problems that are sure to arrive!
Mosquitoes are on the Way!
Spring and rain go hand in hand. And while the Spring rain is good for our plants and landscaping, that rain also presents some future problems as it relates to mosquitoes. We’re interested in preventing mosquitoes.
To prevent mosquitoes in your yard this year, the first line of defense is to eliminate any standing water that remains after periods of rain. Standing water provides opportunities for mosquitoes to breed. In fact, standing water may even cause previously dormant mosquito eggs to hatch!
Don’t Let Termites Ruin Your Home
Spring is usually welcomed with open arms, but warmer temperatures also stir unwanted pests, and termites, into activity. It’s not uncommon for a termite infestation to show up in the weeks following cold winter temperatures. And preventing termites from invading your home is what SWAT Services is all about. SWAT wants you and your family to be well informed about these destructive pests so they don’t start forming colonies in or around your home and end up costing you money.
Termites Are a Costly Problem
Every year termites combine to cause over 5 billion dollars of damage. Unfortunately, termite damage is not a claim that is typically covered by your homeowners insurance policy. Yet, damage from termites is five times more likely to occur to your home than damage from fire!
