Insects and pests are hard at work in the spring attempting to rebuild their populations. American Pest Professionals focuses on controlling and reducing reproductive cycles. Mosquito, rodent, flea, tick and fly populations grow considerably, but here in Central Indiana, ticks, boxelder bugs, moths, cockroaches, carpenter ants and termite swarms are also prevalent.
Insects and pests that have grown their populations during the spring eat voraciously in the summer months. This is the time to treat the landscape and harborage areas that pests prefer. Stinging insects such as bees, yellow jackets, spiders and of course fleas and ticks are most active during the summer.
In the fall, pests are seeking refuge for the winter, as well as building up their reserves. Homes become desirable harborage spaces. We concentrate on building barriers around the house, as well as sealing up any possible entry points. Boxelder bugs, rodents, cluster flies, some mosquitoes and cockroaches are prevalent in the fall.
During the cold months, most insects are reserving energy to increase their chances on surviving in the spring. Other pests, like rodents, may attempt to make their way into your home to avoid the harsh outside temperatures. Pests that are most likely to invade your home in the winter months are rodents, fleas, ticks, crickets, spiders, cockroaches, winged carpenter ants, cluster flies, fruit flies and moth flies.
