Understanding Weather And Pest Control

It's best for you to work with pest control all year round, so you have the best shot of keeping pests out of your home. However, should you decide to take a more lax approach, then there are certain times when it's really in your best interest to have pest control come out and spray your property and your home. You'll be able to learn more about seasonal pest control, as well as other things you need to know here: 

Early in the springtime is a good time for pest control to treat the property

When the weather starts to get warmer, the pests will begin to get more active. One of the reasons why this happens is because many pests remain dormant during the colder weather. So, when things warm up, they naturally begin to stir more, and shortly after this happens, they will go in search of food and water. They will also begin to breed around this point. As such, it is very important for you to have your property sprayed before they begin moving around and multiplying. If you don't, then those pests can quickly cause a full-blown infestation that can cause a lot of problems. By having pest control come out early in the spring, you will have fresh treatment down right in time to catch those pests as they begin to emerge. 

Rainfall won't normally cause a problem if you've just had your property treated

If your area tends to get a good amount of rainfall during the early springtime, then you may be putting off having pest control come out because you don't want to have the treatment be wasted. However, once you learn more about how pest control treatments work, you'll see that this isn't the case. 

When pest control comes out to your home, they will spray all possible dry surfaces, which often includes the exterior walls that often stay dry thanks to overhangs and rain gutters. The treatment will then bind to the surface. 

Even if it does get wet, then some of the treatment will go further in the soil and this can help to get a subterranean barrier in the yard that will help to keep pests away. This helps because the rain can soften the soil in a way that tends to bring out more pests, so having that barrier in place will get the pests that would have entered your home because of the rain.
