April Is National Pest Management Month

Mark your calendars! April is National Pest Management Month.

Did you know that every April is National Pest Management Month? What this means is that we, in conjunction with the National Pest Management Association, will be raising awareness of the hard work of our CO pest control professionals and also sharing ways in which you can prevent pests from being a threat to you, your family and your home.

What can I do for National Pest Management Month?

If you have not already signed up for year round pest control services to safeguard your home from the threat of pests, now is the time to do so! For those in the Denver and Boulder, Colorado areas, ask us about HomeSmart Pest™ Prevention Program. It’s better to have quarterly preventative treatments than waiting for a pest to become a problem and spread illness or cause damages to the home.

Another thing that you can do this month is to dive whole-heartedly into spring-cleaning! This is the time of year when overwintering pests are waking up and becoming active and it is also the time of the year when spring pests are becoming a problem in homes across Colorado. So in addition to your year round pest control services, make sure to follow our indoor and outdoor spring cleaning tips to discourage insects and rodents.

What pests should I be watching out for in April?

While there are many pests that are a year round problem, there are a few that we want Colorado homeowners to be keeping a close eye on this month and throughout the spring season:

Ants - Foraging for food in the kitchen, nests forming around the property

Spiders - Webs appearing in the basement or closets of the home

Mice - Mouse droppings in cupboards and food pantries; gnaw marks on wood, trim and drywall

Termites - Termite swarms, discarded wings of swarmers, mud tubes on the property

If you are concerned about the arrival of spring pests, or if you would just like to be sure that you are staying alert and proactive against spring pests, please give us a call at EnviroPest by Sprague Pest Solutions. We are happy partner with you to provide Denver pest control (or pest control in Boulder or throughout our Colorado service area) now and throughout the entire year.
