Spring Thaw, Carpenter Ants on the Rise

As many of you have noticed, the snow is melting away, and everything is very muddy, and very wet. As exciting as it is to see the light at the end of the tunnel from what we all call winter, all that moisture could cause some serious issues for your home.

For instance, Carpenter Ants absolutely love moist and rotting wood. Not to say they don’t like to chew on some new hard wood, but the moisture makes their job a little easier. Once you have just a few of these guys running around your home, the infestation is soon to follow.

Another issue all this moisture presents is mold. Mold is no good, who wants that in their home? Mold causes severe respiratory issues, including asthma in both children and adults. In some cases it can even be deadly.

Silverfish, millipedes, and centipedes are all lovers of moist and humid areas. While silverfish don’t normally bite humans, they can be a severe nuisance in your home. These guys chew through fabric, including clothing, and drapes on your windows.
