MOISTURE AND STANDING WATER
Heavy rain can lead to areas of standing water near your home. Too much rain can overload gutters, causing possible damage to your home’s exterior and foundation. Heavy rain can result in flooding, causing standing water.
Standing water after long rain periods is common. Standing water attracts pests; depending on how close the standing water is to your house, they may end up inside your home.
Mosquitoes do not go into a true dormant state in winter. Instead, they enter a state of slowed metabolism during cooler months. As the weather gets warmer and there is an increase of moisture in the air, it creates a comfortable environment for mosquitoes. Standing water is a prime spot for mosquitoes to breed. An adult female mosquito can lay up to 400 eggs at one time. If you have any standing water near your home, that can mean a lot of mosquitoes.
The rainfall from April showers is a much-needed water source for termites. After a decent rain, it is not unusual to see flying termites or “swarmers”. Swarmers emerge from the ground to seek out mates to start new termite colonies. Flying termites are unwelcome guests for any homeowner.
If you happen to see flying termites around your home and you are concerned that you may have termites inside your home – Eco Advantage Termite and Pest Solutions can rid your home of these pests.
The soil is a habitat for many insects and when it rains the water pushes them out of their homes. When this happens these insects may seek shelter within your house. When you experience periods of lots of rain, you may see increases in beetles, ants, and roaches. It is important to keep up with a regular pest control schedule to make sure your home is under control.
