Spring is here, and with it come the pests! As the weather starts to warm up, insects and other creepy crawlies come out of hiding and start looking for a new home. While it's natural to feel a little creeped out by these pests, there are steps you can take to prevent them from taking up residence in your home.

Here in North Idaho and the Spokane Washington area, we have a few pests that are especially active during the spring months. Ants, spiders, and beetles are just a few of the bugs that you may encounter as you start spending more time outside.

But don't worry, there are steps you can take to keep these pests at bay. One of the most important things you can do is to keep your home clean and tidy. This means making sure that you don't leave any food or crumbs lying around, and that you take the trash out regularly. It's also important to keep your home well-sealed, so that bugs can't find their way inside. This can be as simple as fixing any cracks or gaps in your doors and windows, or using a door sweep to keep insects out.

Another way to keep pests at bay is to make sure that you don't have any standing water around your home. Mosquitoes and other pests are attracted to standing water, so make sure to empty any birdbaths, kiddie pools, or other sources of standing water.

If you do find pests inside your home, there are a few things you can do to get rid of them. You can use a vacuum cleaner to suck up any insects you see, or you can use an insecticide spray to kill them. However, it's always a good idea to read the label carefully and follow the instructions carefully, as some insecticides can be dangerous if not used correctly.

Finally, if you're having trouble with pests in your home, it's always a good idea to call in a professional. A pest control expert can help you identify the pests in your home, and will know the best ways to get rid of them. They'll also be able to give you advice on how to keep pests from coming back in the future.

So there you have it! By keeping your home clean and tidy, making sure you don't have any standing water around, and using insecticides or calling in a professional if necessary, you can keep pests at bay this spring. Happy bug-busting!
