Housing starts are up, new construction is on the rise. The onset of warmer March temperatures brings an unwelcome invader: The paper wasp queen, searching for a spot to settle and start building a nest to raise her colony for the summer.
Just as spring signifies new beginnings for us, it means rejuvenation in the insect world as well. A key part of the life cycle for most insects happens in spring, and this season can set the stage for their activity the rest of the year.
Now is the best time of year to provide food for wild birds, because their natural seed sources are depleted. As you think about feeding your feathered friends, make sure their backup birdseed is free from pest damage.
Today is National Love Your Pet Day... as if we needed a special day to spoil our beloved pets! Since animals can be bothered by pest insects as much as humans are, many of our employees use our products to keep their furry friends safe.
