Rain Making Way For Interesting Home Inspections & Pest Control Needs
Have you wondered why there are still so many pesky bugs still active at this time of the year? Our pest control and home inspections OKC team knows that during warm spring and summer months the ants, flies, wasps, spiders, and other creepy bugs have something in common; they need time to reproduce! The reason you usually start to see more pests in warmer months is because they’ve had more time to lay enough eggs and potentially produce thousands of babies. With Oklahoma’s crazy weather this year ranging from wet, damp, rainy days all the way to the extremely and unusually warm days in between it’s no wonder the fluctuating temperatures made the perfect “storm” for incubating a staggering amount of reproduction for various insect species.
Did you know it only takes one burst of wet weather, for example, to create a breeding ground for flies? The astonishing part is that flies have the capability of laying up to 900 eggs! The offspring can then hang around for nearly a month afterwards. Annoying, right? If you’ve seen an increase in flies around your home in the last few weeks, it could be a result of rainy days all the way back from the beginning of August. On the other hand, many bugs start to make their way out of their resting places when temperatures become more stable and when weeds, flowers, and grass are still alive to help the insects have places to hide and feast.
This is why after the rainy month of August, the many bugs that usually are gone by early September have stuck around. With that being said, our home inspections OKC team have a little more to look our for when we look at a home for a customer as we have to watch for standing water or places that promote even more breeding of insects. That also means that our pest control side of the business is still in full action!
As we continue to stay relatively busy this season to ward off the bugs of the last season, we’re also going to be preparing our customers for the fall. If you’re in need of assistance with checking out a home you might want to purchase, please schedule your appointment with our home inspections OKC team as soon as possible to secure a spot.
Our pest control and home inspections OKC team will be serving the OKC metro area and we’d love to add your home to our list of stops to help keep your yard protected.
