Spring time brings warmer weather and longer days which are both welcomed by most people as it means a time to begin spending more of the day outdoors with family while engaging in fun recreational activities. Spring is a great time to attend a baseball game, spend a day at the park or enjoy a leisurely walk with your dog. The flowers begin to blossom and the smell of spring is a wonderful reminder of how wonderful this time of year can be. However, with the good always come the bad, and the bad this spring is a new surge of insects that will be sure to annoy and potentially cause some health effects and damage to your property.
A Five Star Termite & Pest Control is ready to help keep these insects and pests away from your Greater San Antonio TX home!
Be on the Lookout for African Killer Bee Attacks
Killer bees have become a serious threat in warmer areas like Texas. Besides being extremely aggressive, killer bees often attack with an element of surprise from a hive hidden in a rotting log, behind a wall or even underground. Unfortunately most people cannot discern an irritated bee from a pleasant bee, so it is best to steer clear of bees all together. If you notice a beehive near your home or on your property, contact A Five Star Termite & Pest Control today to have it safely removed.
Mosquitoes Spread Dangerous Diseases Like the Zika Virus
Mosquitoes are quite possible the most annoying insect that humans come into contact with. Spring time can send mosquitoes into a frenzy with warm weather and regular rainfall that creates still standing water for mosquitoes to thrive on. Still standing water provides the perfect environment for mosquitoes to breed and they breed quickly. Not only are mosquito bites irritating, but they are also extremely dangerous and mosquitoes are responsible for spreading dangerous diseases directly to humans. No doubt you have heard about the Zika Virus which is expected to spread rapidly in the Gulf States, especially after Spring break! A Five Star Termite & Pest Control technician will come to your home and make sure that mosquitoes stay away.
Red Important Fire Ant Identification & Bites
Fire ants are quite possibly the most aggressive insect alive. This species of ant will attack anyone or anything that comes too close to their nest and they will attack in large numbers. Not only will fire ants attack if they feel their nest is being threatened, but they have also been known to attack for no good reason. When fire ants attack they will sink their fangs into their victim’s skin and repeatedly administer painful, blistering stings in a circular pattern. Fire ants move very quickly so it is important to be vigilant of any fire ants that may be on your property.
