Well spring has definitely sprung and we are booming with business. I love this time of the year. As a result of the mild winter we had in Houston, the termite swarmers are exploding everywhere. We are getting reports that people are seeing swarmers flying everywhere. If you haven’t had your house checked yet this year, don’t wait. Do it now.
We are also starting to see the flea population pick up. Fleas like to hang out on top of the soil and under rocks and in the mulch. They are constantly dropping their eggs and as people or animals starting walking around the vibrations cause the eggs to hatch with hungry fleas. Now is the time to get your yard treated with both a granule application as well as the liquid application.
If this spring is any indication I what’s to come this summer, it’s going to be a very buggy summer in Houston. In the pest control industry we can only hope so.
