April Pests for the Greater Austin Area

Spring has sprung in Austin and with it comes the increased pressure to stop pests before they become infestations of monumental proportions. April pests still include yellowjackets and rats, but we are also on the verge of biting flies, and summer pests. The mild winter and warm wet spring are a haven for many pests including mosquitoes, fleas, ticks, and flies. Here’s a look at what to expect around Austin in terms of pest issues.

  1. Rodents – Most have overwintered well and now are searching for food as their stored cache of food is low or exhausted. All the babies they had over the winter are also reproducing and looking for food. This spells out a big pest control issue if rats and rodents are not controlled.
  2. Mosquitoes – it is important to address mosquito abatement early before their populations grow. This is often the job of civic agencies, but homeowners can do their part too. Many articles about mosquito abatement discuss removing standing water, and that is important. However, mosquitoes do not need standing water to lay eggs. They need only moist soil. This makes mosquito control more difficult but not impossible. Reach out to us for more information about home-based mosquito control.
  3. Baby Animals – orphans and others – Not all baby animals are orphaned. Fawns for example are usually hidden by the mother while she is nearby feedings or leading predators away from the baby. Baby birds out of the nest are often orphaned and can be cared for by professional at wildlife rescues around Austin.
  4. Wasps & Insects – Spring is the time of year when insect populations really start to grow. Some are just emerging from winter and others have been active all winter long. Now is a good time to start an insect pest control program with the goal of controlling wasp, fly, ant, and cockroach population around your home and yard.
