We’re almost there! The snow is melting, we get a little more sun every day, and it’s no longer cold enough to freeze the snot in your nose. Spring is on its way! Excited as we are, however, rising temperatures and plant renewal bring about something we’re definitely not looking forward to: pests. Pests look forward to spring just like everybody else. Higher temperatures mean they can survive out in the open, and freshly uncovered plants make for a great food source. Every spring, ants, bees, spiders, beetles, and other pests re-appear, and they’re eager to make up for lost time. You don’t want your season to start on a creepy-crawly note, so when you’re doing your spring cleaning this year, take a couple minutes to complete these pest-proofing chores, too.
