Spring is the time of year when the trees and flowers come back to life and change the bleak winter landscape into a colorful sea of floral blooms. But along with the reawakening of the flowers comes the reawakening of pests that go into hibernation through the winter.
Ants, wasps, mice, bedbugs, roaches, millipedes, centipedes, hornets, bees and spiders are all common pests in the Toronto area. In particular, ants, wasps, and mice become active and start their reproduction process after the warm weather returns. Pests are in full swing by the month of May and the long-anticipated spring and early summer months can turn into a miserable time of the year for you if pests set up in your home. Get a head start on stopping these spring pests before they ruin your warm-weather plans by calling pest control in Toronto.

Carpenter Ants: One of the biggest nuisances that apartment dwellers and single-family homeowners can expect to face with the warm weather of spring is carpenter ants. Carpenter ants hibernate deep underground, surviving even the coldest weather, and wake up with a vengeance.
Wasps: When the weather warms up, queen wasps who have been fertilized and hibernated through the winter wake up and start looking for a place to build a nest. She lays her first eggs and slowly the hive grows, sometimes to the size of a basketball by late summer. If they start building a nest in the eaves of your home above your door or in a wall void, they can quickly become a nuisance and dangerous.
Mice: If they’re indoors, mice and rats can reproduce throughout the year, but spring is their mating season, as well as a time when they go back outside to forage for food. Far from solving your rodent problem as they head outdoors, it means that they have renewed access to even greater food sources and will start multiplying.
