This means the most effective treatment schedule will include a scheduled service even during the winter months. In addition, early spring is the best time to prevent insects from reproducing and populating your home.

And in years when the rain continues past the usual spring rains, pest control services will be even more necessary for control insects that might usually not proliferate as quickly.
4. Natural habitat surrounding your home
Areas with abundant wildlife may require more frequent treatment. In addition, having rocks or gravel around your home can provide a habitat for scorpions, centipedes and spiders. On the other hand, tall grasses around your home may lead to an abundance of mosquitos and fleas.
