Pest Control Tips for a Hassle-Free Easter Egg Hunt

Easter is almost here! This means communities and families are coming together to plan a delightful Easter egg hunt for the young ones.

However, before beginning to hide the Easter eggs, it’s essential to walk the egg hunting area as there can be potential hazards to the children. Below are a few pest control tips to follow before the Easter egg hunt.

Fire Ants

When building their nests, fire ants prefer open, sunny areas. Unfortunately, your yard is one example. That’s why it helps to go over your property and look for signs of ant hills before sending the kids out searching for eggs.

Whilst distinguishing between various ants can be hard, a trained pest control technician can tell the difference and recommend the best way to eradicate them. Fire ants should be taken seriously as their bite can lead to grave consequences.

Bee and Wasp Nests

The atmosphere can be cooling down by now but buzzing insects like wasps and bees are still out and about. Often times, you’ll find their colonies in obscure places like under a deck or railing and sometimes even laying on your lawn if they’ve fallen off a tree.

Stings are painful and for children, they’re worse. Get a bee control expert right away if you suspect that there’s an unwanted bee or wasp population on your property.

Other Pests

A range of other insects, small rodents and snakes are fond of hiding in the grass, rarely making themselves known. Hire the services of a reputable pest control company to survey your land and search for signs associated with any of these creatures.

Your egg hunt should be free from hazards for everyone, and pest control can get rid of any of those risks early on.
