Spring Time Bugs

In Houston, Texas, springtime typically brings out various types of bugs due to the warmer temperatures and increased humidity. Some common bugs you might encounter during spring in Houston and surrounding areas include:

  1. Mosquitoes: With the increase in humidity and rainfall during spring, mosquitoes become more prevalent. They can be a nuisance and also carry diseases such as West Nile virus and Zika virus.

  2. Ants: Ants are very common in Houston and become more active as the weather warms up. Fire ants, in particular, are known for their painful stings and can be aggressive.

  3. Termites: Termites swarm during the spring, seeking new places to establish colonies. These destructive pests can cause significant damage to homes and other wooden structures.

  4. Cockroaches: Cockroaches thrive in warm and humid environments, making Houston an ideal habitat for them. They can spread diseases and trigger allergies in some people.

  5. Bees and wasps: Spring is when bees and wasps become more active as they start building nests and foraging for food. Yellow jackets, paper wasps, and honey bees are commonly found in the area.

  6. Flies: Flies are attracted to the warmer temperatures and can become a nuisance, especially around garbage and food sources.

  7. Ticks: Ticks become more active in spring, particularly in wooded areas or tall grass. They can transmit diseases such as Lyme disease and Rocky Mountain spotted fever.

  8. Spiders: While spiders are generally beneficial because they prey on other pests, some species like the brown recluse and black widow can pose a threat to humans with their venomous bites.

To minimize encounters with these bugs, it's essential to keep your surroundings clean, eliminate standing water, seal cracks and crevices in your home, and consider using insect repellents or professional pest protection services if needed.
