In Colorado Springs, nothing beats the warm weather returning as ice melts from the trails and spring brings a new year of outdoor fun and adventure. Unfortunately, the warmer weather often brings other things with it – such as spiders, ants, wasps, and other common pests – the last thing anyone wants inside of their own home!
As the premier provider of effective pest control in Colorado Springs, Deft Pest Solutions is committed to providing exceptional pest control services in Colorado Springs and the surrounding areas.
Common Pests in Colorado Springs
With our years of experience doing pest control in Colorado Springs, we deal with all kinds of pests in the summer. Some of the most common include:
- Spiders – Wolf spiders, funnel weavers, orb weavers, camel spiders, and house spiders are some of the most common types of spiders in Colorado Springs. The poisonous black widow spider is also quite prevalent, especially in garages and crawl spaces, where they build webs around the entrances to catch other bugs. While rare in central Colorado, the brown recluse is another potential danger in Colorado Springs. Our spider and bug control in Colorado Springs is unparalleled; we are ready to keep these pests out of your home.
- Ants – Odorous house ants, sugar ants, pavement ants, carpenter ants, red harvester ants, fire ants, acrobat ants, pharaoh ants, and Argentinian ants are all found in Colorado. Every spring, ant colonies become active again, creating mounds in yards, streaming out of pavement cracks, and in many cases, trailing into the kitchen. Ants are unique because they leave a scented trail for other ants to follow, and the scent keeps them coming even after the area has been treated with conventional pest products. That’s why we apply special non-repellants and baits to control ants. Most over the counter products take care of the ants that you see; they don’t treat the ants you can’t see living below ground tracking the scent left behind by other ants. Over the counter products simply don’t solve the problem. For long term solutions, you need to address the entire colony which is what we do at Deft Pest.
- Wasps – In the summer in Colorado, it can seem like wasps are everywhere! Paper wasps build honeycomb-shaped nests in the eaves of homes, sheds, and commercial buildings, and bald-faced hornets attach their globe-shaped nests in tree branches. Yellow jackets or Muddauber wasps will even build underground. Known for stinging when threatened, and for teaming up to take on intruders, it is important to leave wasp control up to an experienced pest control professional – especially if you are allergic to the sting!
