With warmer temperatures, expect more pests at home

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

As the temperatures increase, so do the chances of seeing more critters inside your home.  

Area exterminators say gnats, fire ants, and mosquitoes are going to be prevalent this time of year. They say it's important for home owners not to leave food lying around, which is an invitation for pests to come inside. You can also reduce the number of pest in your home by checking the seals on your windows and pipes.  

"Up underneath the counter tops and stuff like that around the plumbing pipes if you can seal those around it's great, if not that's some of the areas if we do have to apply a product that's where we will apply it in the voids of the home and stuff or trim work. Not where it's out and everywhere. It's out of sight," said Heath Bass.
