Navigating Seasonal Pest Activity: A Guide for Larimer County Residents

In Larimer County, which includes areas like Fort Collins, Loveland, Windsor, Estes Park, Wellington, Berthoud, Timnath, Johnstown, Severance, and Laporte, each season brings its unique pest challenges. Understanding these seasonal variations can help residents take effective steps to prevent infestations. This article provides a detailed guide to navigating seasonal pest activity in Larimer County.


Spring signals a time of renewal, and this includes the awakening of pest populations. As the climate becomes milder, we see an increase in activity from pests such as ants, termites, and spiders. Implementing regular inspections, ensuring food is securely stored, and sealing potential entry points can help keep these pests in check.


Summer often sees a peak in pest activity. The warm weather coupled with high humidity creates a conducive environment for pests like mosquitoes, flies, and wasps. Keeping your yard well-maintained, eliminating standing water, and installing screens on windows and doors can help deter these pests.


When fall brings cooler temperatures, pests like rodents, spiders, and cockroaches often look for the warmth and shelter of homes. Maintaining a regular cleaning schedule, sealing off entry points, and managing waste effectively can help prevent these pests from making themselves at home.


While winter generally brings a lull in pest activity, certain pests like rodents and bed bugs can still be a concern. Regular inspections, especially in the warmer areas of your home like the attic and basement, can help spot any unwelcome winter guests.
