Prepare for Spring: Advice from an exterminator on the North Shore

Combattre une invasion de guêpes ou de frelons à Montréal : Stratégies et coûts

Spring is a wonderful time of renewal, but it is also a season when parasites and harmful insects emerge from hibernation to invade our homes and gardens. At Rive-Nord Extermination, we are here to help you prepare your home for the coming season and protect you against potential infestations.

1. Preventive inspection

Before temperatures completely warm up, it is essential to do a thorough inspection of your home to prevent infestations. Look for cracks in walls, potential entry points around doors and windows, and storage areas where insects and rodents could be hiding.

2. Deep cleaning of the house

Spring is the perfect time to do a deep cleaning of your house and garden. Thoroughly clean up accumulated debris, eliminate food sources for insects and rodents, and make sure your garage or storage space is tidy and organized.

3. Elimination of wasp and ant nests

The wasps begin to build their nests in the spring, which can cause safety issues in your garden. For ants, particularly carpenter ants, they can nest outside, but also inside your property. Have your property inspected by a professional from Rive-Nord Extermination to detect and eliminate wasp nests before they become a danger.

4. Preventive treatment

For added peace of mind, consider preventative treatment against insect pests. The professionals at Rive-Nord Extermination can apply environmentally friendly products to protect your home against ants, spiders, bedbugs and other common pests.

5. Proper food storage

Store food in airtight glass or plastic containers to avoid particularly attracting insects to your kitchen. Avoid leaving unsealed food in accessible places.

6. Garden maintenance

Keep shrubs, bushes and tree branches away from your home to reduce insect and rodent access routes. Prune plants regularly and make sure nothing is directly touching the structure of your home.

7. Monitor humidity

Reduce humidity in your home by using dehumidifiers, repairing water leaks, and ensuring proper ventilation in areas like the kitchen, bathroom bath and basement.


By following these simple tips, you can ensure your home is ready for spring and avoid an insect or rodent infestation. Remember, the Rive-Nord Extermination team is here to help you every step of the way, so don’t hesitate to contact us for any questions or concerns. Take full advantage of the beautiful season to come with complete peace of mind!
