Spring-Cleaning – 3 Pest Control Treatments To Consider This Spring

Here at Genie Pest Control, we offer a range of highly effective commercial and residential pest removal solutions. With more than thirty years of pest control experience, we have gained a comprehensive understanding of how these insects gain access to your property, the damage they can cause, the dangers they present and the times of the year that they are most active.

Different insects, pests, and rodents cause more problems at different times of the year. As part of your spring-cleaning this year, our expert pest control technicians recommend taking action to eliminate those pests that are most active during the Spring months before they become more of a problem. While there are a number of different pests that can affect your home during spring, we have identified three of the most troublesome that Omaha and Council Bluffs residents typically encounter at this time of the year.


Ants are one of the most common unwanted visitors in homes and business premises in the earlier months of the year. After mating, ants typically stay in their nest throughout the winter laying eggs to start a new colony. Once spring arrives, ants emerge from their solitary hibernation nests and this is where the trouble begins. They will venture into your home in search of food and once they have located a food source, their numbers can multiply quickly. To eliminate ants from your home, simply get in touch with our ant control experts at Genie Pest Control and let us take the appropriate measures to solve your ant problems.


Termites have the potential to cause a lot of damage to your home which can be very expensive to repair. Not only will termites chew at your furniture and wooden fixtures but, if left untreated, they can also cause structural damage to your property. In springtime, winged termite, also known as ’swarmers’ emerge in homes as the temperatures become warmer. Termite swarmers typically come from tree woodpiles, tree stumps outdoors. However, indoors, they can also emerge from the base of your foundations, porches, patios and other areas of your homes. They are attracted to light and can be seen near windows and doors when there is an infestation. Should you suspect you have a termite problem, it’s important to take action as quickly possible before the infestation gets out of control.

Moles and Voles

Moles and voles can destroy your garden if they are not eliminated quickly. Feeding mostly on earthworms, most of their burrowing is usually done at dusk or dawn. In the spring months, moles and voles are more active as their movement is predominantly for mating rather than just feeding. Tunneling through your lawn, they will destroy your grass trees and plants in no time, leaving you with even more work to do in your garden this spring. Moles and voles remain below ground level, burrowing both deep under the surface and just below the surface. If you notice that your garden feels spongy underfoot or you see small mounds in your garden with no open holes, there is a very good chance that you have a mole or vole problem. Get in touch with our mole and vole removal team at Genie Pest Control for an effective solution.

Who Invited the Bed Bugs? This is One Sleepover You’d Rather Not Host

Just the thought of bed bugs can make most people itch. While many feel their cleanliness standards would never allow for bed bugs to enter their homes, the facts are that keeping a clean and tidy home doesn’t prevent these annoying and unpleasant pests from entering your home.

Bed bugs are essentially parasites and as such, they get around by looking for an opportunity to hop on and ride along with an unsuspecting host. They are small, oval, brown-colored insects that live on the blood of animals or humans. Adult bed bugs are about the side of an apple seed and have characteristically flat bodies. After a good meal, their bodies puff up and are reddish in color.
