Springtime in Colorful Colorado

What bugs to look out for this Spring and what you can do to manage them.


Ants can ruin a good time both indoors and out. During this time of year, the ants begin to leave their dwellings underground to work, gather food, and build their colony. You may notice increased activity along your baseboards, around your foundation, and near the edge of your driveway and sidewalks.


Daddy long legs, black widows, grass spiders, sac spiders, and the wolf spiders are all common on the Western Slope. Some of these spiders are more dangerous to humans than others. Many of these spiders spin webs that are uneasy on the eyes causing your home to be appear extremely uninviting.


Colorado is home to German, Brown-Banded, Oriental, and American cockroaches. Not only are they ugly, they can carry diseases that are transmitted to humans when they get into our food.
