The 15 Most Dangerous Springtime Pests and Problems

Just in time for the annual spring cleaning certain pests may welcome themselves in your home or yard, making your life miserable. The little home invaders usually hide in dark corners where you may not be able to spot them until there is an infestation. Serious problems with insects vary from region to region, says Lynn S.
