Now's the time for kids to come back home from college with their entire dorm room's contents. It's also moving season. And vacation season too.

While spring cleaning is a great time for homeowners to de-clutter and spruce up the home, this seasonal tradition is a doubly beneficial time to tidy up in order to prevent undesirable, springtime pests such as ants, termites, mice and fruit flies.

From cold swampy sleet to sunny skies in a matter of hours, it's pretty crazy. What does it mean? How is it affecting the earth, humans, animals and even pests?
Special thanks to Kohl Children's Museum for displaying Rose Pest Solution's Pollinator Tree in their exhibit area at the 2016 Chicago Flower and Garden Show.
