It might seem like the work is done once you’ve pest proofed your home for rodent season and after the fall harvest, but don’t stop keeping up with your pest control efforts! There are other creepy crawlies that may be trying to sneak inside. Pests don’t just disappear with the cold weather, as much as we’d love to believe that. Here’s why to keep up with winter pest control and how we can help.
It’s not just mice that want inside. Spiders, roaches, flies, house centipedes and other creepy crawlies also want to join you for hot suppers this winter. Critters like wasps and squirrels may be looking for hiding places in attics and garages, but if you catch all these little pests before spring, you’ll have much less of a problem when it warms back up. Winter pest control can save you a lot of headaches in springtime! Watch for dormant insects like boxelder beetles as they won’t be moving around much, but who wants to share the house with a beetle? Pay careful attention to areas like utility hookups, dryer vents or chimneys for pest activity. Rodents and insects can live in your walls and won’t be as affected by the cold because of the heat from our homes. That alone makes us want to keep up with pest control over the winter! All it takes is a few extra steps to clean up potential food items for pests, checking over the entry points for any possible invasion and just generally keeping your eyes peeled for any pest activity. Remember to check over for new cracks or holes that need filling in the foundation of your home and to store firewood at least 20 feet from your door. Pest control is best when you continue to maintain the barriers against them and book annual winter pest inspections. We’re here to help you!
