As the days become shorter and the nights become cooler, pest activity becomes slower in the south…or so one may think.
With the holiday season here, winter-time pest control may be the last thing on your mind, but don’t be fooled, not all the pests have gone away for the cold winter months. Pests such as spiders, ants, cockroaches, termites, bed bugs, fleas, and mice may slow down, but they don’t go away. In fact, they continue feeding, growing and multiplying, often in the warmth and comfort of our homes.
As a result, cutting your pest control service during the winter season, might not be a cost-saving measure as you thought.
Why You Should Continue Your Pest Control Service Through the Winter
1. Pests living inside the walls of your home are not affected by the cold temperatures outdoors.
2. Termites, carpenter ants, cockroaches, earwigs, and many other insects can thrive indoors as the weather is always pleasant inside!
3. Attics provide shelter to other insects such as wasps and spiders, as they try to escape the cold.
4. Mice can find their way into your home if all entry points are not sealed off.
5. When a pest management company performs a meticulous inspection of your home, inside and out, they ensure that no pest related issues are present and identifies any conditions that might increase the risk of future pest problems.
6. Inspecting and/or treating entry points like doors, windows, and peepholes provide lasting protection and ready your home for the emergence of pests in spring.
7. When a pest management professional removes spider webs, egg cases, wasp nests, and dirt dauber nests, it prevents pests from reemerging when the weather warms.
Remember, invasive pests want to be indoors during the winter for the same reasons you do! It is important to perform a comprehensive winter pest control treatment to ensure that your home is protected year-round.
