4 Pests To Expect This Winter

4 Pests To Expect This Winter

When temperatures start to dip, many outdoor pests start to move indoors in search of warmth. This winter in Canada, you can expect to see several types of pests in your home. Dealing with a pest infestation is frustrating, and finding the right residential pest control provider is the best way to protect your home from an invasion. Truly Nolen is here to help. Here are four pests you can expect to see this winter and how we can help you get rid of them.

1. Ants

You may deal with ant infestations year-round because they are constantly looking for food and water to bring back to their nests. Although they are most common in the summer, ants often move indoors during the cold winter months. Food is harder to find outdoors, and your kitchen provides plenty of sustenance for the entire colony. Getting rid of ants without professional assistance is hard, so it is best to contact Truly Nolen as soon as you see the first ant. The faster you take action, the quicker you can eradicate the problem and protect your food from scavenging pests. Storing all of your food in airtight containers can make your kitchen a less appealing environment for ants.

2. Spiders

Most spiders pose no threat to humans. On the continent of North America, only two species of arachnid pose any danger to humans, and death from spider bites is rare. However, millions of people have arachnophobia. You may see spiders move indoors in the winter and start spinning webs in the dark recesses of your home. Having a single spider may not be a cause for alarm, but if you have a pregnant female with an egg sack full of arachnids, you may be dealing with a full-blown investigation within a matter of weeks. If you suspect the spider is poisonous, you also need to take immediate action to protect yourself and your family.

3. Cockroaches

Although cockroaches are not particularly dangerous to humans, many people dislike and fear them. The pests commonly move inside when they have easy access to food. They are often found in kitchens. During the winter, the bugs often come indoors seeking warmth. You can minimize the risk of attracting cockroaches by keeping your home clean and reducing the amount of clutter you have so that the insects have fewer places to hide.

4. Ticks

Ticks are outdoor pests that are most commonly found in the summer. The pests are known to carry many harmful diseases, so it is important to remove ticks immediately when you discovered them latched onto your skin. During the cold winter months, ticks sometimes move indoors seeking warmth. If you see these small black pests in your home, you need to take immediate action because a tick bite could potentially damage your health if the pest carries a disease.
