As the season’s change and the temperature starts to drop, humans are not the only ones looking for a warm place to cozy up for the winter. Spiders, mice, cockroaches, and rats are among the dirty dozen that are going to try and make their way into your warm home for the winter. Aside from the health factor, pests can cause your home some serious damage. These pest control and prevention methods will help you protect your home from any unwanted winter pest invasions, so you and your family can enjoy the festive season uninterrupted and pest-free.
Winter Pest Preparations
As the flying insects start to disappear, winter preparations are fully underway in the land of the ants, spiders, rodents, and cockroaches. It’s this time of year that these guys start preparing and getting ready for the long, cold winter ahead. Seeking refuge from the cold, most of these insects are looking to your warm and cozy home for their winter relief. This is why pest control measures are so important during this time of the year. Keeping these invaders out will save you heaps of hassles in the long-run, not to mention potentially thousands of dollars in unforeseen property damages.
Mice and ants find wood piles the ideal nesting place for the winter. Well-hidden and protected from potential predators, wood piles should not be kept too close to your home. Rats and other rodents find their way quite easily into your home through the smallest cracks and spaces that you may have overlooked. Similarly, the gaps in your windows and weather stripping are again ideal entrances for these buggy winter pests.
