Winter is almost upon us, and as you prepare to cozy up indoors, pests are looking for a warm and inviting place to call home – and your home could be their next target.
Among the various pests that can invade your space during the colder months, spiders are particularly noteworthy. To ensure your peace of mind and a spider-free home, consider professional spider control services from the experts at Truly Nolen Canada.
Below, we’ll delve into the world of spiders and discuss other winter pests like rodents, cockroaches, and birds, providing valuable insights into why they are active this season and what you can do to keep them at bay.
Winter Pest Control & Beyond: Keeping Pests Out of Your Home This Winter
Rodents, including mice and rats, are notorious for seeking refuge indoors during the winter. As temperatures drop, these furry intruders are on the lookout for food, water, and shelter. Your home offers all three, making it an attractive destination. Once they invade your home, they can chew through wires, contaminate food, and carry diseases.
Prevention Tip: Seal cracks or holes in your home’s foundation, walls, and roof to keep pests out. Store food in airtight containers, and eliminate standing water sources.
Spiders can send shivers down anyone’s spine, and they become more active in winter for several reasons. First, they seek warmth, so they may venture indoors to escape the cold. Additionally, their prey, such as insects, seek shelter indoors during winter, providing spiders with a readily available food source.
Prevention Tip: To maintain a spider-free home, keep your home clutter-free, as eight-legged pests love to hide in piles of items. Regularly dust and vacuum to remove cobwebs and potential hiding spots. If you’re wondering how to get rid of spiders for good, Truly Nolen Canada’s experts can quickly and safely rid your home of these creepy crawlers.
Cockroaches are resilient nuisances that thrive in your home’s dark, damp corners during winter. They can enter through cracks and crevices. Once they’ve infiltrated, they reproduce rapidly, making them difficult to eradicate.
Prevention Tip: Fix leaky pipes and faucets to reduce your home’s moisture levels. Store food in sealed containers and keep your kitchen clean to deny them access to their favourite food sources.
While birds may not be the first pests that come to mind in the winter, they can still be a feathery frustration. Birds like pigeons and sparrows may roost on your property, causing damage to roofs, gutters, and buildings. Their droppings can be unsightly and carry diseases.
Prevention Tip: Install deterrents like netting or spikes to discourage birds from roosting on your property. Regularly clean droppings you notice to prevent the buildup of nests.
