How Winter Pest Control Can
Help You Enter the New Year Pest-Free
Many people tend to believe that just because winters are so cold, pests either hibernate or die. And actually, that is not so far off from the truth. Many common pests cannot survive harsh winters, and some of them will hibernate for the winter months. What people get confused about is the definition of hibernation. Most people believe that hibernating means creatures will find a warm spot to sleep in the winter, and they will remain completely dormant until it warms up again.
Hibernating actually means finding a warm shelter for most creatures in the cold months. While activity may decrease slightly, common pests will be looking for a place that will protect them from the weather and provide a reliable food source. Can you think of anywhere they might be seeking shelter? Our homes are one of the best looking places for bugs and rodents who are looking to survive the winter.
It’s time to be on the lookout for:
We deal with spiders all the time, and all over the world. Seeing a spider or two is pretty common in the corners of our homes, but without taking proper precautions for winter, you will likely be housing more than a few. Spiders tend to like damp and dark corners of your home. Bathrooms provide them with a good water source, and while they are not necessarily dangerous to your health, they are unsettling. If you don’t want spiders finding their way into your home, get your winter pest control services done with Insight Pest Solutions as soon as you can.
Another common pest we all want to avoid are cockroaches. These bugs actually can pose a threat to the health of you and your family if not treated properly. Cockroaches emit a smell and carry bacteria that can contaminate your food, causing your household to get food poisoning. In the winter, cockroaches rely heavily on human homes to supply them with a strong shelter and plenty of food to last them all season long. Calling the Insight pest control professionals can help you treat or prevent cockroaches from invading your personal space when you need it.
One thing about termites is that they are a pest that remains active year-round. There is no slow season or dormant season when it comes to these terrors. Termites are responsible for causing massive amounts of damage to homes all the time. They eat and burrow into the wood structures of your home, harming the structural integrity of your space. It may not be apparent that you have a termite infestation, so it is always important to schedule routine inspections with Insight Pest Solutions. Our team of experts can come by to assess your home to ensure that you will be safe throughout the winter.
