Many think that winter is the ideal time to skip pest control. When it is cold outside, it seems as though pests are less active, which can give a false sense of comfort. The fact is, winter pest control services can be the most valuable services of the year. Many pests such as rodents seek warmth and shelter in the wintertime, which can increase the likelihood of infestations when there are not prevention methods in place.
Eliminating Unseen Pests
Pests such as termites and carpenter ants can cause extensive damage to your home. It may be difficult to spot the damage without the assistance of pest control professionals. These infestations will not change with the seasons, but skipping pest services in the winter can allow your home’s infestation and damage to worsen. Bain Pest Control can inspect your home and prevent, or eliminate, these types of infestations so that they are not allowed to wreak havoc on your home through the colder months.
Taking Advantage of Cold Weather
Cold weather can give homeowners an advantage in eliminating infestations of many different types of pests. Pests such as rodents and spiders may flee nests when pest control services come into the infestation area. After pest control services have cleared out the nests and sealed the entry points, these pests will not be able to survive the cold temperatures and find new entry points to reinfest. In many cases, Bain Pest Control identifies and eliminates infestations before owners have even noticed signs of pests when doing winter preparation inspections.
Many insects will hide in attics during the winter and stay dormant until the weather warms up. This can cause unknown infestations during the time that these insects are inactive. Bain Pest Control can treat attics to prevent insects such as stink bugs, wasps, and boxelder bugs from infesting the home when temperatures rise in the spring. Treatments may also help to eliminate flea eggs and pupae that lie dormant when there is no food source from pests such as rodents.
Preventing Winter Infestations
The experts at Bain Pest Control know what types of infestations are common for certain areas and can help homeowners develop a strategic plan to prevent infestations before they happen all year long. Professional exterminators will thoroughly inspect the home and warn homeowners of potential entrance areas around windows and doors. Exterminators will also create a barrier around your home using materials that will help to stop pests from seeking refuge inside when the temperatures drop.
