It’s Almost Winter! What Pests Should You Still Watch Out For

Winter time can be a great time for homeowners. While it’s still cold out, and you likely have to host some relatives you’re not that fond of over the holidays, one of the best parts about this time of year is that many pests – especially mosquitoes and other biting pests – tend to die out or hibernate, and both your indoors and outdoors are free of their discomforts.

Unfortunately, there are still many pests that like to invade in winter, and it’s important that you take the necessary steps to stay safe from these pests during these cold winter months.

Pests to Watch Out For

  • RodentsRodents are a serious winter pest problem. Both rats and mice seek shelter indoors from the cold, and your warm home and food supply make you a prime target. The best way to keep your home rodent free is to seal up all possible entranceways. Rodents will only enter if they can find a hole in your structure. If you already have rodents, contact Green Pest Solutions today at 877-636-9469.
  • Bed BugsBed bugs are resistant to the cold since they live indoors, and are a common issue during the winter because of holiday travel. It’s important to examine every place you stay for bed bugs and take immediate action if you think you’re at risk. Green Pest Solutions offers free consultations to help you determine if you have a bed bug issue.
  • Flying Carpenter Ants – Flying carpenter ants inside of your home means that you have an immediate problem. It means that you already have a carpenter ant nest inside of your home, and are likely in need of immediate pest control solutions.

Overwintering Insects and More

In addition, some pests – like spiders – may still be living inside of your home during winter. Others may be hibernating around your property. These pests may not be a problem right now, but they can become a problem as soon as the weather starts to warm up. Eliminating those pests may help you control the pest population in 2016 and beyond.
