With winter closing in it’s a good time to think about indoor pest problems. This is because the warmth of your home is an open invitation to many unwanted visitors. Certain insects can actually thrive inside your home during the cold season and getting rid of them could prove a little difficult once they set in. Thankfully, a little preventative maintenance by the Best Pest Control Services can reduce or even eliminate these particular problems. For instance, a thorough spraying of insecticide can reduce or eliminate many of the common nuisances such as cockroaches and fleas. This is a boon for homeowners who have cats or dogs because winter is especially tough on them. A flea infestation during winter can make your pets miserable.
Other wintertime pests that present particular problems are rodents. Field mice and rats are always searching for warm places to nest and easy access to food during the colder winter months. Unfortunately this could mean your home, storage buildings or garage. Mice can be a particular problem because they are normally very quiet and are often difficult to see. In many cases you won’t even realize there is a problem until you see the telltale droppings or signs of critters attacking your food supplies. An experienced pest control expert can make short work of these problems by setting traps and baits. Traps are effective for catching the rodents outside of the walls while baits can be taken to the nest to eliminate the whole bunch.
Of course, some pest issues are a problem all year long. This includes insects like the termite. Termites are always looking for places to build a colony and the dry wood in your home is a perfect location. Because you are spending a lot of effort to keep the building warm the lumber it is made from can be even drier than normal. Add to this the easy access to water from winter storms and you have a magnet for termites. Unfortunately, winter conditions can make it difficult to treat the problem because excess moisture from storms and snow could disrupt bait systems. No matter what your pest problem may be a visit from the Best Pest Control Services can keep them under control. If you are trying to deal with unwanted pests consider contacting AAA Exterminating.
