As temperatures drop and days and nights get cooler, we all tend to spend more time indoors. Unfortunately, the same goes for outdoor pests. As winter approaches, you may notice that mice, roaches, and other unwelcome pests start moving into your home. How can you keep these unwanted roommates from cozying up with you?
Keep Roaches Out of Your Home
If you start seeing more cockroaches running across your floors, don’t assume it’s because your house is messy. More likely, they’re moving in because your house is warm and dry. Cockroaches can’t survive in freezing temperatures, so as the weather gets cooler, they’re motivated to seek warmth.
A roach scurrying across the floor may seem gross or frightening or just a nuisance, but it’s actually a sign of a problem that you need to solve. Roaches can spread germs and bacteria, and have been known to trigger allergies and asthma. Cockroaches in the home need to be removed immediately.
