With the cold temperatures of late, many people in South Carolina wonder if winter pest control is really necessary. The answer for a variety of reasons is a resounding yes
. Winter brings a number of pests that are not seen as often in the warmer months. Winter pest control is important for more reasons than we can count, but we have outlined a few below.
Winter Brings Rodents and Other Pests Indoors
Winter is often the time that rodents and other furry pests decide that it’s much better to live indoors than outside. In the winter, we see an increase in calls for squirrels, spider control, mice, rats, and even raccoons. Many of these pests find holes in and around plumbing pipes and make their way into your home—uninvited! Squirrels, opossums, and raccoons are notorious for damaging fascia boards and soffits to make their way into your attic to make a nest for their young. Winter pest control can help to identify these problem areas and fix them before it is too late.
Pests Hibernate in Winter Waiting to Multiply in Warmer Months
When pests make their way into your home during the winter, they often enter a state of hibernation where they can be difficult to detect. They tend to lay low during the winter and may lay eggs which will not hatch until the weather begins to warm up. With consistent monthly or quarterly winter pest control treatments, you can avoid these new colonies of pests invading your home at the first hint of warm weather. Spring tends to be the time when pests flourish in and around the home. Why not avoid this yearly struggle and hire a Spartanburg pest control company to provide winter pest control? Do not give pests a warm place to sleep this winter. Get rid of them before they multiply and never leave.
