Why Continue Pest Control Through Fall And Winter?

Spring and summer are busy months for pest control services. Blooming trees and warm weather bring swarms of insects and other pesky critters. Many people turn to pest control technicians to solve their infestation problems during this time of year.

What few people fail to realize is that pest control treatments should be scheduled year round to keep bugs away from their home or business. By understanding the risk of discontinuing pest control during the fall and winter, you will see why it’s so important to stay a step ahead of pests year round.

Avoiding expensive and challenging pest problems

If your pest control program is discontinued in the fall and winter months, you’ve left an open door for insects and critters to descend on your home or business. Instead you should rely on treatment methods tailored to the pest problems in your area, year round.

Some pests such as stink bugs, beetles, ants, flies and termites seek shelter as the temperature drops. Once the infestation begins, they can be difficult to manage. Some insects spend the fall and winter months reproducing, which means an even larger amount of insects when spring and summer return. Without pest control during these months, a larger, more expensive problem, may arise. You will also risk the diseases and viruses that accompany most pests.

Winter rodent infestations

During the winter months, rodents often squeeze through cracks in the walls of homes and businesses. These rodents do so to escape the winter weather. Rodent infestations are one of the most common winter pest problems. If you prepare ahead of time and put pest control methods in place, you can avoid this frustrating issue.
