So, where do all of those pesky pests go during the colder months?
They don’t migrate south for the winter, but during colder months, you might not notice a lot of rodent or insect activity. Just because we can't see or hear the critters doesn’t mean we should stop defending our homes from them.
Regardless of the temperature, tree branches often provide great pathways to the exterior of your house. Take the opportunity while branches are bare of leaves this fall and winter to chop down any that could lead nuisance wildlife onto and into your home. Also, chimneys and stove pipes should be covered with screens to prevent access to your home’s indoors.
Keep your firewood stack far from the house. These piles often provide safe harbors for pests, and moisture stored in many types of wood provides a great feeding and breeding ground for roaches and other insects.
These are a few tips that can help you get through the colder months without having to deal with pesky pests. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call us today at...
