Why Fall Pest Prevention and How Adams Exterminating Company Can Help
October 31, 2018
Fall is in the air, but a number of pests are still present and active throughout the fall. Many people let their guard down this time of year because they think the pest season is over. However, stinging insects will be sticking around for a little while longer and spiders and rodents will be heading indoors.
Some stinging insects become more aggressive in the fall as their populations' peak, and their food supply diminishes. They will be diving for sweets snacks at outdoor picnics, barbeques, and other outdoor events. They will invade human areas, especially around garbage, spilled drinks, and food crumbs. In the case of wasps, they will die off as the weather cools, however, the future queens may have found a way inside your home looking for a place to overwinter.
Spiders will start to seek refuge inside homes in the fall where insect pests are plentiful for them to eat. But homes do not only provide food, but also warmth and shelter that they need in order to live and reproduce. They prefer dark secluded cracks, crevices, and corners where they create untidy webs that will clutter your ceilings and walls, and they creep around, startling people.
The cooler weather will also draw rodents inside, seeking warmth, shelter, and food. The difference is that rodents can cause people health problems as well as damage homes. They contaminate surfaces and foods with bacteria and germs from their bodies, urine, feces, and saliva. Rodents spread Salmonella, dysentery and other diseases that make people sick. They also bring fleas, ticks, and mites into homes. Rodents are avid chewers to keep their teeth at a manageable length and have been known to chew through just about anything including electrical wires and plumbing pipes. This chewing can spark a fire or cause pipes to leak and flood a home. The repercussions can be devastating and costly.
