Fall pest control is important because along with the cooler weather comes critters and insects looking for a safe, comfortable place to live throughout the winter
Autumn is a time of brisk weather, crunchy leaves, and festive celebrations like Halloween and Thanksgiving. But it’s also a time when homeowners throughout New Jersey must face the threat of pest infestations. Fall is the perfect time to invest in pest control in New Jersey from B&D Pest Solutions and prevent insects and vermin from entering your home.
Why Is Fall Pest Control So Important?
Did you know that 84% of homeowners have experienced a pest control problem within the past 12 months? And while spring is well known to be one of the most major pest seasons, fall shouldn’t be overlooked.
Fall pest control is important because along with the cooler weather comes critters and insects looking for a safe, comfortable place to live throughout the winter – which can be very troublesome for homeowners in New Jersey.
By the time most pest infestations have taken root, they’re much harder to get rid of. That’s why preventive pest control is important. For example, if you can prevent rats or mice from infiltrating your home, you’ll spend a lot less time, money, and energy on eliminating them from your property.
What’s Involved In Fall Pest Control?
This can vary, depending on what pest threats are common in your area of New Jersey. If, for example, you’ve had termites before, B&D Pest Solutions will spray a termite insecticide around your home or treat the wood structures of your home with insecticide. This will prevent these pesky bugs from taking root in your home.
Other steps include sealing your house’s exterior to close up the openings that mice, bugs, and other pests can use to get inside. At B&D Pest Solutions, we can find hidden openings in the upper stories of your home, around window frames and door frames, in crawl spaces, and much more. By sealing up these openings, we can prevent pests from entering your home.
What Pest Infestations Are Common In The Fall & Winter?
Wondering what pest infestations may be the most common in New Jersey during the cooler months of the year? Here are a few common pests that may try to enter your home to find a warm, comfortable place to live during the fall and winter.
- Mice & Rats – Mice and rats typically venture into your home to find warmth and food sources. Unlike a lot of other small mammals, most rats and mice don’t hibernate throughout the winter, so they need somewhere warm to live – and your centrally-heated home is a great choice!
- Cockroaches – Cockroaches tend to live most of the year outdoors but will move inside when it gets colder, searching for warmth, a ready food source, and water.
- Spiders – Many types of spiders live in homes all-year-round, but fall is the mating season for lots of species of spiders, so that they may be a lot more active, and more spiders may enter your home looking for mates.
- Termites – Termites actually tend to mass in the spring when the weather warms up, but this means that the fall is the perfect time to take preventive measures to stop them from entering your home. With preventive fall termite spraying, you can eliminate the risk of termites in the following spring.
