Although most customers see a reduction in pest activity during winter, it does not mean the problem is gone! With the mild climate, pests are just more reclusive during the winter months.
Rodent activity in our homes significantly increases. The comensel rodents (house mouse, roof rat and Norway rat) are driven to seek warmer shelter with food and water sources. Our homes provide all of these needs.
Numerous pests we see during the rest of the year "over winter" to hibernate or pupate in our attics, crawl spaces, wall voids, under exterior siding, etc. Many of these pests (cluster flies, ladybugs, boxleder bugs, stink bugs, yellow jackets, etc.) are finding a safe and warm place in winter so they can start all over again in spring.
If you're concerned about insects or rodents "wintering" in your home or place of business, give Dave a call at 1-800-400-6009.
