We’re sure you are aware of the problems insects and rodents can create for you and your family. We all have some kind of bug that bothers us, and most of us have dealt with rodents in our walls, especially those of us who have an older house or business. But to understand why fall pest control is so important, you first have to look at the problem. And it’s gross.
Ants and termites are absolutely the home wreckers. Literally. They breach your home’s defenses and build their colonies in your walls. Those colonies feed and burrow into your wood, making enormous pathways through support beams and wooden structures. Many homeowners don’t even see the destruction till it’s too late, and they are looking at thousands of dollars of repairs–assuming they can repair at all.
Rodents creep into your walls to chew on wires, and dine on sheet rock. So, besides being a nasty, hairy, disease carrier, that crawls through your food drawers, they can also create problems with your electric, phone, internet, and television wiring. These problems are hard to track down and can be very costly to repair.
Pesky fall intruders also bring in viruses and disease. The not so lovable cockroach loves bacteria and decay. When he is done slinking his shiny brown body through the sewer pipe, he is happy to crawl into your flour bag, or over the silverware in your drawer. The worst part is, many times you don’t even know it. Your children get sick with the flu, and you think it is just the season, unaware that the problem is being brought into your home by a brown and icky fall invader.
Biting insects, like: spiders, wasps, fleas, and ticks, love a nice warm place to spend winter. They get you while you’re sleeping. They bite you while you’re relaxing in the back yard. They get you while you’re cozy in your favorite chair. Insect bites are worse in fall, because there are more of them, kind of like Custer’s last stand.
Then, there are a whole slew of pests that are just plain irritating, like: stink bugs, crickets, silverfish, centipedes, cluster flies, lady bugs and more.
In fall, bugs and rodents are looking for a place to hibernate over the winter. And they can turn your happy home into a horror film. That’s why pest control is so important in the fall.
