Are You Protected From Winter Pests?

With the weather beginning to change, you may see an uptick in the number of insects, rodents and other pests in and around your home. Without proper treatments or prevention in place, these pests can, unfortunately, become a permanent resident. To ensure your home is protected and pests are detected early, here are some of the pests you should be on the lookout for this winter.

Overwintering Pests

As the temperature begins to drop, you may start seeing a wide variety of insects congregating in the sun on the side of your home. If left alone, these pests will infiltrate your siding and search for a way inside to escape the cold. Some overwintering pests found in Oklahoma include rodents, cockroaches, boxelder bugs, lady Bugs, and brown marmorated stink bugs.

Bed Bugs

During the winter months, many different pests can hitchhike their way into your home. In recent years, no bug has been prolific as a hitchhiker than bed bugs. Before you, or any guests staying at your home, unpack their luggage, be sure to check both the luggage itself and the room for signs of bed bugs to ensure none of these blood-sucking pests take up residence.


In Oklahoma, the risk of your home becoming infested by termites isn’t a seasonal problem. However, termites remain active during the winter and will continue to look for new cellulose sources to feed and expand their colonies. If you are in need of termite control services, Emtec Pest Control can help with the award-winning Sentricon® System!
