If you hadn’t taken the proper precautions during the fall, there’s a chance that you will begin seeing an increase of overwintering pests around your home. If they are already inside of your walls, this can be problematic as they begin to emerge this spring season. With the increase in warm temperatures finally settling in across Oklahoma, overwintering pests will soon emerge.
In many cases, overwintering pests won’t emerge at the same time. For this reason, it’s not uncommon to see just a few insects inside of your structure at first trying to escape through door frames or windows. However, it is possible to see an uptick in the number of beetles and other overwintering pests emerging over time.
The most common overwintering pests that emerge in Oklahoma homes throughout the spring include boxelder bugs, ladybugs and stink bugs. If these pests have died inside of your walls throughout the fall season, it is possible that they will begin to create an unpleasant smell. However, it is very hard to get them out at that point without accruing some damage and repairs.
Although most overwintering pests are unsettling and annoying, they typically will not cause any damage to your structure or bite. However, the same can not be said about rodents that have nested in your home throughout the fall. If a rodent has gotten comfortable in your structure and has the food and water needed to sustain life, it is unlikely that they will want to leave on their own. Unfortunately, this can create health hazards for the inhabitants.
