The start of any season brings new pest control challenges for both homes and businesses that haven’t taken the appropriate precautions. Perhaps the most challenging season when considering the influx of unwanted pests occurs throughout the autumn months. As temperatures begin to fall and the cold weather starts to set in, many fall pests will begin establishing their own nests indoors to escape the cold and secure food and water.
There are many different factors that can make a home hospitable for fall pests and it is important that homeowners and business owners can identify them. Although we still have a small window before fall is officially here, now is the perfect time to begin preparing for the arrival of unwanted pests. If you are ready to be proactive, here are some of the ways you can limit your chances of pest infestation this fall.
While many different pests can find their way indoors during the upcoming months, perhaps the most troublesome threat is rodents, like mice and rats, because your home or business provides a safe and warm environment. For this reason, it is important to seal any possible entry points that they may use to gain access to your home or business. Do a thorough search around your home or business and look for any gaps or cracks in the exterior of your structure that may provide access.
Because there are many holidays throughout the winter and fall months, you will likely be bringing decorations out of your attic or other storage locations. Unfortunately, cardboard boxes and other storage containers provide accurate hiding and nesting spots for a wide variety of pests, such as spiders and cockroaches. Thoroughly check these items when removing them from storage before unpacking them to limit the chances of pest infestation.
