Why is Fall Pest Control So Important?

There’s a common misconception that pest control isn’t necessary during the colder months because many of the worst pests will die off until this spring. Unfortunately, this couldn’t be further from the truth! As colder temperatures begin to settle in across the region, the only pests that really die-off are the ones that are unable to find shelter indoors to take advantage of modern heating solutions. But why is fall pest control so important?

During the fall, several species of pests will begin making their way inside of your home to capitalize on the warmth and shelter it provides from the elements during the winter. In most cases, they will hide within your walls or attic to overwinter. While some of these pests may be harmless, like boxelder bugs or ladybugs, others like rodents can quickly cause damage to your home’s materials and electrical wires. For this reason, it is important to ensure that you have a strong pest control plan in place.

Pest control providers, like Emtec Pest Control, can help create a custom plan to help eliminate and deter both common pests and specific pests that you are experiencing in your home or business. It is important to understand that pest control should be a year-round process if you want to keep your home protected, not just during the summer months.
