No More Pests In Winter, Right?◀ Back To Blog
November 29, 2016
We wish we could tell you this is true. It is no fun having your home invaded by bugs and critters. But, the truth is, while pest invasions decline in winter, you can still have pest issues during the cold months here in Albany. Most creatures don't hibernate; they simply go into a low energy state until it warms up again. If they've already gotten into your home, they can drive you crazy all winter long. And, if they haven't gotten in yet, all it takes is a warm day for them to go from being outside in the cold to being inside your nice toasty home.
When Pests Have Already Invaded
Every fall something frustrating happens, bugs, rodents, and other animals look for a place to hide from the approaching winter. It could be something small like wasps hiding in your eaves or ants hiding in your basement. It could be something slightly larger like mice crawling through your wall voids and chewing their way into your kitchen, or bats using your attic as a cave to hide in. But there are also large creatures like skunks and raccoons that can make your life miserable when they choose your home as their winter home. If any of these pests have invaded, they should be removed before they can do damage to your home and spread illness to your family.
Often times pest damage and contamination can go unseen, and winter illness can be mistaken for the flu or the common cold.
