What Does Winter Pest Control Look Like?◀ Back To Blog
January 31, 2017
If you spent the time pest-proofing your home last fall, or you had the experts here at Thomas Pest Services do it for you, winter pest control is pretty simple. A good winter pest control program should include an inspection of attic spaces, basement areas, garage areas, as well as any sheds or storage areas you may have on your property. Limited pest control measures may be needed to address any problems that are found during this inspection. Sometime even if you did everything within your power to pest-proof your home, some pests may still sneak inside, especially if we have a mild winter like the one we are currently experiencing.
Most bugs and wildlife don’t hibernate, so pests can get into your house any time of the year. The way they do it is by exploiting vulnerabilities on foundation walls, gaps around plumbing and electrical wires, areas where moisture has done damage to the wood of your home, through door and window corners, eaves, soffits, your roofline, shingles, and even your chimney. Pests will look constantly to get into your home by any means possible, if your home has not had proper pest-proofing or that pest-proofing has failed, winter pest control can help stop the problem immediately.
