Why Pest Control Services are Important in the Fall Months

Many Detroit homeowners assume that the fall and winter months eliminate any chances of a pest or rodent problem. Unfortunately, this is not always the case. In fact, you might find that there are actually many more reasons to consider pest control services in the fall months.
Some Pests Continue Their Activity Into the Winter
There are some pests that continue their activity well into the winter months. Bugs like stink bugs and wasps may be identifiable during the fall months. Additionally, there are some bugs, like ants and spiders that will attempt to move indoors during the fall. Contrary to common myth, spiders are not actually looking for a warm home. Instead, they are likely looking for other spiders to mate with, which could lead to a spider infestation in your home.
Rodents are Looking for a Warm Home
Many homeowners will find an increase in rodents and rodent damage during the colder fall and winter months. Rodents are looking for a warm home, either to mate or to hibernate and underneath garages and sheds is an ideal location. While you might not notice them for a few months, by then, they have done extensive damage to your house. A lot of rodents also carry diseases.
Termites are Always a Possibility
Termites are known to do the most damage to your house. The weather does not affect them as much, especially if they move indoors. In fact, termites do not enjoy the sunlight so with less of it in the fall months, they are more likely to be present. Termites can do a lot of damage to your house, in a very short period of time. By the time you find them and their damage, it could cost you thousands and thousands of dollars in repairs.
Flies Move Indoors During the Fall
You might also notice an increase in flies during the colder months. As the weather cools down, large numbers of flies will look for a warmer place to live and breed. Your home can easily go from a couple of flies to a large collection of them in just a few days.
Take Control of Your Detroit Pest Control Problem
As the weather begins to get cold, you might notice an increase of pests and rodents looking for a warm house. If they are able to find any entrance points in your house, then they will come in, often in large swarms. The best way to prevent this is to have your house inspected for entrance locations. It can also be useful to spray before the weather gets too cold.
