19 Jan PEST CONTROL IS STILL NECESSARY IN WINTER MONTHS
When the weather turns to winter, many may think that pest control is not as important as warmer months. However, that is a common misconception. In the winter months, insects and pests actually tend to make their way into homes in order to find warmth making pest control more important than ever. Eco Advantage Termite and Pest Solutions is here to share all you need to know about winter pest control.
COMMON WINTER PESTS IN NC
Cockroaches – Cockroaches like to hide in small areas containing moisture. They are most often found in bathrooms or kitchens and can spread bacteria and pathogens.
Spiders – Spiders like to hide in secluded places like crawl spaces and attics. However, they can be found near window moldings, ceiling corners, closets, in boxes, or in shoes that haven’t been worn in a while.
Termites – Termites damage the home from the inside out, so by the time you notice the destruction, it is too late.
WAYS TO PREVENT WINTER PESTS
• Secure weather stripping around windows and doors
• Install screen vents to your chimney
• Seal all cracks and holes on the outside of your home.
• Eliminate moisture from all attics, basements, or crawl spaces — look into encapsulation
While these steps can help prevent winter pests from invading your home, winter pests can always find a way into your home. This is why it is important to call the professionals at Eco Advantage to make sure that all necessary prevention techniques are thoroughly and properly completed.
