TOP FALL PESTS IN FAYETTEVILLE AND HOPE MILLS

With the air cooler and leaves starting to change — fall has arrived.

This also means time for new pests to start to emerge. 

As the temperatures drop, many pests start to appear that were not around during the warmer summer months. The main reason many pests start to appear is that they seek warmer places to winter which drives them to the warm interiors of homes.

Eco Advantage explains that this season, it’s time for you to take charge against some of the most common types of pests that are found in the fall. 

FIVE MOST COMMON PESTS

Spiders: Spiders are one of fall’s biggest pests. After maturing all summer long, female spiders are now ready to spin their webs and lay their eggs in preparation for winter. Fall is when spiders reproduce by laying eggs. 

Stink Bugs and Kudzu Bugs: Both Stink bugs and Kudzu bugs are fairly newer pests in North Carolina but are the biggest nuisances.  Both bugs are native to Asia but have made a home in our state in the past few years.  Both bugs can become an inconvenience for homeowners because they can gather in large numbers once inside a home, are hard to kill, and emit a foul odor when crushed.

Fire Ants: Fire ants typically build large mounds in soil. Fire ants can cause multiple, painful stings when their nests are disturbed or threatened. It is best to treat fire ant nests in the fall because the cooler temperatures make them more active.

Ladybugs: Ladybugs are small and cute but can be a real bother to homeowners.  In the fall, ladybugs seek warmer places to stay in the winter.  They gather in large numbers inside homes. Although they are not dangerous, these pests are difficult to remove from a home.

Rodents: Rodents, like humans, look for a warm place to stay during the colder months.  To prevent these unwanted houseguests, make sure all windows and doors are properly sealed.
