Are you finding pests in your home? It isn’t surprising. It’s cold outside. And not just cold, it’s wet too. These conditions can drive critters into your home. If you don’t have a barrier that protects your home from unwanted invasion, you’re going to have bugs and animals getting in when conditions outside become unpleasant for them. That is why it is vital to have year-round pest control for your home.
When bugs and animals get in, they aren’t just a nuisance. Those bugs that are crawling inside your curtains can leave stains. They can also stain your upholstered furniture, bedspreads, rugs, and more. Some pests damage important items, like your favorite clothes, old photos, financial documents, wallpaper, and wood antiques. They crawl into cabinets, and squeeze into pantries to lay their eggs and feed “inside” your food packages. They plague your family and your pets with bites and stings. And, some will even introduce diseases into your home.
While you may not see a lot of bugs crawling around outside of your home this time of year, that doesn’t mean they can’t get in–or that they haven’t already gotten in. If you have bugs or rodents living in your walls, you may not even know it, until you’re suffering from their presence in your home–but sometimes, not even then. Some families suffer with flu-like symptoms caused by invading creatures and shrug it off as the flu.
There are many ways bugs get into our homes in winter. Some are surprising. If you suddenly have a flea or lice infestation in the middle of winter, it can seem baffling, until you understand that mice and rats can bring these bugs into your home. Then it all starts to make sense.
Bugs can squeeze in through your exterior walls or ride into your home in grocery bags, in your belongings, on your friends and family, on your pets, in the fur of invading rodents, and more. If you’re fighting roaches, it could be because you stepped on a roach and got eggs in the treads of your sneakers, and then brought those eggs in. The many ways pests can get in is startling.
Ongoing pest inspections and treatments help to address bugs and wildlife before they can do damage to your home and your belongings, and before they can harm you, your family, and your pets. It is non-stop protection for pests that don’t stop.
