Are you seeing more pests in your home? How is this possible when the temperatures outside are getting down in the 30s? Aren't all the bugs and animals hiding for the winter? Yes. They are. But, they may have chosen your home to hide in. Here's what you need to know.
If you're seeing boxelder bugs, lady bugs, and stink bugs crawling around in your home, it isn't surprising. While these creatures can't sustain themselves inside our homes, they definitely have no problem using them as a hiding place during the cold winter months. But, in the few months they spend inside, they can stain clothing, drapes, carpets, furniture, and other items--not to mention, drive us crazy.
If you're seeing cockroaches or rodents, it isn't surprising. The cold temperatures may have driven them in for the first time, or they may have already established their home inside yours, but a reduction in available food sources outside is forcing them to get more meals inside. Either way, these creatures often become more noticeable in winter months.
If you are dealing with a flea infestation, especially if you don't have any pets, this isn't surprising either. When rodents get into a home, they can bring parasites like mites, ticks, and fleas with them. While you're sleeping, and those rodents are exploring every corner, they might be dropping flea eggs everywhere they go. And though fleas can't use humans as hosts, they are more than capable of biting us.
There are many bugs and animals that invade Nashville homes when temperatures drop. Some of them are not quite so obvious, like cluster flies and wasps tucked away in your wall voids, attic areas, and crawl spaces. When it warms up in spring, these creatures can sometimes emerge inside, rather than outside, where they want to be. That is why it is vital to have on-going pest control services.
