Winter in Nashville and Middle Tennessee is unpredictable; sometimes warm, sometimes cold, sometimes wet and sometimes dry. With the ever-changing weather, do you ever wonder where pests go in the winter? Well unfortunately friends, they don’t go anywhere. It doesn’t get cold enough for long enough in our region to get rid of pests. Insects are still plentiful in the winter months they just may not be visible to you. Warmer days may draw them out though. Other pests such as flies and mice could be active inside your home all winter and the latter is likely to nest in your attic, walls or basement to spend the winter in.
So where do pests in Nashville and Middle Tennessee go once winter arrives? It’s simple nowhere really. Though the severity of the winter may see an increase or decrease in pest activity, insects and rodents common to our region are still a problem for homes and businesses regardless. And while some pests are more of a nuisance when come out to say hello, other pests pose a threat to health and property. Mice and other rodents for instance, introduce serious health issues and if left to their own devices, are likely to destroy building materials, create fire hazards by chewing on electrical wires, contaminate insulation and other materials with their droppings and urine.
Because of unpredictable weather patterns you should continue with your pest management to keep insects and rodents under control throughout the year.
