Unlike other pests that come into our homes during the cold winter months in search of a warm place to spend the winter, spiders are not attracted to warmth because they are “cold-blooded”. Spiders that remain in nature have bodies that produce an antifreeze substance. It’s a lot like the antifreeze we put in our vehicles to protect them in the winter! The spider antifreeze builds up in their tissues and helps lower the temperature at which they will freeze. Spiders instinctively know to find shelter as it gets colder, such as leaves or inside crevices in tree bark. Those small, sheltered places, combined with their antifreeze, keeps them alive until spring. If spiders find their way into your home, they don’t have to bother with the creation of the antifreeze or find hiding spots in trees to prevent their bodies from becoming frozen. Indoor spiders simply live out their lives eating insects in your home, die, or at the very least stop reproducing.

Perhaps when you think of rodents, the ever-popular Christmas mouse comes to mind, especially this time of year. However, unless they are pets, having rodents around during the holidays is far from a children's tale or cute addition to the season's cheer. Rodents are some of the absolute worst pests to have around the house, and often some of the most surprising. Rodent related expenses are among the most unwelcome, unexpected expenses homeowners in Terre Haute, Indiana face each year. Rodents can get into homes through openings as small as a dime, and considering a single female mouse can quickly become hundreds of hungry intruders, a rodent infestation can very quickly get out of control.

Bigger is not always better. When it comes to dealing with pest threats, warehouses have a lot more to worry about--for no other reason than the scale of their business. A large structure can hold more food, more liquids, more wood pallets (which are food for termites), and more areas of harborage. Three of these can be linked to the need for fumigation. Let's take a look.
