Why Winter Pest Control Service is Important

Most people try to cut back where they can to save money. One area that many are tempted to cut back on, especially during the winter months, is their pest control services. People feel that canceling their pest control services during the winter to save some money is okay since pests aren’t an issue in the winter. That makes sense, right? Well, this way of thinking is wrong. Pests can become an issue in homes any time of the year, so canceling your pest control services during the winter can leave your home vulnerable to a variety of pests. Keeping up with your pest control services throughout the year will save you both time and money by not having to deal with unexpected pest problems.

Many types of pests are still active during the cold winter months. Termites are a pest that is active 24/7, 365 days a year. They don’t care that it is chilly outside; their mission is to continue foraging for food. If you are not prepared, it could be the structural wood in your home that they are feasting on all winter long.

Mice are another type of pest that commonly invade homes during the winter. Once these pests are inside they can cause a lot of damage by chewing through wires, insulation, plumbing pipes, and even personal items that are stored in basement and attic areas. Other pests that frequently cause issues for homeowners in the winter include Asian ladybird beetles, boxelder bugs, stink bugs, cluster flies, spiders, and paper wasps.

In continuing throughout the winter with your pest control services your contract warranty will remain up to date and therefore there will be no need to worry about canceling services and then re-starting them again in the spring. It is very easy to forget to restart services in the spring and in doing so it may not be long till you wake up one warm, spring morning and find ants picnicking in your kitchen. Continuing with your services this winter gives you one less thing to worry about with spring in sight.
