Is Pest Control Necessary in the Winter?

Is Pest Control Necessary in the Winter

Insects and other pests are probably the last thing on your mind as we grow closer to winter.

While it’s nice not to have any current pest problems, like yellow jackets buzzing around, it is still a good idea to learn about local pests and what you can do to avoid welcoming them into your home.

Have you ever heard of overwintering pests?

Overwintering pests, unlike termites, will take some time off in the winter and hibernate. This is especially concerning because you might think your home is safe, but come springtime, the overwintering pests’ eggs will hatch, causing spring cleaning to take on a whole new meaning.

Prepare now for an easier spring!
