The whereabouts of your least favorite home intruders aren't usually top of mind in February. But curious minds may ponder, where do pests go in the winter?
For many outside guests, their winter whereabouts may come as a surprise – especially since there are many survival strategies pests can employ that some may consider too close for comfort. The following are some examples of how pests can continue their lives in and around our structures during the colder months:
Regardless of where these pests spend their winter vacation, it's important to remember to stay vigilant. If something seems off consider seeking the advice of certified professionals like Rose Pest Solutions, the nation's oldest family-owned pest management company.
"It's fairly common for homeowners to encounter pests during the winter months given that so many species are associated with our structures and many of them actively seek shelter from the outside climate," said Mark VanderWerp, manager of education & training for Rose Pest Solutions. “While we may not be able to see what’s going inside our walls or crawl spaces, it’s important to always remember that there is never a season that all pest problems completely disappear.”
Preparedness and getting a head start are key and residences should be prepped for winter intruders during August and September. For year-round protection, you might want to consider the Rose Home Service program. Preventative and overwintering demonstrations and tips can be found on the Rose Pest Solutions’ YouTube channel.
