A common misconception is that most pests go dormant in the cold winter months by hibernating, fleeting or freezing. But the truth is, many pests stick around and instead of lingering outside, they will be attempting to get into your warm home. A few of the most common winter pests in St. Joseph are rodents, ladybugs, spiders, stink bugs and bed bugs. Lady bugs usually aren't harmful or destructive to your house, but tend to hibernate inside in large groups, so instead of one or two you may have a hundred. Mice and rats however, are much more destructive. They are looking to live and thrive inside, making nests for their young, chewing your belongings, chewing the woodwork in your house, and even your electrical wires. And they are not just destructive but they risk contaminating your home with harmful bacteria and pathogens.
The main tip for keeping unwanted pests out of your home this winter is to block off their access to the inside of your home. Even rodents like rats can squeeze through a whole the size of a quarter, so diligence is required. Make sure that areas around your doors and windows, cracks in your basement, the siding on the outside of your house, and in your eaves and roof are all sealed. Also, since commensal critters like rodents depend on us for their food source, be sure to clean up crumbs, spills and leftovers. Make sure food in your pantry is stored in sealable containers and that you don't leave any food sitting out.
It is also very important during the winter months, especially when travelling over the holidays, to be vigilant in the search for bed bugs. Nation wide, bed bug infestations are on the rise and they can very easily hitch a ride home with you via hotel rooms, planes, busses, even taxicabs. So when you do travel, if you have to stay in a hotel, give the room a thorough search before settling in. If you do find an infestation of bed bugs or any other winter pests, contact Rose Pest Solutions as soon as possible to get rid of bed bugs in St. Joseph.
