Autumn weather is here, and that means many pests will begin to search for warmth and shelter to wait out the cold winter months. With a little bit of time and some elbow grease, you can prepare your home for fall and protect against these seasonal invaders.
One of the key approaches to pest management is prevention, which means stopping the pest before they can even make it inside. Follow these tips to pest-proof your home and enjoy a warm, cozy winter without any unwanted house guests!
While many pests are naturally eliminated after the first frost, there are a number of critters that survive the winter. One way they do so is by finding food and shelter to make it through the coldest months. They have an instinct to search for shelter once the shorter days and cold nights return. These pests can include flies, stink bugs, ants, spiders, roaches, mice, rats and other large rodents such as chipmunks and squirrels.
