Winter Pest Control prevents Spring problems

The winter months should not be used to save money on pest control services, in fact, even though some pests like rats, ants and roaches, just to name a few, may adjust their living arrangements from outside your home to inside where it is warmer, it is just as important to keep the professionals at a Panama City Pest Control company close by.

You don’t have to be a rocket scientist to figure out that when the temperature drops everyone runs for cover, so don’t be surprised to find the ant and roach population on the inside of your home on the increase. One way to slow this process down is to inspect for cracks and have them closed up.

When the heat comes on inside the home it can act as an excellent incubator for rodents and other insects, which simply means that the environment is ripe for increasing families. Areas like walls and attics can make for very good hiding places and jumping off points for these creatures as they hide and wait it out through the colder months.

Inspections should be carried out on a regular basis as we look for signs of rodent and insect activity. These inspections will provide us with the usual tell tale signs that we are vulnerable to intruders. If we have a chimney or other opening in our home it should be sought out and properly secured to avoid facilitating the breeding of more pests.

Insect eggs like those belonging to spiders should be removed in an effort to break the cycle of a new batch of creepy crawlers, thereby reducing their attempt to repopulate for the warmer months. Cracks should be sealed, materials around the house that are damaged like wires or molding should be immediately repaired.

Residents should contact their Panama City Pest Control company and have a professional give their home a thorough examination, before any new arrivals appear. If any signs of new insect or rodent activity become evident, corrections can be made and the home can once again be secured. So don’t allow yourself to drop the ball, even in the winter, pests must be attended to.
