Different pests are active at different times of the year. During the winter months, many of the pests you noticed earlier in the year may have gone dormant. While some may die off, those that remain are the ones that will emerge during spring season.
Most people see the same pests year after year because they only opt for pest control treatments when they see the bugs. Just because you don’t see bugs, it doesn’t mean they aren’t there. Bugs need to be warm in cold weather just as much as we do.
This is why we treat your home’s interior during the winter time to get to bugs in places like the basement or garage. Some pests that can be active during the winter include mice, rats, spiders, lady beetles, box elder bugs, and springtails.
