spider eggs winter pest control

​I think a lot of people have a misconception about when we need pest control services performed. I was that person until I started working for Barrier Pest Control. I have a phobia of bugs. In the past I always rested a little easier during the winter months thinking bugs die in the fall and re-appear in the spring. Working here, I’ve learned that that’s not true!

​Some die but many nest in walls, siding, attics, wood piles, heavy shrubs and crawl spaces. They slow down in a state called diapause. Some would argue that treatments are even more important in the winter months because creepy-crawlies reproduce during the winter-which is why there’s a plethora of spiders and bugs that come out of the woodwork in the spring. The granular product that we apply to the ground around your home is water activated! All the snow and rain break it down and create that BARRIER around your home, helping to prevent those insects and spiders from making it inside. Now that is pretty amazing to me!​I have year round service now and I couldn’t be happier! I sleep better knowing that Barrier’s skilled technicians know exactly how to keep my family and my furry friends safe from those nasty creatures! Don’t put off your winter treatment! You’ll thank me in the spring!
