Why You Need Pest Control in the Winter


Like humans, pests also seek warmth and sustenance during the colder months. Yes, you heard it right! Winter is not the time to relax your pest control efforts. There is quite the contrary scenario waiting for you. If you’re scratching your head in disbelief, let me explain why winter pest control is necessary and crucial for maintaining a pest-free environment.

Pests Don’t Hibernate – They Invade!

Contrary to popular belief, most pests don’t hibernate during the winter. They instead search for cozy, warm places with a consistent food supply – like our homes! Rats and mice, in particular, can be pretty troublesome, gnawing on wires, spoiling your food, and spreading diseases. Then some ants have honed their survival skills to make it through the winter and can infest your pantry quickly.

And let’s not forget our eight-legged friends – the spiders. Spider populations tend to surge in the fall, leaving numerous egg sacs behind. These little ones remain snug and safe throughout winter, ready to invade your space as soon as spring arrives. You need a robust barrier to ensure these critters don’t get too far when they start their seasonal expedition.

The Value of Winter Pest Control

Winter pest control involves sealing potential entry points, addressing food and water sources, and setting up preventive barriers. At Barrier Pest Control, we do all that and more, ensuring your peace of mind throughout the winter. We don’t just treat current infestations but proactively guard against future ones, nipping the issue right in the bud.

We constantly strive to upgrade our tools and techniques to combat these winter invaders. Remember the drones we’ve been raving about? They have revolutionized our inspections, allowing us to reach even the hardest-to-access areas. Our drone can spot water leaks and insulation issues and detect the presence of pests like termites in crawlspaces. This cutting-edge technology makes our job more efficient and offers you a more comprehensive service.
