Importance of Winter Treatments for Pest Control

As winter sets in, temperatures drop, and we instinctively bundle up, retreat indoors and turn up the heat. The coziness of a warm house in the biting cold is undeniable. However, we’re not the only ones who appreciate this warmth; various pests share our sentiments! But unlike us, their entry isn’t usually welcome. You might hold the belief that pests disappear during the cold, but that’s a myth we’re about to debunk! Even in winter, pests are quite active, seeking the warmest corners to hibernate until spring.

Wintertime Pests: Misconceptions and Reality

Often, homeowners breathe a sigh of relief as winter approaches, mistakenly thinking that pests also “hibernate.” This misconception can lead to lax pest control measures, opening doors for pesky invaders. In reality, pests are ever diligent, looking for warm spaces to invade – like your lovely house or its hidden crawlspace. As a professional pest control advocate, it’s crucial to note: the battle against pests continues, even when it’s snowing outside!

Why Winter Pest Control?

Here’s a question we get asked frequently: “Why do we need pest control services when it’s freezing outside?” It’s a valid query, but unfortunately, the products we use around your home aren’t everlasting. The anti-pest treatments are generally designed to last for about three months. Post this, they start wearing off, and if left untreated, pests may find their way back to those areas around or under your home, making it even harder to dislodge them.

At Barrier Pest Control, we strongly recommend a quarterly program to maintain a protective barrier against any invading pests. Letting the barrier wear off past the three months can lead to a surge in creepy crawlies shifting towards the cozy spots of your home.

Spring Forward, Fall Back: Understanding the Seasonal Impact

Many folks notice a sudden increase in pests when spring arrives. This isn’t a coincidence! As temperatures rise, pests start to multiply. A missed winter treatment often means that the protective barrier around the home has significantly worn off, reducing its effectiveness. Consequently, the newly repopulating pests will have an easier time invading your home and hanging around its exterior.
