What Fall Means For Pest Insects?
If you’re not fond of pest insects or arachnids like mosquitoes, ticks, or biting flies, then fall is a great season for you. Not only does the weather cool down from the humid heat of a Maryland summer, the bugs all either die off or go into a months-long hibernation until the weather warms back up again. However, not every insect goes away at the same time, and different species have different strategies for surviving the winter. Because of that, fall can be a bad time for insects getting into homes and warm businesses.
Becoming warm and staying warm is a priority for all kinds of insects and arachnids during fall, and since both are cold-blooded they need to find outside sources of heat. Many times this means the heat of a cozy home or a factory with a good heating system, and if they can find a crack to wriggle through they’ll end up indoors.
On the bright side, many of the insects that invade in the fall are completely harmless to humans and only come inside to get away from the cold. Still, they’re hard to miss, many of them make loud noises, and for many people any kind of insect in the home is unacceptable. To stop them from getting in, you should read up on how insects get inside, locate the cracks where they have enough room to get through and take some preventive measures.
You should also consider bringing in some professional pest experts. A pest-control inspector can help you locate cracked window frames, find old mouse holes that let smaller insects through and look for other ways to get in. They can also scrub carpets and clean the rugs to remove any traces of pest insects. Fall pests might not be dangerous, but they’re definitely annoying and a pest control service like Bugout can help you get rid of them.
