It’s hard to believe that winter is right around the corner! While the thought of snow, holidays, and time spent with family is exciting, nothing can ruin it all like a pest problem. That’s why residents trust the pest control services from Lawn Plus Pest Control Services. Our pest control programs specifically target common household pests and help keep them from invading your home.

Top 4 Winter Pests in Your Home

1. Bed Bugs

Nothing scares guests away faster than bed bugs. Unfortunately, you may not even realize you have an infestation until it’s too late. That’s why expert extermination services are always a must, especially if you’re hosting different family groups this time of year. You can’t always guarantee that the bed bugs came from your home, but we can guarantee they don’t spread anywhere else. 

2. Spiders

During the colder months, the presence of spiders in your home can increase. Not only are they moving indoors to stay out of the cold, but they’re also looking for safe, warm places to lay their eggs. While most spiders that make it into your home are harmless, there are a few that you’ll want to keep an eye out for, such as the Brown Recluse. These spiders have venom that leaves nasty sores and welts. 

3. Ants

Ants don’t just ruin summer picnics and barbeques. They can also ruin Christmas dinner. While you might assume they’re hibernating during these colder months, spotting just one or two in your home is an indication they’ve already made themselves comfortable somewhere within your walls. Not all ants are bad, but if you find winged carpenter ants, then it’s time to call us for extermination, immediately! Carpenter ants can quickly destroy your home and furniture from the inside out. 

4. Furry Creatures

Mice, rats, squirrels, and raccoons are always looking for a food source and shelter. During the warmer months, they’ll burrow in the ground or in the knots of large trees. But during the winter, your home is a prime location. Not only can they tuck themselves within your walls, but they can also build nests in the chimney and in the attic. The best solution is to call pest control experts who know how to handle unwelcomed rodents before they ruin the holidays.
