You may call them winter pests / rodents. You may call them holiday visitors. You may call them pest just trying to stay warm. We call them seasonal invaders. They are the bugs, insects, and rodents that strike when the cold weather approaches. These winter visitors seek the warmth and comfort of your home and your business. Crawling in every crack and crevice they can to escape the pending winter cold temperatures. They include pests such as spiders, millipedes, springtails, box elders, mice and rats. These pests are commonly known to invade cozy homes and warm businesses during the colder months. Most pests will die off before the winter months, go in to hibernation, or retreat to their winter forts as ants do. There are many pests that do not take winter vacations. Instead they decide to fly, crawl, or jump to warmer locations provided by shelter located in houses and buildings . For this reason, your residential and commercial pest control services shouldn’t be skipped during the winter months. There are in-wall treatments that con be done, or other exterior fortifications that should be applied to keep your home or business bug free all year long. Skipping service for a few months could mean unwanted surprises during your next spring cleaning. The Kansas City Metro area is especially prone for a broad range of bugs and rodents, letting your service slip could mean letting in the local unwanted bugs or rodents. Is it worth risking your friends and families safety by letting your pest control maintenance slip for a month or two? Ideally, you should continue to have your home or business treated even when you believe that all of the pests are taking a winter break.
