Winter pests - AZ

While your garden and home may have less insects during the cooler winter months, that doesn’t mean that you are 100% in the clear. There are many pests that still cause issues for homeowners and businesses throughout the winter months. Keeping a year round pest control treatment schedule is key to keeping these pests controlled all year long.

When the temperatures drop and before snow begins to fall, pests will start looking for a warmer place to stay for the winter. That means the insects will invade your home to beat the cold. Below are some pests you need to consider when making your winter pest plan.

Get A Head Start On Scorpions

Scorpion feature

Scorpions tend to “bed down” and hibernate during the chilly winter months, this gives proactive home owners the chance to get a head start on their scorpion control plan.  Here are a few things you can do this winter and early spring to keep your house scorpion free.

 

Tip 1:  Seal the structure and perform routine maintenance.

Sealing your home will make a impact on how many scorpions are able to sneak into your home. Seal the doors, windows and any areas where there is an opening into the home.  You should always seal the structure before any major landscape cleaning or pest control spraying to avoid encouraging the scorpions to come inside.  Most times if you see a scorpion in your home, it will be sick or dying.  Usually this happens after a pest control spray, as healthy scorpions tend to avoid hums contact.

Winter Pest Solutions

It is true that many pests die off for the winter, or go into hibernation, or retreat to their winter forts, such as ants. But there are many pests that would rather not take a winter vacation. Instead they fly, crawl, or jump to the more tropical weather provided by the shelter you know as your house. For this reason, residential pest control shouldn’t be skipped for the winter months.

Due to this fact, we at AZEX Pest Solutions wanted to take a moment to remind everyone to not let their guards down over these cool and cold months, and to take advantage of our great fall and winter spray and pest solution specials including gutter clean outs.
