Fall Season Pest Control
Homes need to be kept safe from pests throughout the year, and that includes the fall season. That is when the temperature outside starts to drop and rodents and insects seek shelter anywhere they can, including inside your home. Whether in your home or commercial space, ASAP Pest Control will always be there to help you get rid of the worst of these pests, but there are still things you can do to make the process a little bit easier.
Why Fall Pest Control is Important
First of all, let’s talk about why fall pest control should be taken seriously. When mice, cockroaches, and other vermin make it into your home as the weather changes, they are more likely to cause damage to electrical wires, drywall, and food that you have in storage. On top of that, they often spread diseases that will get worse once your family is largely stuck inside for the winter. If you’re concerned about pests staying in your home during the winter, it’s going to be a lot easier to keep them out in the fall before they can settle in.
Pests That Are Common In The Fall
In Ontario, there are a wide range of pests that commonly invade homes, stores, and businesses. These will likely be the same pests that you’d see in the spring or summer. These include mice, cockroaches, spiders, and wasps. The difference is that these pests might be more active and more likely to get into your home as the weather starts to cool. Sealing gaps near your foundation and near plumbing fixtures can keep mice and roaches from getting into your home while storing food in tough sealable containers will protect them from any hungry pests. You can also keep wasps and termites at bay by moving firewood and vegetation away from your home. Having a few spiders around is actually beneficial to your home, but they can be removed if they start to overrun your home with webs.
