Fall Pest Control Tips For The Upcoming Season
September 13, 2017
While the warmer temperatures continue in Atlanta, fall will soon inevitably arrive. Unfortunately, with the changing of the leaves and pumpkin spice latte’s will come a myriad of dastardly fall pests.
Knowing how to spot these nuisances, and how to prevent them in the first place, can make all the difference when it comes to fully enjoying the fall season this year.
Let the fall pest control experts at People’s Pest Control give you some much-needed advice when it comes to what fall pests to watch out for:
The fall season is known for bringing about a slew of different insects, which could all wreak havoc on your home or business if you’re not fully on the lookout for these bugs.
These pests include stink bugs, ladybugs, boxelders, and ants. While stink bugs and ladybugs are typically nothing more than an annoyance, boxelder bugs can get into your home and turn into an infestation.
The same goes for ants, who will surely be looking for a warmer environment (AKA your home) to snuggle up for the fall. In order to prevent insects this season, you should ensure all windows are closed and food is always swept up off the floor.
If you’re already dealing with an insect infestation in your home or business, don’t hesitate to contact People’s Pest Control for immediate assistance.
While rodents are typically only an issue during the winter, they can also be a problem in the fall. These critters can carry nasty diseases that could infect both you and your pets, which is why it’s important to be aware of the threat they pose during the fall.
Beyond making you sick, rodents can also cause damage to your home by gnawing through electrical wires. If you suspect a rodent infestation in your property, contact an Atlanta pest control professional immediately.
Bees & Wasps
Stinging insects like bees, wasps, and yellow-jackets thrive during the summer, building their nests all over the place. However, when the temperatures begin to dwindle, the food source for these insects begins to disappear, and they can become hostile as a result.
It’s quite common to be stung during the fall, as stinging insects start to die off, which is why it’s always recommended to call on a pest control expert to remove any nearby nests. This will ensure you and your children are safe when outdoors.
