It’s my favorite time of year. The weather is getting cooler, the leaves are changing colors, pumpkin spice lattes, backyard bonfires and Halloween! I personally don’t drink coffee of any kind, but I appreciate that other people enjoy it! The professional pest control industry is very similar. Most all of our customers absolutely do not like or enjoy dealing with pest issues whatsoever, but they appreciate the fact there are some of us that do.
Fall is a transitional time for most all critters large and small. There are many types of insects that remain a problem all year long, others that are more seasonal then there is a certain group that are looking for places to hibernate and harborage themselves up for the winter.
In years past, we see an influx of pest issues as fall transitions to winter. Spider activity in particular increases with one of the reasons being their food source is diminishing. When we receive our first frost and consistent cooler weather, many flying insects will die, others will hibernate. We find this time usually being synonymous with increased spider activity. We always recommend to our customers to be on a maintenance program where they receive consistent service that creates a barrier of protection around the inside and outside of their homes to help keep all of this movement controlled and at bay. Consistency is absolutely key to keeping pests controlled. When you deal with nature, sometimes it feels as though you’re fighting a losing battle, however when you partner with a professional service company like ours, we take the struggle out of your hands and give you the peace of mind you deserve.
If you hate pests as much as I hate coffee, give us a call to take care of those issues for you. Who knows, we might surprise you with a free latte.
