As the weather gets cooler during the fall, some pests will be noticeable in your home and your yard. It is tough when you have to deal with unwanted pests that come into your yard. Abracadabra Lawn Pest & Weed Control can take care of your pests and stop them from returning. Before you make a phone call, here are 5 common pests that are active during the fall that you need to look out for:
Cockroaches prefer to live in a warm environment but can also survive cooler weather. They want access to shelter, water and food, so you can easily find them in your home. You can prevent cockroaches from entering your home by blocking access to your home from outside. Sealing all of the cracks and holes in your home, including your doors and windows near the roofline, is important. If you notice those methods are not working, you should call a professional.
Mice are looking for a warm place to live and eat food during the fall; that place is your home. Having mice in your home is unsafe because they reproduce quickly and carry diseases. If you see one mouse, it is most likely that there are other mice in your home. If you don’t take care of mice, your home can become infested, so it is best to hire someone that can properly prevent and remove them.
Beetles are harmless but will be more active and noticeable during the fall. They love to be inside homes during the fall and winter months. You can find them in your yard and windows. The best way to remove them is to not spray chemicals and get rid of them with a vacuum cleaner. Bugs are something that some people are afraid of, so sometimes it is best to have a pest control company take care of the beetles for you.
Spiders are creepy-looking insects that are active in the fall because that is the time when they look for mates. The spiders you have seen in your home may have been there before fall, and now they are just looking for a mate. Spiders like to be in areas like basements, bathrooms, and kitchens. They love dark and damp environments.
If you go to a picnic or park, you will most likely find bees. Bees are usually worse during the fall because they are preparing the queen bee for winter. Bee stings can sometimes cause an allergic reaction so if you notice there are bees hanging around your home, contact a pest control company. They have experts that can get it under control.
The fall is one of the most beautiful times of the year, but these common pests will be looking for a warmer place to live. If you notice some of these pests in your yard or home, contact Abracadabra Lawn Pest & Weed Control today. They will take care of your pest problem right away.
