The leaves are turning, it’s getting colder, and the pests are moving in! Pest Control OKC is here to identify some common ones and what you can do when you see them.
1.) Cockroaches: Roaches need humans and their warm homes to survive the colder months. The best way to deal with a roach infestation is to prevent it by making sure your house is sealed and that there are no places for the roaches to hide. Once roaches are in, it can be almost impossible to get rid of them without a pest control professional. If you do spot roaches in your home give The Bug Guy, Pest Control OKC, a call.
2.) Ants: When most insects become less active in colder months, Ants keep right on going thanks to the hives they build deep underground. But just because they’re deep underground doesn’t mean you shouldn’t worry, these tiny engineers often position their nests in ways that allow them to build tunnels into your home. And don’t think an infestation will pass over with time, Ants colonies can live for years with a healthy queen and ready access to food.
3.) Spiders: These creepy crawlers will attempt to invade your home for 2 reasons: The first reason is like the others on this list, some spiders will move in to try and avoid the cold and search for food. The other reason however can provide some future problems. The second reason spiders will move in is to lay egg sacs. These spiders will typically die after a short period, leaving their eggs to incubate in your warm home and hatch when the weather gets nicer. A nasty surprise for summer!
