Many of the insects that have been enjoying the delightful sunny warm spring and summer months in the great outdoors are now desperate to seek shelter. Their natural instincts direct them to find a warm place to spend the cold winter months. If they don’t, they will soon perish as the cold begins to settle upon New Jersey. The trick for NJ homeowners is to keep these unwanted creepy crawlers out so that an infestation cannot occur within wall voids, attics, under floors, in cabinets, behind baseboards, and in dark out of the way spots that pests love to hide in.
Warmth seeking pests can easily find their way into the slimmest of cracks or open spaces. You could spend a pretty penny on the finest insulated windows, but they won’t protect you from unwanted insects if they are not caulked properly on the inside and the outside of your home. When thinking about safeguarding your home against insect intruders, you should look on your hands and knees at each entry door of your home. If you see daylight through the opening, then you should install a door sweep and weather stripping to help close up the gaps that will allow pests inside.
Once they gain access, you will often times find box elder bugs, stink bugs, lady bugs, and other insects basking in the sun on walls throughout your New Jersey home or business until springtime arrives once again. If you have noticed an abundance of insects crawling on the exterior of your NJ home, there is a good chance that they will gain entry inside without the application of a residual insecticide applied by a pest control professional.
Winterizing your New Jersey home is definitely important, but so is having a good New Jersey pest control program in place to help guard against unwanted intruders.
