It happens every year. While some pesky pests go into hibernation, others will be scouting out new winter accommodations and your home is at the top of the list.
Be prepared and aware by keeping an eye open to some of the pests you don’t want settling in for the winter.
Rodents and Wildlife
Rats and mice like dark, undisturbed places to nest. They can fit through the smallest of openings, and once they have access, can do significant damage to wiring and drywall. Like squirrels, they love to gnaw which can lead to dangerous situations.
Raccoons are larger pests that enter a home through openings or a chimney that isn’t protected with a mesh covering. They’ll make their way to the attic where they’ll make their den.
They need food and moisture and your home has both readily available.
Brown Recluse Spiders
These creepy crawlies can live in your home in undisturbed areas like crawl spaces, stored boxes in the attic, or closets that aren’t used frequently. Their bite is venomous.
