During the long winter months, some homeowners may detect curious sounds coming from the ceiling area. Although they could be nothing more than the scratching of Santa’s sleigh on the rooftop, these sounds are probably caused by pests as they scurry around the attic floor.
Winter Pest Control
Controlling pest infestations during the winter is very important for the health of your family as well as the value of your property. The presence of pests can indicate a variety of underlying problems with the building’s defenses. Pests often enter through cracks and crevices that have not been filled in with caulk. They can find exposed areas where insulation is guarded by a thin slice of wood. Once they start chewing away at the wood, they can quickly nest and breed. Before very long, you could have a massive colony over your head.
Common winter pests include:
Homeowners can remain unaware of a developing problem for a long time. Sometimes, this habit emerges from a fear of the pest. However, the longer you wait to take care of it, the worse it can get.
