Why You Need Year-Round Pest Control Now

Pest control is often one of those things people don’t think about until springtime when pests start to appear most abundant. The common misconception is that bugs go away in the winter.

Unfortunately, that’s not entirely true. Just because you don’t see those little critters around your house, doesn’t mean they aren’t actually there. In fact, it is very likely bugs are in hiding, waiting for spring to emerge and lay eggs. That’s why you should consider year-round pest control now.

To break things down even further, here are the main reasons why you need year-round pest control, according to Chris Call, regional branch manager of Fox Pest Control Westchester:

  1. Not all pests have the same life cycle. Stink bugs, for example, will hide in your home through the winter and emerge to lay eggs. Rodents, on the other hand, peak in the fall and winter months.
  2. It’s estimated that rodents are responsible for 20 percent to 25 percent of all fires of unknown origin  because of their propensity for chewing electrical wiring and gas lines.
  3. Many pests are known to spread disease, so they present a considerable health hazard in your home.

Year-round pest control might actually end up saving you more money, as emergency treatments could end up costing you more in the long run.

Thinking ahead pays off in peace of mind, too. Knowing that any pests that were dormant in your home are now gone will undoubtedly allow you to enjoy your spring and summer much more. Treating your home in the winter will ultimately ensure your summer is free of bugs and other pests.
