Reasons to Continue Pest Control In Winter
Safe is Always Better than Sorry When it Comes to Bug Prevention
People tend to dismiss pest control in Phoenix during January and February, which are usually the year’s coldest months in Arizona. We do live in a warm area of the country, but the arid climate can still have occasional hard freezes that seem to kill off the majority of unpleasant crawly things.
But unfortunately, their lack of visual sightings is merely a deceptive decoy. They are still around, and you can safely bet the eggs that will spawn the next large generation in Spring is flourishing somewhere.
City wide pest control is just as necessary in the winter as it is in the warmer months. Partly because it is the when the eggs are already produced and in waiting. The other main reason is because it is the most opportunistic time to get on-top of lingering remnants of past infestations that are difficult to completely eradicate.
Organic pest control treatments that are safe for family and pets can make more of an impact during the winter and save homeowners from unnecessary expenses or health concerns. More aggressive treatments are inevitable if treatment starts after the eggs have hatched and matured into adults that continuously lay new eggs which require multiple pest control visits.
Winter is also an effective time for prevention. Insects and spiders trying to escape the cold outside conditions are drawn to the warmth and shelter that homes provide. Some of the most damaging bugs, such as termites and carpenter ants, can hide well within the interior walls and remain undetected while they chew and destroy a home’s construction. Cockroaches, bed bugs, spiders, kissing bugs and rodents may also continue to thrive where it is always cozy and snug inside.
