Even though many pests migrate or die off during the coldest months of the year, some rodents and bugs are going to look for nearby nesting areas where they can remain warm and protected from the elements. Unfortunately, your home could be overrun by pests during the winter season, and that is just one of the reasons why it is so important to contact Colorado Pest Pros for seasonal service calls.
During the holidays, your guests could bring a wide variety of pests into your home, and that includes bed bugs. While these bugs usually don’t carry dangerous diseases, they can result in painful rashes. Bed bugs are also notoriously difficult to get rid of, and you will need to come up with a comprehensive sanitation plan if you want to get them out of your house. That includes washing all of the fabric throughout your home and scheduling a preventative service call with one of our team members.
Whenever it gets cold outside, mammals are going to look for a warm place to nest, and that is why many people struggle with mice and rats during the coldest months of the year. Over time, those pests could destroy your property, bring germs into your home, and cause thousands of dollars worth of damage. To eradicate a rodent infestation, you will need to eradicate their entry points and remove their sources of food and water.
While cockroaches can survive freezing temperatures, they will almost always look for shelter once the weather starts to cool off. These pesky insects are very common in Denver and the surrounding communities, and they will bring countless allergens and contaminants into your home. Sealing up small pinholes and cracks is a great start, but you will also need to consider some type of pest control trap or spray. In this area, German cockroaches are very common, and those pests are notoriously difficult to eradicate without professional help.
If you have other types of bugs in your home, then you are probably going to deal with spiders at some point. To eliminate a spider infestation, our team must first identify which species is in your home. We can then come up with a treatment plan once all of the factors have been considered. Our team will look for other pests as well so that the spiders don’t have any source of food. Once their food supply has been cut off, many of the spiders should die off naturally.
Our team understands just how annoying these infestations can be, and we would love to help you eradicate any rodents or bugs that might be in your home. Please call us today to learn more about our affordable pest control services.
