As the days begin to shorten and the temperature begins to drop, it is easy to think that your pest problems are over. On the contrary, pest control in Ontario is still necessary for dealing with the most common Autumn pests.
While many pests live outdoors and seldom find their way inside, there are quite a few pests that are sneaky enough to make it indoors when the temperature drops. This can be a big problem for home and business owners.
ICU Pest Control in Ontario has compiled a list of the most common Autumn pests that home and business owners might encounter. Each of these pests can easily find their way into a dry and warm home during the cold season:
Ants: Ants are constantly looking for food. This often leads them into a home when the food outdoors becomes less available. Once they are inside a home they can be incredibly difficult to eradicate. Often they make their nests underground near homes and commercial properties.
Cockroaches: Cockroaches are hardy survivors. They seek out water and a constant food source. This makes residential and commercial properties the ideal environment. In these locations they can easily hide and evade predators.
Mice & Rats: Rodents invade homes and commercial properties to find warmth and build a nest. These pests need food, water, and shelter to survive through the cold weather. They can easily fit through small holes and breed very quickly.
Bed Bugs: These pests are common throughout the year and can be easily transmitted from one location to another.
It is important that you check your home or commercial property for signs that your property is susceptible to pests. If you are unfortunate enough to already have an infestation, contact ICU Pest Control. We service Toronto and the Greater Toronto Area. Call today to receive professional help!
