As Summer Comes to an End, Pests Seek Shelter Indoors

Pro Staff Pest Control shares the most prevalent pests we expect to see in the fall.
  • Orlando, FL (1888PressRelease) September 10, 2013 - As the summer winds down, pests populations begin to diminish, but homeowners are not completely out of the clear. In fact, as the temperatures cool, even in Florida, pests will begin to seek food and shelter indoors. Pro Staff Termite and Pest Control wants to share with your the most prevalent pests and how to keep them outside where they belong.

    Some of the most common intruders during the fall and winter are rodents. They thrive on water, food and warmth to survive, and your home is the perfect place for them to reside. The concern with rodents is that they can spread diseases, build nests and chew through wiring in your home. If you have pets, they may also spread fleas, ticks and mites. If you suspect an infestation, a pest control professional needs to be called immediately. Make sure food is sealed in airtight containers and that any leaky water sources are promptly eliminated.

    Bed bugs are a prime concern because they can be difficult to get rid of without a professional pest control intervention. Although they aren't known to carry disease, they do leave itchy red welts, and can actually leave a lasting emotional effect resulting from an infestation. They are notorious hitchhikers, so it's important to inspect hotel rooms, and check luggage following your vacation. Bed bugs are difficult to control and a pest professional should be contacted.

    Ants and cockroaches tend to be the most common pests. Carpenter ants can cause damage to your home, and other species of ants can infest your food. Cockroaches have been known to carry 33 different kinds of bacteria and can even trigger asthma in children and even some adults. Pro Staff Pest Control recommends that you eliminate any type of moisture from the home, and keep bathrooms and kitchens sanitized. It's also important to clean up food crumbs and keep food containers tightly sealed.

    "When you're enjoying the changing seasons, gearing up for football games and enjoying a get-together at your home, pests should be the least of your worries," says Robert Welch, president of Pro Staff Termite and Pest Control. "Many of these pests should be taken care of by a pest control professional if an infestation if suspected."
