Fall Pantry Pests

Pests can appear during any time of the year, but fall pests are particularly insidious. They are often drawn to the home in search of food and shelter. However, fall pests are more likely to infiltrate your pantry and get into your food supply. This is dangerous because contamination can affect small children, animals, the elderly and others who are living with a compromised immune system. Our pest control service professionals are completely aware of the dangers of fall pests, and we can take the appropriate measures to identify them correctly and eliminate them from your home.

About Fall Pests

There are many types of pests that are able to enter the home and begin to nest during the fall. The autumn months are usually cool, and the humidity in the air will be dropping. Pests can sense these changes, and they will respond accordingly. Once they enter your home, they can start to build their nests in dark and damp areas where they may remain undetected for long periods of time. Our service professionals are trained to spot the signs of a pest infestation, which may include feces, building materials, damage to the wiring and other signs.

Examples of fall pests include the following:

  • Rodents
  • Cockroaches
  • Spiders
  • Ants
  • Silverfish
  • Flies

Fall pests are drawn to the home during the fall because of the abrupt change in the temperatures, which signal that the winter months are coming. Pests will sense warmth in the home and enter through tiny cracks and openings that are difficult for people to see. This will allow them to have an opportunity to find an area that is suitable for nesting, and they can remain here during the entire winter. If they are not eliminated from the premises, you could have pest infestation as soon as the winter is over. Small pests can become a source of food for larger ones, and this is why you should act right away.
