Pests That Thrive in Autumn

Autumn is one glorious season. It transforms the world around you into an explosion of rich, warm colours and it creates an ideal climate for cosying up at home with the family. Unfortunately, pests also love Autumn. Find out which pests thrive in autumn.

A lot of mums enjoy the nippy weather for cooking because not only does autumn present a bountiful harvest of delicious ingredients for comfort food, but cooking also makes the home the perfect retreat from the outdoor chill. The kitchen emits appetising scents that encourage every member of the family to gather around and spend quality time together over cookies, pies, soups, and warm cider.

Unfortunately, the warm condition indoors also attracts unwanted “guests.” When it’s cold and wet outside, all kinds of Autumn pests seek refuge in people’s homes and this is definitely no good. What’s worse is that these pests do not stay out of sight – sometimes, they just come out in the open, and frighten you and disrupt your routine with their pesky presence.

The following are the pests that most households deal with in autumn:

  • Bats
  • Bed bugs (especially after summertime travel)
  • Birds
  • Cockroaches
  • Fleas
  • Mice
  • Rats

All of these creatures are very annoying to deal with. They have destructive ways (they munch on things and poop in your home) and they carry around disease-causing germs and bacteria that can greatly compromise your family’s well-being.

So, before you start finding these creepers in your home, you better take a proactive approach to preventing their invasion. One of the best things you can do is to seek professional help. Pest control specialists offer everything from ant control to rat eradication and control.

Pest control professionals will provide you useful tips on how to effectively prevent the entry of other autumn pests into your home. They will help you identify the most common entry points, and present the methods to seal off these pest hot-spots. Plus, pest controllers will teach you about the smart practices against pest infestation for the season, such as using airtight containers for food, keeping fireplace wood away from the house, having plumbing leaks repaired, and many others. And of course, should they find a few pests cosied up in your house, they will get rid of those right away.

So, if you want your home all to your family this season, take pest control seriously. Do not let the pests that thrive in autumn find a way to share your comfortable abode. Turn to the services of pest control experts.
