While we’d all like to believe cold weather scares away insects, that isn’t always the case. Oftentimes, they actually hide from the cold by coming into your home. Today we’re going to take a look at what pests to watch out for in winter, and how you can stop them from bugging you. A
In the fall, asian beetles can get in between your home’s walls to hibernate. You might not see them much during winter, but they are likely to emerge in early spring and become a nuisance.
Boxelder bugs will take cover in homes and other buildings when the season changes from fall to winter. To prevent an infestation inside your home, the time to treat boxelder bugs is in the fall when they are present on the outside of your house, but sometimes you might not notice them until they are already in your house.
Centipedes don’t hibernate in winter, but they do look for shelter inside where temperatures are warmer. You might often find them around your house when it’s dark. They also look for moisture, which means they are commonly found in bathrooms near sinks, showers and toilets.
