Common Winter Pests

Posted on December 16th, 2020 by Knockout Pest

The official start of winter will be here before you know it! Instead of hibernating for the season, some pests escape the cold altogether by residing in homes. Continue reading to discover which pests seek shelter in houses during the cold months ahead.


If you have noticed gnaw marks on your electrical wires or tiny droppings scattered around your home, you may have an infestation of mice on your hands. Fortunately, there are certain steps you can take to prevent this from happening in the first place. Be sure to seal cracks with steel wool and keep your house clean on a regular basis. 


In addition to mice, rats may also try to call your house their new home this season. It is important to check your basement and attic for rats, as these areas provide the perfect conditions and materials for nesting. Luckily, you can keep rats out of your home by filling any gaps on the exterior of your home with caulk. 


Santa is not the only one who could come down your chimney this month! After all, raccoons can easily gain access to your home through the chimney. That is why it is so crucial to have a chimney cap installed.
