Pests To Look Out For This Season

Posted on November 14th, 2019 by Knockout Pest

If you have noticed more pests in your home this season, you are not the only one! There is a reason for this. Keep reading to find out which pests want to make your house their home this fall and why.

Insects Are Drawn To Warmth

It is no secret that it gets colder in the fall and winter months. This is the time of year when people turn their heaters on again. Since insects are sensitive to the cold, they flock to the warmth that radiates from residential houses. 

Insects Bring Other Insects With Them

Insects have the ability to get the word out about your warm home to other insects. They can release aggregation pheromones in order to do this. That is why a large insect infestation could pop up so suddenly.

What Not To Do With An Insect Infestation

Upon spotting an insect infestation in your house, your first inclination may be to squish them. This is not the best course of action because insects can excrete an unpleasant odor as a protection mechanism. It is also not a good idea to try to wipe out this insect population with toxic substances such as pesticides. 

If you discover an insect infestation in your home this autumn, do not fret. Just turn to the professionals here at Knockout Pest Control for assistance. We can knockout pests and keep them down for the count!
