Old Man Winter is here in full effect this year! Winter weather conditions can have profound impacts on pests. Continue reading to find out what they are.
Snow & Ice
No one wants to be outside during a snow or ice storm–including pests! Since these cold conditions can threaten a pests’ chance of survival, they will seek a warm shelter. This is why it is so common for homeowners to experience pest infestations during the wintertime.
If the wind is strong enough, it can actually remove shingles from your roof. This creates the perfect window of opportunity for a bat or a raccoon to enter your home unannounced. After a powerful storm, it is a good idea to inspect your roof for missing shingles.
Last but certainly not least, rainstorms can create moisture sites in your home. This can be detrimental because moisture sites are appealing to termites. To prevent termites from calling your house their home, make sure your attics and basements do not contain any excess moisture from the rainstorm.
