The chill of winter can have an impact on your pest control needs. In fact, the cold can motivate pests to seek the warmth and shelter that only a home can provide. Keep reading to uncover different ways to avoid a pest infestation during the wintertime.
Remove Snow & Ice From The Roof
Some homeowners do not clear the snow and ice that has amassed on the roof after a snowstorm. Unfortunately, this can damage your roof and make it more vulnerable to a pest infestation. You can prevent this scenario from happening altogether by removing the snow and ice accumulations.
Steer Clear Of Frozen Pipes
It is no secret that freezing temperatures can also lead to frozen pipes within your home’s plumbing system. When these pipes eventually burst, the water damage that results can make your home even more enticing to pests. To avoid this, be sure to have your plumbing pipes insulated.
Repair Cracks In The Foundation
Did you know that it is possible for ice to cause problems in your home’s foundation? If you notice cracks in the foundation, it is imperative to have this remedied as soon as possible. Not only can these cracks open the door to unwanted pests; they can also compromise the structural integrity of your house.
