As the weather is starting to cool down a bit, the seasonal change can bring about new activities in the pests around your neighborhood. The moderate weather gives us a nice break after the hot summer months, and it is also a time when insects and rodents are looking for new areas to call home.

Even if you don’t see evidence of a bug infestation, it’s smart to call professional pest control services for a routine check. You might be surprised what they find – a few small interventions right now can go a long way to prevent bigger issues when the weather gets cooler.

Where are Pests Getting Inside?

The change in temperature means that insects and rodents get creative in looking for ways to get to a more comfortable living environment. Even though we don’t experience extreme cold weather in this area of California, the cooler temps can cause these critters to seek warmth and food.

How are pests gaining access to your home? Identifying the weak points right now can stop the problem before it starts. Common areas that pests enter include:

  • Broken window seals
  • Gaps under the external doors
  • Cracks in external walls
  • Through the subflooring of your property
  • Holes where wires and cables are running
  • Sewage and drainage pipes
  • Storage areas, such as sheds and garages

Even the tiniest space can be enough for a small rodent or insect to squeeze inside!

Secure Your Home Against Insects and Rodents

You don’t need to invite pests to move in for the season. Instead, be proactive about sealing the gaps and eliminating sources of food and water. If your home is not easy to access, then the pests will move on to find another place to live.
