It’s certainly cold here in middle Tennessee. Temperatures may be tolerable during the day, but nighttime temperatures are dipping below freezing. Does this mean that bugs will freeze and die? Nope! Contrary to what most people believe, bugs don’t really die off during the cold winter. Instead, they find their way indoors, and their choice of shelter just may be your home or business.

Pest control service provided in the Nashville area at Ameri Care Services wants you to know these six reasons why winter pest control is a must. Spiders such as black widows, ants, cockroaches, mice, termites, fleas, and the like may be scarcely seen this time of year, but trust us when we say these pests are still lurking where your eyes can’t see.

  1. Insects seek shelter

When the weather turns cold, bugs, spiders, roaches, and more seek shelter inside. That may be a shed, underground, or inside your home or business. Some insects will even hideout under your flooring or inside of your walls where you can’t see them, only to emerge when it is time to find something to eat. So, although you may not see bugs often, they could be hiding out where you don’t see them.

  1. They can survive indoors

Since termites, roaches, spiders, and the like can’t take the cold, they do however find it pleasantly inviting to set up camp inside your home or business where the temperatures are nice and warm all season long.

  1. Attics provide shelter

If your home has an attic space, wasps, spiders, and even mice may prefer to hang out in there to keep warm throughout the winter. You may not worry too much about pests in your attic, but you should, because they can easily find their way into the rest of your house or cause damage to anything you have stored in your attic.

  1. Rodents look for entry points

Mice and other small rodents can enter your home through the tiniest opening or crack in your home or building. You should regularly inspect the areas around doors and windows, and where wires or pipes enter the structure. These are common areas for mice or other pests to gain access inside.
