Common Winter Pests in Arizona

Common Winter Pests in Arizona

For many, winter is a nice break from problem summer pests like bees, wasps, scorpions, and ticks. Unfortunately, just because the weather is a little cooler doesn’t mean pest problems have disappeared. Instead, with the change of season comes an entirely different type of pest. What pest problems could invade your winter this year? Take a look. 

Insects

Despite the cooler weather, insects can still be a huge problem for many Arizona homeowners. Some of the most common issues Arizona homeowners see during the winter months are termites, ants, and cockroaches. Many people who call for termite pest control don’t realize that they work just as well in the winter as they do in the summer seasons. While you may not notice them, they’re out there, so have a termite inspection on a regular basis to prevent any serious issues. Termites, though, aren’t the only problem you might notice from insects in the winter.

Those who call for ant pest control may notice that the cooler temperatures have driven ants indoors, and once they’re inside, they can be tough to get rid of. While keeping things clean can help, your best bet is to contact professional assistance. Cockroaches are another common winter pest control problem. They can carry serious pathogens throughout your home, and if you’ve seen one, you already have a problem. A DIY “bomb” off a shelf will just drive them into your walls, creating additional issues. Instead, call for professional help immediately. 

Arachnids

Imagine this scenario – you wake up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom, and while you’re in there, something crawls across your barefoot. You look down – it’s a huge spider! Spider pest control never stops in Arizona, not even during the cooler winter months. In fact, it’s during these colder winter months that spiders like the black widow and brown recluse would love to make their home in a secluded space inside yours. Both can pose a real health risk, so calling for professional spiders pest control help is an absolute must. 

Rodents

The one thing few people want to see in their home is a rodent, but during the winter months in Arizona, it’s incredibly common to need the help of a rodent pest control service. Millions of homeowners are invaded by rats and mice during those cooler months because these creatures are looking for a safe, warm space to hide until the weather gets nicer. Mice and rats need an incredibly small space to squeeze into your home, and once they’re in, they’ll reproduce on a near-constant basis. Rats pest control, though, is easy to find, and often once you take care of the problem initially, you can have your pest control team help you locate any problem areas so you’ll never experience a rodent infestation again.
