When the winter months roll around, many of us breathe a small sigh of relief! Finally, we don’t have to be on constant alert for crumbs or small scraps that a pest or rodent might find appealing . . . or do we? Are we really safe from pests just because the temperatures start to drop? Here at NC Pest Control, we are sorry to say that cockroach control is as crucial during the winter months as it is during the summer.
There are a few different types of cockroaches that are typical in areas of the U.S., including right here in Fuquay-Varina, North Carolina. Although it might seem strange that cockroaches, which are a tropical species, can stay alive during the winter, these hard-to-kill creatures can find a way to survive most anywhere. For the species that can tolerate slightly cooler temperatures, they will make their way into sheds, garages, basements, crawlspaces, and other indoor areas that are seldomly occupied. Others who want the slightly warmer temperatures of the home will work to find ways within the walls, behind cabinetry or appliances, and even within drains. These pesky pests don’t need much room at all in order to work their way into a warm, safe place where they can live over winter.
If the thought of living and working alongside cockroaches gives you the heebie-jeebies, you are certainly not alone! Because cockroach control is more about keeping your home clean, we here at NC Pest Control are here to help ensure that your home is safe from cockroaches this winter with our effective pest control measures.
