Summer is finally coming to an end and for many home owners so is the fight against summer pests like mosquitoes and other annoying insects that seem to thrive during the hot temperatures. While it is true that a great deal of insects disappear during the cooler times of the year, it is also a time when other pests begin to thrive and search for food and shelter, which are both usually found within the walls of your home. While fall is an exciting time of year to watch football, enjoy cooler temperatures and get back to school, it is also a time when you should be preparing your home for a new wave of insects and pests that are ready to make your home their new breeding ground.

Pest Free Living Solutions During Fall

Getting Rid of Rats & Mice in your House During Fall Time

Your home makes the perfect retreat for these filthy rodents to hide out in. Mice and rats pose serious health threats to you and your family due to the dangerous bacteria that they carry around with them. They can also chew through electrical wiring, insulation and other materials, causing a significant amount of damage to your home.

Fall Stink Bugs

Stink bugs do not carry any harmful diseases with them, but they do emit a very potent stench when they feel threatened. Stink bugs tend to hide out in cars or other areas, waiting to latch onto to something that will get them inside of your home. It is a good idea to always check your belongings before bringing them inside. Bed bugs are also notorious hitch hikers that will latch onto almost anything and anyone. Bed bugs are excellent at hiding throughout the day time, then coming out at night to latch onto a host and suck the blood until they are full. Bed bugs are extremely difficult to get rid of once they have established a hiding spot inside of your home. These and other pests can be permanently eliminated with help from Bio-Tech Pest Control.
