Pest Control in the Winter in St. LouisJanuary 8, 2018
St. Louis winters are unpredictable. Snow one day might be followed by spring-like temperatures the next day. One constant thing to remember is that pests have become acclimated to our winters and when they are not out & about, they are waiting for their opportunity to invade homes, seeking shelter and food.
One climate that is fairly consistent is that of the inside of our homes. Even with our recent single digit temps outside, most of us kept our homes a balmy 70 degrees. And this temperature happens to be ideal for pests like spiders, roaches, silverfish and even (eek!) bed bugs. Many of these pests actually reside inside so there’s really no “off-season” for them anyway.
Other pests, such as ladybugs & stink bugs, invade our homes in the fall where they stay nice and cozy throughout the winter just to re-emerge in the springtime. Unfortunately, they’re not too great with directions and just as many that end up back outside will also end up inside your home.
Blue Chip’s year round pest programs ensure that a constant barrier is around your home at all times of the year ensuring that no matter what time of year pests try to enter your home, they will not be successful.
Pests don’t take the winter off — and neither do we.
