Pest control in Atlanta is what we’re good at, and we’re here to help you keep your home secure from pests this holiday season.

Throughout the year, homeowners and pest control brands deal with all sorts of critters, from insects to rodents to wildlife. We’re here to teach you about the various pests we deal with here in town (even during the winter months), as well as answer the question, “What does pest control do?”

Many Pests Are Still Active Around The Holidays

Despite the cooler air and the wintering habits of insects, making them less prevalent during the winter months, there are still a number of pests to worry about this holiday season.

Several critters stay active all year-round, and some pests even get more active in the colder months in a bid to find food and warm shelter.

Take mice and rats, for example. While these species can and do thrive during the summer months, they’re not down for the count during the winter. Even in snowy cities, rats and mice have some tricks up their sleeves for surviving the colder months.

These critters are excellent at sneaking into our homes. Small creases, cracks, and crevices in a home’s structure can be an easy “in” for pests like rodents seeking a warm spot to spend the holidays. Many homeowners report seeing house mice every year once the temperature drops and these critters make a mass exodus into our homes.

A Pest Infestation Can Put A Damper On The Holiday Joy

While the holidays are usually a time of joy (and shopping anxiety) for homeowners, they can be a problem period for those suffering under the thumb of an infestation of pests.

With so much spending and anxiety that comes with the holidays, many homeowners wonder, “Is pest control worth it?” Is it possible to “wait out” an infestation?

Unfortunately, putting off that phone call to pest control may cost you even more in the long run. If the pests infesting your home have ample time to reproduce and further set up a nest or colony, they will. What once was a small, manageable infestation may now take a lot more effort to get rid of.

That’s why it’s a good idea to keep pest control services in mind the moment you notice an unwelcome pest on your property.

Practical Tips To Prevent Pests From Interrupting Your Festivities

Thankfully, we’ve got some fast and handy tips to help you keep pests out of your home this winter:

  • Clean up and wash food spills immediately.
  • Ensure all food is put away and stored securely.
  • Vacuum and clean the floors as often as possible.
  • Seal cracks and crevices in your home, such as in the walls.
  • Remove any sources of standing water – this is a huge attractor for pests!
  • Make sure garbage bins are sealed properly. Some pests have excellent noses and know to go after freely available garbage for a reliable source of food.

Keeping pests out of your home doesn’t have to be such a headache. Good preventative measures will go a long way in keeping your home free from infestations.

The Best Way To A Pest-Free Home All Year Long
