All outdoor pests don’t just die when winter comes. Overwintering pests will find a place to go dormant, such as in your leaves, mulch, or even inside your home. Our Winter Protection Planis a fantastic way to prevent these little bugs from being able to survive in your yard. The professionals at Mosquito Squad of West St. Louis will apply a mixture of the traditional barrier treatment with a granular across your lawn, reducing the ability of these pests to find a hiding place for winter.
What Types of Insects Survive in The Winter?
The bugs that live throughout the winter are called overwintering insects. They find places that are sheltered from the weather and stay in a dormant state. These bugs can include fleas, ticks, wasps, pill bugs, stink bugs, asian lady beetles, and spiders. If they can find a way into your home, they will wait out winter inside, and this can become a massive issue for you when winter ends, and spring shows its face again.
What are the Benefits of the Winter Protection Plan?
Spring is a beautiful time of year that most of us tend to enjoy. However, do you like the pests that come back out when the weather is beginning to break from winter? How about signing up for the Winter Protection Plan from Mosquito Squad of West St. Louis County? This will ensure that your spring can be enjoyed to the fullest extent without the massive amount of bugs returning to life for the beautiful weather. Since these pests can be hiding inside your home or in your yard, it could be a double headache when spring hits with a plethora of annoying little bugs coming out of nowhere.
What Can I do to Prevent Overwintering Insects from My Home and Property?
You can reduce the chances of these bugs invading your home by following a few simple steps.
1. Check the outside of your home for any cracks or openings where the insects can enter, and you can fill any spots with caulk.
