The fall season is upon us, which means creative Halloween costumes and Thanksgiving gatherings and decreasing temperatures. But, what most people can relate to at this time of the year that's never talked about is increased pest activity in homes and businesses that we all can relate too. Here's a little info on which pests you're most likely to see, and in what areas of the home to be more aware of.
Ants are the most common household pests, specifically the Odorous House Ants will most likely be seen more consistently as Holiday meals and sweet treats are being prepared in the kitchen, but also in the bathrooms where moisture is present. They'll move through cracks and crevices around windows, doorway thresholds and other accessible areas.
Bedbugs, will be more noticeable by homeowners due to them being indoors more often due to cooler weather. Look for them mostly on Beds, Couches and any rooms where people rest the most.
Cockroaches typically increase in numbers, and various species like the American and Smoky Brown will slip in through cracks and crevices around doorways, utility pipes and open chimney flutes, and more if easily accessible.
