Winter Pests in New Jersey

When the weather gets colder, wasps, flies, ants and some other pests are nowhere to be seen. However, that doesn’t mean you’re in the clear when it comes to pest problems. These are some of the top winter pests that can cause homeowners to need Monmouth County pest control during this time of year:


Mice and rats don’t like being outside in the cold during winter. Instead, they look for the smallest of openings that allow them to make their way into residential buildings. Once they’re inside, they have easy access to food, water and shelter. Since they can spread germs, it’s important to have them eliminated.


Spiders stay busy throughout the year. While this can result in fewer bugs inside your home in winter thanks to spiders’ appetites, it also means that you have to watch out for spiders lurking around this time of year.


Squirrels, bats and other wildlife look for warm places to spend winter. In some cases, this can end up being attic spaces and other home interiors. These critters can damage homes as they make holes in order to get inside, where they can stay warm all winter long.
