With bitterly cold temperatures expected this winter, homeowners in NJ might end up with a pest infestation in their home. Knowing when to call a NJ exterminator for help and which pests to expect this season can help homeowners be prepared.
Shelter from the Cold
Mice, rats, and other pests need to find dry, warm places to go when winter weather turns cold. While some find shelter outdoors, others try to get inside homes. When pests get inside your home, they can build nests, reproduce, and become a headache. In some cases, pests can be a health hazard or damage property.
Before cold weather arrives, ticks can still be a problem for NJ residents. These pests can stick around outside until colder temperatures move into the area. This can put you and your family at risk of tick bites, which can transmit diseases, such as Lyme disease.
Pest Treatment and Prevention
When mice or other pests invade, have an exterminator handle them. This helps ensure that pest infestations are thoroughly dealt with, which helps lower the risk of more pest problems. To prevent pests from getting in, keep your floors, counters, and other surfaces clean. Look for gaps around windows, doors, and other areas, and seal them up to stop mice and other pests from getting into your home.
