Active Pests in the Fall

Summer isn’t the only time that effective pest control is a necessity. Many people do not realize this, but fall is also a season when pests are fairly active. As summer winds down and the colder weather sets in, pests are looking for areas to stay safe and warm. It’s no wonder that these pests choose to settle down in your home - you provide them a warm environment, coupled with an all-you-can-eat buffet that they can not resist! In order to effectively avoid pest infestations this fall, learn about the active pests today.


Did you know that termites are active throughout the entire year, including fall? These bugs don’t ever take a break! They are all about eating and reproducing 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This is why termite colonies get so big, and why an exterminator should be called in as soon as termites are suspected. Termites are not usually visible in the fall, so an inspection might be needed to accurately detect their presence. You can save yourself thousands of dollars of damage with preventative termite control before infestations get out of hand.


Like termites, rodents are also a year-round dilemma in Georgia. However, most people don’t see rodents until the fall season rolls around. This is when rodents move nests and start scrambling for food sources. Rodents can not only cause damage to electrical wiring within your home, they also carry diseases. It is always a good idea to call in the professionals if rodents are seen or if their droppings are present. It is hard to effectively eliminate these pests without professional help.


Fleas can be brought into your home by pets or rodents. Flea bites are itchy and can be problematic for people with flea allergies. They are stubborn pests that can be very difficult to get rid of on your own. Oftentimes repeated bombings and sprayings are unsuccessful and can be harmful to members of the household. Professional assistance is often needed to get rid of these unwelcome guests once and for all.
