While we aren’t necessarily the most dramatic state for watching the seasons turn, these household pests are certainly maintaining a close vigil – perhaps too close to your home for comfort!
As the weather cools off and the rains begin to set in, many different types of East Texas pests will be preparing to bunk down for the winter. Some of the most common types of pests spotted during the early fall include:
- Stinging Insects
Of course, these pests aren’t just menaces in the yard. Some, including the ones on this list, are pests that are well-known for infesting Texas homes during the autumn season! Pests like these create enormous problems in the homes they choose to infest, causing property damage, physical injury, and the spread of disease. Squirrels, mice, and rats leave behind fecal matter and carrion that may maintain an active set of pathogens long after their deaths. Cockroaches are insidious creatures well-known for chewing through storage bags and infesting dry food supplies. What’s more, the threat of stinging insect attack or spider bites become more and more prevalent as the season progresses. Unless dealt with quickly, these fall-loving pests will make a dramatic entrance into your home safe.
Reducing Fall Pest Attractant Factors
There are many ways of reducing or eliminating household factors that attract heat-seeking pest populations, including:
- Cutting back on air moisture with desiccant bags and dehumidifiers
- Reducing puddling zones with proper pipe and drain care
- Practicing proper food and trash storage both inside and outside the home
- Decluttering storage spaces by stacking, sweeping, and organizing items in a methodical manner
- Sealing up potential entry points around the home. This includes paying special attention to cracks, gaps, and fissures forming in the walls and foundations of the home.
- Installing weatherproofing around the bases of doors and windows. Replace any and all screens that are physically compromised.
