Winter is just around the corner and the cold weather is already starting to hit New England. As homeowners we are looking to make sure that our homes are ready for winter and that everyone inside will be warm and cozy this season. Unfortunately, for us humans we aren’t the only ones getting ready for winter; pests in New England are also starting to feel the chill in the air and are trying to find warm safe shelter for the winter. If you don’t properly protect your home you could find yourself becoming roommates with spiders, wildlife, rodents, pantry pests and other common invaders this winter.

Having pests in your New England home is not just a mere inconvenience to deal with; these pests can actually be quite dangerous when present in your home. Rodents and wildlife species can get into your attic spaces, behind your walls, tear through insulation and drywall, chew through wires and pipes, and destroy personal property like furniture, carpeting, books, pictures and other stored items. Their damages can lead to fires, water damage and mold issues. They may also spread their urine and feces throughout your home and can expose you and your family to diseases like Salmonella, dysentery and many others. Spiders in New England can be poisonous and because of this it is very important to realize what species is actually in your home. Also, spiders are very elusive and difficult to eliminate once they have entered your home. Pantry pests are another type of pest that can become quite problematic during this time of year. Many people are getting into their pantries and doing a lot of baking and cooking.
