Shifting Seasons and Fall Invaders

The seasons are changing but not as quickly as we’re used to. This year, we had a cooler spring that lasted later than normal. In turn the warmth of summer has been sticking around later into the fall. What does this mean for you and your home? Many of the fall pests Patton Termite & Pest Control is used to seeing are delayed and just now coming out. Instead of seeing a decrease in bugs and insects as winter months approach, you’ll be seeing them in your home. Patton is ready to take care of invaders and treat your house or business to prevent them in the future.

Treat for Clover Mites NOW

For many people, spring pests are a thing of the past. The headache of a clover mite infestation isn’t worrisome for most in autumn, but Patton has them front of mind. The best time to treat for unwanted spring bugs and insects is actually right now. The best protection you can offer your home or business is to create a perimeter barrier around the  building. Treatments throughout the fall and winter will prevent overwintering clover mites from finding their way behind your siding once the weather begins to warm up again.

Insects Like a Cozy Home Too

Alongside protecting your home from future pests, it’s important to protect it from very present insects and bugs this fall. Largely, garden spiders and wasps are going to start searching for a warm place to overwinter soon. Every fall Patton Termite & Pest Control receives calls about wasps popping up inside of homes. Many times, the wasps find their way down fireplace flues and get trapped inside. One way to prevent this from happening is to make sure to screen the chimney to prevent wasps from entering.
