Does Change of Weather Affect Outdoor Pests?

Summer time means sunshine and warm weather, which means it’s high time for mosquitoes, ticks, and other pests. But as the weather cools down, these pests can still pose a serious threat to your home. At Mosquito Joe, we’re here to help you keep your home safe from annoying and invasive pests by helping you prepare your home for cold weather. So how does a change of weather affect outdoor pests?

Outdoor Pests Are a Year-Round Threat

While you’ll see fewer mosquitoes as the weather cools down, they’re still active. As the weather begins to change, mosquitoes begin to gear up for cold weather and prepare themselves for the spring thaw. Mosquitoes can survive frigid temperatures by hibernating and lay up to 300 eggs before the weather freezes. As the spring thaw arrives and snow begins to melt, mosquito larvae thrive in standing water that accumulates from melting snow.

Other pests will look for warm places to survive cold weather, which can lead to uninvited guests in your home. Pests like ants, spiders, centipedes, and other cold-blooded pests can seek warm shelter. Basements and other cool damp places in your home are ideal places for centipedes, spiders and other pests to stay warm during winter months and thrive.

Keep Your Home Safe with Year-Round Barrier Sprays

Year-round barrier sprays for your home and yard are one of the best things you can do to keep your home free of invasive pests during cold winter months. When you schedule a perimeter barrier spray with Mosquito Joe, our highly skilled, trained technicians will put up a multi layered, long-term perimeter of protection against pests such as ants, spiders, centipedes, and millipedes. We’ll identify any nook, cranny, crack, or crevice that these pests my find their way in and eliminate any source that may allow pests to enter your home.

To keep your home protected, during each visit our technicians will inspect and identify your property for any possible breeding areas and eliminate those threats. We’ll then put a perimeter of dry bait around your home to help protect it from invasive pests, while treating any cracks in your driveway, patio, or foundation to destroy possible nesting areas. With our sprays there’s no need to worry about toxic chemicals, all of our sprays are synthetic forms of pyrethrins called pyrethroids, a natural insecticide derived from the chrysanthemum flower, which means not only do they keep out insects, but once dried, kids and pets can go outside and resume playtime.
