Ahhhh, fall. When the leaves start to change colors and temperatures begin to drop, the fall season can feel like one of the most inviting times of the entire year. The change of seasons also can be inviting to some unwelcome houseguests—like pests. At AAA Termite and Pest Control, we want to make sure you aware of the four most likely pests that may try and infest your home, yard, or business in Memphis this fall.

  1. Flies

You may think of flies as more of an annoyance during the summer, but they actually hit peak activity in the fall. This is because they spend summer breeding. When temperatures start to drop, houseflies and fruit flies alike will seek out the interior of your home or business, where it’s warmer.

  1. Rodents

As mammals, mice, rats, and other rodents also are going to look for a cozy spot to spend the winter. Attics, walls, basements, crawlspaces, closets, and pantries all are popular hiding places for these creatures. If you identify any droppings or hear scratching sounds that seem to be coming from inside a wall, call the professionals at AAA Termite and Pest Control as soon as possible.

  1. Ants

Many homeowners find ants in their kitchen at some point during the summer, but when the weather starts to turn colder, an entire ant colony might try to seek a new home—inside yours—to get away from the chilly temperatures. This applies to all varieties of ants: carpenter ants, sugar ants, pavement ants… even fire ants.

  1. Insects

What do stink bugs, ladybugs, and spiders have in common? They’re all much more likely to infiltrate your home or attempt to during the fall. A little prevention can go a long way; make sure windows remain closed, and seal any cracks in the walls or windows with caulk to minimize the number of entry points where these pests can access the interior.
