Do You Really Need Pest Prevention in the Winter?
According to the National Pest Management Association, Americans spend more than $4 billion per year just to get rid of pests, and pests invade an estimated 21 million homes in the United States every winter. These pests bring with them a host of bacteria and disease that they will leave everywhere they go. They eat from our kitchen pantries and trash cans. They drink from faucets and pet dishes, and they rest in the walls, basements, and crawl spaces. Unlike hibernating pests, roaches, mice, and rats will nest and breed all year long right under your nose. For pest prevention results that will last, contact your Cordova pest prevention experts, AAA Termite and Pest Control.
What are the Different Ways to Prevent Pests in Winter?
- Exclusion – A pest control technician will make recommendations to minimize or eliminate entry points such as reseal doors or windows with new weather stripping and seal cracks or holes in your home or along the foundation. The exclusion method helps prevent pests from initially entering your home or business.
- Sanitation – The key in this scenario is to eliminate what the pests are in search of by keeping your home clean, vacuum the floors and upholstered furniture regularly, take out the trash often, avoid leaving dirty dishes in the sink, keep food sealed properly, and avoid clutter in your home.
- Baits – Baits or non-toxic glue boards can be used as an effective form of pest control, and are typically ideal for eradicating an infestation of cockroaches or rats.
- Pesticides – The final option to get rid of pests is to use chemical pesticides routinely.
Are Winter Pest Prevention Methods Safe?
Many are hesitant to get professional pest control help because they fear harmful chemicals. These people wait too long for pest control help or try to solve the problems on their own. This often results in the improper use of pesticides! For winter pest control and prevention in Cordova and Memphis, AAA Termite and Pest Control are the experienced professionals you need. We use safe products to rid your home or business of pests. Also, we are mindful of the placement of our products such as not saturating areas where kids or pets play, or we can apply these products in a way that prevents or minimizes their contact.

For most pest control services we provide, our solutions are safe and non-toxic to kids and pets, but we will be sure to inform you if we need to use a stronger solution or if necessary safety protocols need to be enforced.
