It is that time of year again. Fall has made its presence known and winter is already starting to show what it has in store for us this year. The last cold front came through and it brought some very, very cold temperatures with it. You may not have noticed yet but when the temperatures drop all of the pests that call the outside world home, see your home as a warm and toasty oasis. For pests the cold weather is not simply a matter of discomfort. It is a matter of life and death and all of these creatures both large and small will do whatever it takes to survive.
Rodents Are Smarter Than You Think
You may think your home is a virtually impenetrable fortress, but it is not. Rodent pests like small mice and large rats are smarter than you may think. Remember, to them this is a matter of life and death. They either stay outside and freeze to death or they will do whatever it takes to get inside your home where they will take up residence for the entire winter.
At first, you won’t even notice they are there. Rats and mice are good about making themselves unknown. They come out late at night while everyone is asleep and sneak tiny morsels of food, but these little morsels will not be enough to satisfy their immense appetites. They must find more food and they sure will. They will find all of your food in your cupboards. They will silently nibble holes in boxes and pack their little cheeks full and you will never know until you pick that box up and it spills all over the floor!
