Do you think during wintertime pests go into hibernation or fly south? Just because there are less mosquitoes and wasps, that doesn’t mean the other bothersome insects and pests are willing to disappear during the cold season. Infact, pest control in the cold season is just as essential as summer time.
As the temperature drops, many harmful insects and rodents are seeking for warm places, they need to find a safe, warm place with a source of food to survive the frozen weather and to breed. keep in mind that insects are cold-blooded creatures, that means they just don’t die during cold times, they just slow down to save energy. Once they find an acceptable warm environment full of nutrients they will come back to life again. And guess what? Your kitchen might be the best place to colonize.

As same as uncovered food, uncovered trash will be the most back to life fancy meal. Always seal your trash inside or outside the house and never forget to take your trash out every night.

Before wintertime, make sure to seal your outside wall cracks, seal your doors, screen vents to chimneys.
