Winter Services

Smart Pest Solutions provides winter services between the months of December through March. Our residential clients generally receive one treatment during this time, unless there is a need for more.

Why are winter services so important? Obviously, pests are not as active during the winter months, but inside of your warm home specific pest populations still remain active. Spiders are probably the pest that you may notice most. However, box elder bugs and Asian beetles may over-winter in attics and other areas. Mice are obviously another pest that invade residential homes in the winter. Also, checking the attics in this season is a great opportunity to survey if there is bat activity in your home.

Having a pest management program that addresses client’s needs throughout the year is important. This is true because keeping pest populations low is the key to quality pest management. If pest populations rise in a home, more products/chemicals need to be used in order to eliminate populations. However, if your home is monitored and serviced regularly we have the opportunity to continually access your property and treat it as needed.
