Preparing Milwaukee Homes for Winter
Winter Pest Control / Prevention
Humans naturally seek shelter in adverse weather. That includes excessive cold, heat, rain, winds, or anything else Mother Nature finds fit to throw at us. It may come as no surprise to find out other animals share the shelter-seeking behavior with us.
Winter is fast approaching and temperatures are dropping, causing all sorts of animals who previously found or made adequate shelter outside of human dwellings are starting to move in. They find every crack, hole, nook, and cranny available. They crawl into these faults, and find refuge and protection from the harsh conditions of our Wisconsin winters. If these problem areas aren't taken care of before the temperature drops, you may be in for a few unwanted visitors this winter.
Finding Pests in Your Home
Many times, the only evidence you’ll have of these new cohabiters is their droppings. You’ll also probably catch a glimpse of some of the pests scurrying around. Pests will usually do their scurrying at night under the added cover of dark. However, you may find them foraging for food during daylight hours, or even at night with all your lights on. It’s extremely important to close or cover all food sources during winter, as this is when most pests will migrate indoors and have most access to your food supplies. Be sure to do your dishes shortly after eating, and make sure all your excess food particles are in a covered garbage or else washed completely down the drain. Your kitchen will be a favorite spot for late-night pests to snack.
It can be as easy as turning off your lights for a brief period of time, and then turning them back on. In that time, any unwanted pests staying in your home may have meandered out into the open. The bugs will run back to their hiding spot when you turn the lights on again. Make a note of where they ran to, and call an exterminator.

Chances are, if there’s one bug, there’s a whole colony. Possibly, just behind your wall. The colony will expand behind your wall until you take countermeasures.
