Pest control is something you can wait until summer to deal with, right? Wrong! Here's why winter is high time to get to work

Here at Solutions Pest & Lawn, we know a thing or two about infestations. You’re probably well aware that the summer months with their beautiful, warm weather days that allow you to fling open you windows come at the cost of unwanted houseguests. Anything from creepy crawlers to fuzzy creatures, who might be cute if you came across them outside or securely in a cage, have a knack for worming their way in through open windows and small cracks and holes in the exterior of your house. However, the cold months come with their fair share of unwelcome invaders. These warm blooded critters would like nothing more than to snuggle up in the warm, sheltered nooks of your house.


The types of pests that you may have to deal with during the winter time are raccoons, mice, and rats. Since the cold weather brings with it decreased bug activity, these months are the ideal time to check out those hard to reach spaces such as crawl spaces, basements, and attics and fix problems before the visitors start moving in. A good way to prevent infestations is to block openings. Our Stuff-It Copper Mesh is ideal for this, because it keeps out rats, mice, birds, bats, as well as pesky insects.
