Winter’s officially here, and if you haven’t made any serious efforts to prevent pest infestations, you could face a significant problem (if you aren’t already). The good news is that even now, when it’s cold out, and your home is warm and inviting to creepy crawlies, you can take some steps to protect yourself against pests.

The temperature dropping below freezing and burying the great outdoors in a heavy layer of snow seems like a surefire way to rid your surroundings of critters. But belief in such a tidy solution is wrong, and resting on your laurels until next March will come back to bite you. Here’s the lowdown on what pests to look out for over the winter.
