At a glance, it makes sense that insects and other pests would go away during the winter months. 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.
Here at EcoCare Pest Control, we get a lot of questions about insects and other pests. Some of them are very common, and some of them are just downright weird. Because these aren’t your usual everyday questions, we thought it’d be fun to devote some time to answer some of the more off-the-wall questions we get from time to time. Here goes!
It’s that time of year when we get together with friends and family to celebrate the holidays and ring in the new year. But it’s also the time of year when pests of all sorts find their way into our homes, potentially disrupting your festivities.
Of all the pests that might invade your home, perhaps no other creature strikes more fear into the heart than snakes. Here in Maryland, there are a few snakes that are indeed dangerous. And while it’s rare to see them in your house, it can happen from time to time. Here are a couple of snakes to both look out for and stay clear of.
Maryland winters can be highly unpredictable. Some years, it’s like we’re living in a frozen, snowy wasteland. Other years, it’s like winter in Florida. Depending on the weather and temperatures, the types of bugs you might see in and around your house can vary. For example, in past years, milder winters have resulted in early appearances of stink bugs and odorous house ants.
