The logical answer might be to say spring or summer. After all, these are the times when the majority of destructive pests species are active. However, the truth is, even though the cold weather eliminates the majority of outdoor pests, it can sometimes increase the chances of a invasive infestation in your home.
So why does cold weather increase pest invasions?
While the outdoor temperature may be too cold for a pest population to survive, your warm home remains an ideal environment for pests to thrive and grow. This can lead many pest species to invade homes seeking warmth and shelter from the cold. These types of infestations often begin in secluded areas such as crawlspaces, basements, or ventilation. Throughout the winter, a large pest population can develop in your home, and since many people stop having regular inspections and treatment from pest providers during this time, such infestations often grow unchecked. Thus when warm weather returns, homeowners will sometimes find themselves facing a large, developed infestation seemingly out of nowhere. This problem is further complicated if, during the winter, your home suffers any type of water damage, structural decay, or any other issue. Oftentimes these types of problems are not found until warmer weather and spring cleaning arrive, and due to this pests can often exploit these types of conditions to gain access to your home.
