Because of year-round milder temperatures in Georgia, pests can be a problem all year round. While there may be less activity in the winter months, it doesn’t mean the pests aren’t there. So before pests can cause lots of damage, get ahead of the situation now. At Pest Force, our pest treatments can treat every part of your home, from the basement to the attic and everywhere in between, to be sure pests don’t cause you problems this year.
Termite Control and Prevention
Termites can be one of the most destructive pests in Georgia, destroying anything wood in and around the home, from the structure of the house to furniture and more. Left untreated, termites can cause significant structural or foundational damage that, if left for long enough, can even cause a building to collapse. There are two types of termites that can be found in Georgia. Drywood termites live in any kind of wood structure, and subterranean termites like to live where there is moisture, like in the ground or in dead trees. Either kind can find its way into your home, so get ahead with termite prevention before it becomes a bigger problem.
Fleas and Ticks
Fleas and ticks love hiding near homes in trees and bushes. They love any kind of shady, cool area, such as under decks or porches as well. Unfortunately, pets love to find these shady areas as well, one of the reasons why they can attract fleas and ticks. Oftentimes, fleas and ticks will hitch a ride into your home on the back of your pet. Once they have entered the home, the I gestation can begin quickly, especially for fleas, as they breed quickly. They can be a real pain to get rid of. In addition to being a huge annoyance, unfortunately, fleas and ticks also carry diseases that can be harmful. So if you have pets or if you are worried about a flea or tick infestation, let professional pest control treat your home to rid them of these pests.

When Do Bugs Come Back After Winter?
It's hard to determine exactly when bugs will begin to reappear after winter, but what we do know is as soon as temperatures start to rise, they will come out. Mosquitoes, for instance, remain dormant in winter, but their eggs begin to hatch between March and May. Bees and ants will stay close to the queen in winter but also begin to emerge when the days warm up. Warmer areas may see bugs appear before winter is even over.
How Can I Prepare for Spring Bugs and Insects?
There are several things you can do as bugs begin to appear after winter. Some of the best things are to clean out your closets, clean window screens, get rid of trash like boxes and newspapers, search for cracks around the home and seal them, and look for signs of wood damage that need to be repaired.
Do You Need to Spray For Bugs in the Winter?
Wintertime is actually the best time to spray for bugs. Many bugs will search for a warmer place to call home during the cold winter months. Spraying can help keep pests outside where they belong. Warmer weather and rain can actually break down the sprays that exterminators use, but winter weather won't do that.
