  • Rodents 

The notorious rats will always find a way into your home especially during winters. They want to stay at a place that is warm, solid, and has lots of food. And your home is the best estate they can take over. 

However, rodents are known to cause diseases and wreck the house causing more issues. So, always, watch out for rodents in your home during winters. 

  • Squirrels

Yes, we know they are cute and fun to watch! However, you will see them gathering food during the final days before winters start. Winter is the season when they hibernate and they can do so in your home. And you don’t want that! 

Squirrels can cause a lot of damage to your home. And if they enter the walls and die due to suffocation, it can lead to major issues. To avoid that you must call a professional pest control Collingwood company. The professionals will tell you the possible entry points for squirrels in your home. You can seal such points to avoid any issues. 

  • Spiders

Winter is the time when you might have noticed spider webs in your home. Well, this is the time when these tiny creatures mate. So, the female spider makes a web to lay her eggs. Thus, you find spider webs all-around your home. However, these can become a nuisance to your house. 

So, you must ensure that you remove these webs as frequently as possible. However, if the webs keep coming back, call a professional pest control company to remove these spider webs. pest control Collingwood

  • Bats

Another pest you can find in your attic. Bats tend to stay put in winters as the insect population decreases during this time. So, they will just stay in your warm attic.
