Being knowledgeable, prepared, and knowing who to reach out to for help is the best way to keep your home free of pests 365 days a year. Let's explore some of the pest issues that will arise throughout the year, and discover the best ways to protect your Salem home from pests year-round.

The Pests Each Season Brings

Heat, rain, and cold can be as challenging to pests as they are to us. As the climate changes, certain pests will look to your home for shelter, food, water, and protection from the elements. Let's take a look at what types of pests are common to each season.

Pests Common In Summer

Salem's warm and muggy summers bring out the most pests. All creatures tend to become more active when the weather gets warm, which means they're more likely to wander their way onto your property. Here is a list of the critters likely to present problems in the summer:

  • Boxelder Bugs

  • Fleas & Ticks

  • Rodents

  • Ants

  • Mosquitos

  • Bees

  • Hornets

  • Yellow Jackets

  • Bed Bugs

Pests Common In Fall

The mixture of favorable weather and increased moisture makes autumn a favorable season for many types of pests. Fall is the prime mating season for many critters and has increased pest activity due to winter preparation. Below is a list of pests you're likely to encounter in the fall.

  • Spiders

  • Roaches

  • Rodents

  • Ants

Pests Common In Winter

Winter's unforgiving cold forces a lot of pests to seek more favorable shelter, and unfortunately, the warmth of your Salem home is prime real estate. Here is a list of pests that may look to enter your home without paying their portion of the heating bill:

  • Rodents

  • Cockroaches

  • Termites

Pests Common In Spring

Being the bridge between winter and summer, spring gets a large variety of pests thanks to its fluctuating weather. Here are a few of the most common pets you'll encounter in spring:

  • Odorous House Ants

  • Boxelder Bugs

  • Rodents

  • Wasps

  • Termites

  • Spiders

Why Its Best To Consult A Professional For Year-Round Pest Control

Many homeowners take pest control into their own hands and try to resolve issues on a case-by-case basis. While the effort is admirable, it can leave you and your home vulnerable to future infestations. Critters such as ants, rats, and spiders are incredibly crafty and multiply quickly. This means, if you're seeing a few here and there inside your home, there's probably a nest of others that you're not seeing.

By trying to tackle pest problems on your own, chances are you're addressing the surface of the issue while a slew of problems lie underneath. By consulting a professional, you'll benefit from experts who know how to address the problem from the root and take steps to prevent future infestations.
