Freezing temperatures, wind, snow, sleet, ice…and pests inside your house! Welcome to winter in the great Northeast. While there is much to enjoy during the winter months, pests invading your home are not bringing the holiday cheer.

When it comes to winter in Upstate New York, it is important to consider potential pest issues. It’s cold outside, which means pests are seeking refuge. Your house is an ideal safe harbor for pests. In particular, rodents are a top concern.

First, it is important to think about what these rodents are looking for:

  • Shelter and Warmth
  • Food and Water

Then, it is important to think about how you can deter them by eliminating what they are looking for:

  • Seal all potential entry points into your home
  • Store food (including pet food and bird seed) in sealed containers
  • Dry out damp areas such as around pipes and in the basement
  • Eliminate clutter in the garage

For thorough rodent prevention, we recommend our Wildlife & Rodent Attention Protective System (WRAPS).
