Their hair, urine and feces can cause various diseases, including allergies and asthma. In addition, mice can become infected with ticks or fleas and bring these parasites into the home where they can affect people or pets. Mice can also cause significant damage to structures and property through their biting actions. In fact, 25% of unexplained house fires in the United States are caused by rodents gnawing on wiring.

Fact or Fiction: Pest control is not required in winter

DON’T MAKE IT UP! Indoors are where dozens of pests occur during the winter. Insects and rodents try to escape the harsh elements of winter, when temperatures drop too low, just like us. . Insects are cunning creatures that have learned various ways to survive the cold winter months.

Fact or fiction: Pests die in winter

DON’T MAKE IT UP! Most insect populations will decline and be very low during the winter months. In order to survive, the insects will hibernate in various stages as eggs until the temperature starts to rise again – signaling that it is time to wake up and hatch. Some insects will also undergo diapause, essentially hibernation, which begins when daylight hours shorten and temperatures begin to drop. An insect in diapause uses only a fraction of its normal energy and stores it in body fat all winter. Another amazing feature of insects is their ability to survive in freezing temperatures by producing glycerol in their bodies. Glycerol production in insects is like antifreeze in a car, allowing insects to supercool and survive extreme winter conditions.

One way insects overwinter is by hiding in tree holes, under bark and leaves, or even under the surface of the soil to avoid cool temperatures until the weather becomes more favorable. When these places are not available, many insects turn to the inside of our homes for protection, where there are too many cracks and holes for an insect to survive the cold months.
