Top 3 Winter Pests in Florida

pest control in the winter orlando floridaAs the temperature drops in Central Florida, it’s not uncommon to find more pests and wildlife seeking shelter. Due to Florida’s warmer winter climate, many unwanted visitors have adapted to moving into people’s homes for shelter.

Ants

These critters are no strangers to Florida’s warm climate. While one tiny ant may not seem like a big problem, it won’t be long before it quickly turns into one. It’s important to act fast when dealing with an ant problem before it gets worse and becomes an infestation. If you see a few ants, it’s a likely sign that there are more hidden away in your home. Make sure you keep spaces like your kitchen counters and dining table clean of crumbs. You can also help with prevention by using a cleaner with a lemon scent, the smell deters ants from entering that area.

Silverfish

If you’ve ever seen a bug scurry across your bathroom or kitchen and wondered, “What was that thing?”, you’ve likely seen a silverfish. Silverfish can be hard to control because they are nocturnal and can go long periods of time without any food. They are likely to be found in dark moist areas of your home. To prevent silverfish from infesting your Florida home, be sure to deprive these pests of food by keeping any eating areas clean and tidy.

Cockroaches

Cockroaches are not particular and can find typically shelter just about anywhere inside your home. They can hide in a range of places from light fixtures, behind baseboards, and even picture frames. Not only are cockroaches a nuisance but they’re also harmful to your health. Cockroaches are known to contaminant food they come in contact with by secreting bacteria-filled saliva. This can actually cause illnesses such as food poisoning, diarrhea, and can also cause allergic reactions in some people.
