Fall is here and now is the time when insects and rodents are looking for new harborage.
September often brings rain and cooler nights. Insects and rodents recognize the change in the weather, so they are busy stockpiling food and building shelter for the cooler days ahead.
In Fall, we typically see an increase in rodent activity, silverfish, carpenter bee, earwig, cockroach, and bedbugs inside homes.
September is also prime time for flies and gnats so expect to see increased spider activity around lights/windows.
On the outside, we find increased activity in marmorated stink bugs, honeybees, mole cricket, armyworm, Asian lady beetle, and various species of moths. If you have cabbage in your garden, watch out for the Cabbage Looper this time of year.
Exclusion is key to preventing insects and rodents from harboring inside your home. Now is the time to touch up caulking, fix door jambs/thresholds, and replace damaged weatherstripping. Clean the gutters to remove leaf buildup as insects love to nest in them.
