Have you ever heard the term “overwintering pests” but aren’t quite sure what it means? Today we will change that!

Overwintering pests hide in warm places when the weather outside turns cold and then they reemerge again in the spring when it starts to get warm outside. Overwintering pests are commonly seen inside homes during the fall (when they start coming inside) and in the spring (when they come out from hiding).

Common overwintering pests include:

Stink bugs
Boxelder bugs
Cluster flies
Home exclusion is a great way to help prevent these pests from coming inside. If they can’t find a way in, then they will have to go somewhere else. If you do experience an infestation of overwintering pests, there are effective treatment options to eradicate them.
