Common Pest Around Holiday Season

If you didn’t already know there are many pest that want to spend time with you during Christmas. And just in time to give your family members a spook! Whether it be a spider hanging out in the Christmas tree of a trail of ants making their way to the cookies left for Santa, the holiday season is prime time for having more guest than you intended. Take a look at the top pest that will, without proper precautions be snuggling up with you during these winter months.

  • Rodents: You have heard of mice and rats getting into homes, but do you know how dangerous they are? Rodents can carry several different diseases and parasites which they can spread to both humans and pets. They also are also extremely destructive and known to chew holes through walls, sever electrical wiring, and gnaw through utility piping.
  • Spiders: Although not all spider are dangerous, enough are to cause concern. Spiders like the brown recluse and black widow pose a considerable threat to homeowners, especially young children, the elderly, and people with preexisting medical conditions. No one likes finding spiders in their homes, regardless of whether or not they are dangerous. 
  • Ants: Less harmful than spiders and rodents, but much more annoying, ants are another common winter pest. Around Christmas, ants sneak into homes to find food. When they do this, they can transport diseases such as Salmonella onto eating and food preparation surfaces as well as onto food itself, potentially making your family very sick.
