With October finally here that can only mean one thing: it is the spookiest time of the year. And while you can enjoy this month by getting your scariest costume and throwing on your favorite horror movie, there is one thing you have to be on the lookout for: fall pests. These creepy crawlers will surely cause you terror if not taken care of. Here are a few Hallowen pests to keep an eye out for.
It does not need to be summer to have to worry about spiders. These eight-legged pests can sometimes be harmless, while others can possibly be venomous. Regardless of how lethal they are, the last thing you want is to have them in your home. The fall months are when they are more active, entering your home through small cracks and openings found throughout the structure.
Just because these Halloween pests are not actually vampires, that does not mean they cannot cause issues. Bats can be deadly, as they can potentially carry diseases like rabies. Even if they do not, no one wants to deal with a bat infestation. Much like spiders, they get into small crevices where they then roost with your home. Building a bat house gives them a place to do so without being in your home, where they can take care of any other pests around your property.
Rodents like mice and rats are attracted to the food that is often present during Halloween. To keep them away, make sure to store your food in airtight containers and clean up any spills or crumbs immediately. You can also use traps or call in a professional exterminator if you suspect that you have a rodent infestation.
