Where To Look In Your Home For Unwanted Pest This WinterMinnesotan pests love to be warm in winter, just like humans. Your home is a good place for them to do this. Pests can move into your home from the roof to crawl space in winter. They are often not detected. While some pests aren’t an issue, others can cause serious problems. For example, they can chew on electrical wires and transmit diseases to other animals. Check below to find out where you can check for pests in your winter home.

The attic: Start at the top and go up to your attic. Pests can build nests there and raise entire families without homeowners even knowing. Pests that can climb up and fly high enough to travel, including rodents and birds, are most common in attics. Common rodents found in attics are roof rats and squirrels, while sparrows and other birds are also common.

Behind walls: Overwintering is when bugs hide behind walls to make it easier for them to get into your home. Stink bugs, boxelder bugs, and ladybugs are most likely culprits. While they are not enough of a problem to require you to remove all drywall, be aware of their presence and block their entry so they don’t choose another spot next year.

The garage: Like an attic, garages offer a lot of space for pests to nest in. However, garages see less pests as people are more frequent in them, making them less attractive. Still be on the lookout for rodent droppings, colonies of termites, or ants. These can be quite common and cause problems.

Crawl space: Crawl spaces are the most common hotspot for pests, and not just during the winter. This space has all the benefits of an attic or garage (warmth and protection from the weather, nest-making debris, etc.) but without the downsides of frequent human presence. Many homeowners have lived in their home for many years without ever having to access the crawl space. Common signs of infestation include pipe, wire, or insulation damage.
