Some Common Fall Pests To Watch Out For
Just which pests should you be on the lookout for this fall? Wildwoods Pest Control encourages you to watch for the following pests to avoid an infestation.
These nocturnal pests love to live and feed in the dark, and that can make it challenging to know if you have an infestation or not. While seeing a live cockroach is a sure sign you could have an infestation on your hands, you may notice other signs before you see them at all. There are other things you could look for as signs of a cockroach infestation. Cockroach droppings look similar to coffee grounds or black pepper. Cockroaches could also bring on an unusual odor, such as a strong oily smell, or a musty odor. Cockroaches also lay eggs in egg casings, which are small, white, oval-shaped eggs in hidden locations.

Ants love moisture, and there is surely plenty of that in the Portland and Vancouver area during the fall and winter. Odorous house ants, also known as sugar ants, will continue laying eggs until late fall. Carpenter ants remain active as well. The most obvious sign of an ant infestation is actually seeing the ants in your home. With a carpenter ant infestation, you may notice rustling noises inside your walls. piles of wood shavings under wooden items, or large, winged ants emerging from hidden crevices.

Spiders are a year-long concern in the Pacific Northwest, and they are more likely to move indoors when the weather gets colder. This is not necessarily so that they can stay warm, but rather because food sources outside become limited in the fall. The warning signs of spiders are fairly common. Depending on the species, you may actually spot them around the inside and outside of your home. If you have noticed an increased amount of spiderwebs indoors or outdoors, it might be time to call Wildwoods Pest Control.

Stink Bugs and Box Elder Beetles
Box elder beetles and stink bugs both tend to be the worst in spring and fall. During the fall, both of these insects are drawn to the warmth of your home. Box elder beetles and stink bugs like to forage into homes around siding, weep vents, attic soffits, and any other cracks or crevices. This is where they will spend the winter and, if undisturbed, emerge again in the spring. If you notice either insect near your home this fall, call on Wildwoods Pest Control to exterminate stink bugs and box elder beetles before they infest your home over the winter.
