Jingle Bugs: A Comprehensive Guide To Holiday Pest Management


The most highly anticipated time of year is finally here. The holiday season is when you gather with friends and family while you eat good food and enjoy each other's company. While this time of year is usually the time when homeowners have the most guests, there are some guests who will try to come into your home even though they didn't get an invasion. 

We are talking about unwanted pests. At Combat Pest Control, we know how frustrating and embarrassing it can be to have unwanted animals crawling through your Plymouth home. Our Plymouth pest control specialists know how to ensure only guests who received an invitation will come into your home this holiday season. 

Santa's Little Helpers: Common Holiday Pest To Watch Out For

Many types of pests hibernate through the winter. However, several may seek shelter during the winter, which is called overwintering. At Combat Pest Control, our pest control service experts have been dealing with several types of overwintering pests in Plymouth, including:

  • Spiders

  • Rodents

  • Termites

  • Ants

  • Cockroaches

Many pests our pest control company has to deal with are more than just a nuisance. Many of them can contaminate your food and the air in your home and spread various dangerous diseases. Other pests, such as rodents and termites, are capable of causing extreme damage to your home and will continue to destroy your house throughout the winter months. 

Decking The Halls Without Inviting Pests: Pre-Holiday Preparation

Most pests that come into your home during the holiday season are looking for a warm place to stay. They are also likely to be hungry and thirsty as the food and water supply almost completely vanishes from their natural habitat this time of year. 

The first thing that you should do to keep pests away from your home is to make sure that there are no potential entry points around your house. Inspect the outside of your home and look for small gaps and cracks around doors, windows, and other areas. If you see any, use weather stripping or caulking to seal them immediately. 

The most effective way to keep pests away from your home is to consult a pest control company near you.  A professional will have extensive knowledge about whatever type of pests are in your home. They will also be able to give you customized advice on preventing any more pests from coming into your home. 

Pest-Free Cooking For Festive Feasts: Holiday Kitchen Hygiene

Most pests that come into your home enjoy eating all types of food, including human and pet food. When cooking this holiday season, try to clean up messes as soon as they happen. Make sure to wipe any spills immediately. After all cooking has finished, make sure that you completely clean your kitchen as well as the dining room and other areas where you handled food. 

If you open a dry food package, like flour or sugar, make sure to place all of the remaining contents in a sealable, airtight container. If you are seeing any pests in your home this holiday season, make sure to contact an emergency pest control company before you start cooking your meal.
