With the fall season upon us you could be dealing with great weather and beautiful colors. The season is also the start to all the upcoming holidays such as Halloween. It is the kick off to the holidays and although it is a holiday to dress up and trick or treat, many people choose to decorate and try and scare their guests as well. One of the ways to do that is to use decorations that are known to cause a scare for passersby and that happens to be pests! There are some pests that are a big deal this fall season. The weather has cooled off by the time Halloween has come up and that means that the pests are looking for a way out of the cold and into some place much warmer; like homes and commercial buildings.

Common Halloween Pests & How to Get Rid of Them

Bed Bugs Are Real Life Blood Suckers:
If you want to think about something that brings you to the real spirit of Halloween, it is Dracula. The thing that is scary about Dracula, and defines him, is the fact that he wants to suck your blood! A vampire is not a real thing to worry about in your life but there is a real blood sucker that can be living in your home. Bed bugs are a huge problem and they can be found in all kinds of homes across the US. They hide in the fabric of your mattress or home and come out at night to feed. Bed bugs attach to the exposed skin on your body and feed on your blood until they are full. They are an extremely hard pest to get rid of. That’s why it is necessary to hire a professional that has experience in treating bed bugs.
How to Get Rid of Spiders & Webs:
Another go to for homes and families to help give your home a spooky look is to use artificial webs and spiders. You know that when you walk into a web that is real, it causes a real panic so the mimicking of that same situation around your home for your visitors can bring that terror out. Although people use artificial spiders to scare people, you don’t have to look far for the real things. Spiders are out in the fall looking for a place to build their web, and to live and breed. You want to be sure that you have your home treated for these unwanted arachnids so that the only spiders around are your artificial ones!
Rodent Control Services: There is nothing scarier than coming around the corner to find a rodent standing in your path. You can go to a Halloween store and find an entire area that is dedicated to rodents such as mice and rats that can be set out to add a fear factor to your home. The problem is that you may think you see one moving around and it could be a real rodent. Fall is the exact time for rodents to start to find a warmer place to make their nest. That place is often times your home! To have your home rid of rodents, give a pest control company a call to come out and treat it for you.
