Cold Weather & Winter Pests - Cold Weather & Winter Pests

In Southeast Louisiana, cooler weather means a break from some of our most popular pests. Mosquitoes, roaches, and other "warm weather" pests tend to be less of an issue in cooler temperatures, so many people forget that there are other pests which become more troublesome during cooler weather.

Common Winter Pests

Most pests can be a problem year-round, but you may notice more problems with these winter pests when temperatures are low:

  • Mice
  • Rats
  • Squirrels
  • Birds
  • Bats
  • Fleas
  • Bed Bugs
  • Spiders

Keeping Pests Out During Winter

There are certain things you can do to reduce the likelihood that pests will enter your home looking for warmth this winter. Luckily, some of these winter pests can be kept out of your home so they don't become a problem.

Pest-proof these areas of your home:

  • Doors (seal gaps using weather strip or other material)
  • Dryer vents
  • Cracks/holes in the foundation or sub-floor
  • Soffits/facia (seal gaps and holes)
  • Roof (repair any holes/openings)
