As the temperatures drop, many people mistakenly believe they no longer need to worry about pest control. This could not be further from the truth! Pests can be even more of a problem in the winter because they are simply dormant, not gone. Even though you may not see the pests, they may wreak havoc on your home. Here we will discuss some of the costs associated with canceling your pest control service in the winter.

Pests Will Return

One of the most apparent costs of canceling your pest control in the winter is that you will likely see an increase in pests when they become active again. This can be a nuisance and even lead to health problems if you are not careful. In addition, if you have pets or small children, they may be more susceptible to pest-borne diseases.

Pests Will Multiply

Another cost of canceling pest control in the winter is that getting rid of pests can be more challenging once they have become established. This is due to pests having more time to build up their numbers, which will be harder to eradicate. If you try to get rid of pests on your own, you may find that it takes multiple attempts and a lot of money to succeed.

Pests Will Damage Your Home

Finally, canceling your pest control service in the winter can damage your home. This is because pests can destroy your insulation and wiring, leading to expensive repairs. Having a pest infestation can result in challenges selling, or even renting out, your home.

As you can see, many costs are associated with canceling your pest control service in the winter. Before deciding, weighing these costs against the benefits of having a pest-free home is essential. If you decide that the benefits outweigh the costs, call Turin Pest Control today before it’s too late!
