While many pests are not a problem during the winter months, others can still pose an issue. Cockroaches do tend to be less active during cold weather, but since your home is far from cold thanks to your heating system, you could end up dealing with a cockroach infestation. When you add in that during the holidays you are likely preparing more food than usual and have your attention turned to preparing for guests and ensuring your family has a great holiday season, it is easy to understand how a cockroach problem could go unnoticed and become more problematic than usual. That is why one of your holiday preparations should be reaching out to a professional for cockroach control and other pest control services.
Being proactive is the best way to avoid the embarrassment of a guest noticing cockroaches in your home. It might surprise you just how much germ-spreading a single cockroach can do in just a day. They can run really fast and cover a lot of ground in just a few minutes. In fact, at a top speed of 3 mph, they can contaminate your kitchen in record time. Professional cockroach control is the best way to avoid this scenario and ensure that your family and guests do not have to experience any negative side-effects.
