Keeping the above in mind, let’s take a look at pests you should be watching out for as the fall season approaches.
All kinds of spiders can be spotted in homes during the fall, but black widows and brown recluse spiders are some of the most dangerous offenders. They are active throughout the cold seasons, and they commonly build their webs near entrances or under stairs. If you get bitten by either of these deadly spiders, you may end up with severe reactions – including aches, a fever, and vomiting. These spiders are extremely poisonous, so keeping an eye on their population and killing them with the help of Pest Control professionals in San Antonio can be an excellent initiative.
Ants- Ants are one of the most widespread pests throughout San Antonio. They stay in outsized numbers and repeatedly attack homes during the winter in search of food, water, and shelter. Their nests may be built beneath your house or in your backyard nearby, with ants wandering into the house daily. Carpenter ants may dwell in your walls, chewing through the wood to create their channels. Since they live on the ground, they carry germs and bacteria that are easily transmittable. For example, sugar ants are attracted to sugary foods, and there is a risk that you can get salmonella by eating foods that these ants have come in contact with. Almost every kind of ant is capable of stinging, using their mandibles and mouths to bite, especially if they feel they are in danger. These bites can cause uneasiness and pain, leaving the skin irritated or even infected. Fire ants can even cause fatal issues as their stings inject a toxin.
Cockroaches thrive in warmer summer temperatures, but as fall approaches, they start entering your home, often residing in the sewer drains, walls, and basements in search of warmth. Cockroaches can carry a robust range of diseases like the plague, salmonellosis and typhoid fever. They can also trigger asthma attacks, so it’s very important for you to keep an eye out for them and take the necessary steps to prevent them from reproducing.
