The holiday season starts off in the fall with a holiday that is fun and creepy all at once. Halloween is known for many things such as ghosts, goblins and creepy pests too! The pests play a huge role in the Halloween night festivities. There are some pests that are symbols of Halloween and the scary part is that they are all real! There are many symbols of Halloween that are fictional but the pests are real. These pests just so happen to be an issue in the fall season as well. The fall season is known for the nice cooler weather which is great for us but not so much for pests. Most of them want to be in a warmer place rather than out in the elements. They are always on the hunt for a safe place to live and nest. These pests that are known for Halloween and also come out in the fall need to each be dealt with if you find them in your home. A Five Star Termite & Pest Control
lists some Halloween type critters you may encounter in your home this fall season.
Are Rats Active in Fall?
One of the most common spoofs you can purchase at a Halloween store is a fake rat! They are large and creepy and if you see one while walking up to t door for a candy it can send you a start. You don’t want to find one waiting for you on your porch or in your house. While rodents that get into your home during warmer months come and go as they please, if rodents get into your home in the fall season, however, they are staying for the winter! A rat is a large rodent that has the ability to cause some major damage to a home. They can not only chew through cords and wires but can leave a trail of feces and urine as well. You don’t want to allow a rodent such as a rat to live around your home and especially in it. If you find that you have a rat that is not a Halloween decoration you need to make sure that you call out a pest control company as soon as possible. You don’t want to run the risk that a rat spread disease and causes allergies to flare up. There are very particular ways to treat for rats to ensure that they are not living in the home any longer.
Is that a Bat or a Vampire like Dracula?
One of the most iconic figures from Halloweens all over the US is that of Dracula. When Dracula changes forms he turns into a bat that can fly through the night and get where he needs to go. While Dracula is one part of the equation, bats are a big part of what people will use to decorate and try to scare the visitors throughout the night. During the cooler fall nights you can see these critters flying around your neighborhood. The problem is that the bats need to hibernate and live somewhere. They commonly can be found under the eaves of a house and even in the attic and chimney of some homes. If you suspect bats and you need to have them removed you should call a pest control technician that specializes in bat control.
Do Spiders Come Out on Halloween?
Another common thing to see all over during the Halloween season is spiders and spider webs. With movies out that depict killer spiders, giant spiders and even man eating spiders, they have become a great way to cause a scare for most would be trick or treaters. They are a fun pest to hide around a corner or up in a bush but if you see them and they happen to be real you could be in trouble. You want to be sure that you have them treated by a professional pest control company.
