Summer is almost over, but for bugs and crawling insects it’s a whole new season to breed and multiply. Whether we like or not, fall is one of the best times that insects can propagate and gather more food in preparation for winter. This is the time of increased population and infestation of stinkbugs, spiders, bagworms, Oleander, Fall Web Forms, Armyworms and many more plant pests. So if you are growing indoor and outdoor plants, expect to see these bugs everywhere. But don’t be discouraged, because there are a lot of prevention and pest control measures in the fall that your local Richmond exterminator can provide.
Remember prevention is your best protection against these bugs.
Fall is typically a very pleasant time of year for people to spend time outdoors. But it’s also a time when many pests are busy looking for a drier and more.
Insects start to come inside when fall arrives and their natural food sources disappear. Whether your house is the preferred winter home for crickets, boxelder bugs, spiders, silverfish or any other creepy crawlies, stay one step ahead.
