Just as it is for us humans, winter in the Phoenix area offers pretty nice weather for pesky household pests. The average temperature during these months is typically between 56° and 60°F. 

But even with these milder temps, pests like rodents, roaches, spiders, and scorpions will still be looking for places to shelter, including your home. Therefore, it’s best to have your house treated for pests year-round. Here’s more info about why such treatments are necessary and beneficial to you.

Pests Are Still Active During Arizona’s Mild Winters

You may look around the outside of your home and notice there are less bugs crawling around. Some pests do migrate to warmer climates during the winter, but others choose to take the easier route and find warmth in nearby structures. So, don’t let the absence of pests on the outside trick you into thinking they have completely disappeared this winter. 

Among the pests that are active during southern Arizona winters are: termites, ants, spiders, roaches, scorpions, mice, and rats. As they attempt to beat the cold, you might actually see MORE of these pests in your home.

Recurring Pest Control Is Necessary to Maintain a Pest-Free Home Year-Round

Most of the time, one pest control treatment application isn’t going to be enough to resolve an infestation. And typically, an application only lasts for two months. So, in order to effectively treat your home for pests, multiple treatments are essential. 

Pests Considered Dangerous and Those That Have High-Infestation Potential Should Be Treated Regularly

Dangerous pests, like scorpions and spiders, and pests that have a high-infestation potential, like roaches, should be treated periodically and thoroughly. 

Scorpion stings and venomous spider bites can be fatal to some. So, if you have an infestation of either one, it would be in your best interest to invest in professional and recurring pest control. Your health is important and not acting on a dangerous infestation could put you at risk. 

Roaches, which have a high-infestation potential, multiply very quickly. In fact, one female can produce anywhere between 200 to 300 offspring or 6 generations a year. However you do the math, that’s a lot of roaches very quickly. Such an infestation will need frequent treatment to eradicate the population.
