Migratory Pest Control
‘Tis the season, and as the weather gets colder up north, more wildlife make their way south. The great migrations are underway, and that means an influx of new pests. Oct and November are prime months for several creatures to appear around the Bryan, Texas, area.
Who to Expect
Many animals migrate to the warmer areas of Texas and into Mexico. Those include birds, bats, and insects.
Pest birds may seek nesting places in walls, chimneys, and eaves. Some may even find a way into your attic or outbuildings. Birds in your home or the attic walls are noisy, and they make a huge mess with their droppings. They will also steal insulation to build their nests. They can post a fire hazard if they get near electrical wiring.
Bats of all sizes migrate to Texas and Mexico for the winter. Bats are mammals, and they have a specific set of needs for roosting. Small spaces work best, and they will happily take up roosting under loose shingles, behind loose siding, in your chimney, and the attic.
Bats do not require much space to get into a home. A small hole in a roofing vent or soffit vent is enough. A small gap under a window or a loose piece of siding is plenty of space for a bat to find a place to roost.
Bats cause an enormous amount of damage if left to roost for a season. This is because their feces and urine are highly acidic and will accumulate quickly.
Due to the warmer weather, insects are still very active. We have an influx of butterflies and moths to the area. Moths are primarily destructive to gardens and landscaping.
A non-migratory insect pest that is common this time of year is stink bugs.
