December Pest Outlook for Bryan, Texas
Winter pest control for Bryan and College Station is generally dominated by service calls for rodent control. While mice, rats, roof rats, and wood rats, dominate, many other pests enjoy living with you. Each month the pest outlook changes, and as it does, the number of service calls we receive goes up.
Top Pests for December in Bryan and College Station
- Rodents – Mice and rats, roof rats, and wood rats are common winter pests for the area. With the holiday season and guests arriving, people want rodent-free homes. Mice are experts at helping themselves to your food, and rats are not only destructive, but they are also very noisy. Both mice and rats are more active from 2 am – 5 am.
- Cockroach – Cockroaches are a tropical pest that has acclimated to most climates around the world. They don’t do well during the colder months and are almost frantic to find a warm place to overwinter. Beyond a warm winter home, they need food, and your home is full of food. Cockroaches and Silverfish are two additional pests with similar habits, and we receive calls to exterminate both regularly. Other insect pests during the winter include stink bugs, fleas, pantry pests, carpet beetles, moths, and non-insects such as spiders, centipedes, and millipedes – critters that nobody wants in their home or business.
- Bats – While mostly beneficial, we receive calls for bat removal, especially from attics. Many species of bats migrate back to Texas and Mexico to overwinter in the warmer climates of these areas.
Rodents, cockroaches, and bats are the top three pest issues for December. We also deal with many nuisance bird issues during the late fall and winter months. Winter for most of the country is freezing cold, but the warmer “cooler” seasons here in Bryan makes a perfect habitat for many pest organisms. That means more pest calls from our community.
Service and Pest Control
As such, we offer comprehensive pest control services that are both affordable and efficient. Many homeowners and commercial building managers take advantage of our one-time extermination service and then sign on for our monthly pest control service plan. The benefit of ongoing services is that new pest issues emerge each month. Because each month is different, the pest control issue that you face changes. With a monthly service plan, we can often remove pests before they become an issue.
We work with homeowners, renters, commercial businesses, and specialty businesses such as restaurants. We develop property-specific pest control services that help to address both the common pests and those that are unique. Doing so helps increase positive results that keep our client’s homes, yards, and businesses free of pest organisms.
