Autumn has come and gone, and winter has made its way into your home. The outside of your house looks like a winter wonderland, but with it comes many changes. A fact is the colder weather brings more activity in the bug world as well. While the insect population does not grow during the cold months, they do storm your living space for warmth and water.
Eventually, your haven becomes the pests’ refuge as well.
The truth is they become annoying. Some people who get in contact with them such as bed bugs cause severe allergic reactions. Some even transmit disease, and others create havoc damaging the structure of the home. Just awful don’t you think?

If you suffer from different allergies, the winter is going to be a miserable time. The insect will chew through paper, plastic, cardboard to get hold of food. In an unprotected pantry, a cockroach can do loads of harm if foods unprotected (and not in an airtight container.) Moreover, provisions will spoil while they fill their tummies with the crumbs.
