- Ants – Many of us have heard the story about the grasshopper and the ant. Did you know that it is not far off from the truth? As winter starts, ants spend time collecting food so they can build fat during the winter. Once it gets too cold, they close up the colony and wait until the season is over.
- Mosquitoes – These insects tend not to bother us in the winter, but they are still around. Most insects ten to hibernate, hiding out in quiet, protected areas like logs. It is a wise idea to look around your property for any spot that may contain mosquitoes.
- Termites – You may find termites in your home all year long, but most of these insects hide underground during the winter months, coming out when the temperatures reach 70 degrees. The reality of the situation is insects can live year-round in a home that stays warm all winter long.
