Pest control is a year long activity for most home owners. Heating and air conditioning in modern homes maintain ideal conditions for most pests, so don't expect a lot of help from mother nature. Watch particularly in the spring and fall seasons for migrations, infestations and movements of large numbers of insects and pest into the home. Dry summer conditions can also make the house more attractive to bugs than the outside.
Pests, either bugs, rodents or larger or smaller animals can cause trouble in any type of home. There are pest control companies, both locally and nationally based that can treat your home on a regular basis to avoid any possible infestation, or there are also options to deal with the problem once you notice pests in your living areas or outside in the vicinity of your house.
