Seasonal Pests are Insects that enter a building as the weather starts to turn cold. These Pests come in to over winter in the attic and under siding with some reaching the interior. Most activity will slowly calm down as the insects go into a sort of sleep. In the spring as these Pests start to wake up you may begin to see more and once again the activity will peter out until the following fall. Every year the problem will tend to get worse.
There are many types of Seasonal Pests some of the most common in Rhode Island and the New England Area are Lady Bugs, Crickets, Pill Bugs, Boxelder Bugs and Squash Bugs and Stink Bugs.
The Seasonal Pests listed above are not dangerous or harmful. Seasonal Pests are just a Nuisance Pest. Your choice are to Spray yourself, put up with them till the next season or the best choice is to end to cycle and call Cobra Pest Control.
The only real sign of these Bugs is visual. Most will be in the attic where it is warmer.
These Insects will start to look for shelter to survive the winter. Their natural choice would be under tree bark, in the hollow of a tree and any other crevice they can find. Most would die over the winter. The siding of a building is very similar to a bark of a tree and a house. Buildings have many other crevices some leading into the attic many pest can fly so you can see a lot there. Since buildings provide a warmer environment most of these Pests survive and in time if will get out of control.
Some over the counter Insecticide may help. Just follow the label. Most of these bugs are found in the attic so treatment there is the most important.
