Roaches Love Your House in the Winter
During Florida winters, pests have a way of finding entry points that are invisible to people... foundation cracks, gaps around pipes or cracks under doors. 😫 The most common winter pest to make its way inside your home is the cockroach, YUCK!
With even a slight chill in the Florida air, cockroaches are drawn to the warmth provided by your home. They like humid areas and look for places with access to water, like near your kitchen sink, dishwasher or bathroom. Make sure to look for the access points discussed above and try to secure any gaps that would allow pests to enter your home.
On the outside of your home, create a separation between your foundation and any mulch or damp soil. It's also helpful to move your garbage bins slightly away from the side of your house.
Now don't be alarmed, but if you see one cockroach inside your home, chances are there are many more.
