Tackling Common Fall Pests in Arizona:

Safeguarding Your Home with Routine Pest Control

As summer transitions to fall in Arizona and the temperatures become milder, a new set of challenges emerges for homeowners: the presence of common fall pests. From critters seeking shelter to insects hunting for sustenance, these seasonal intruders can disrupt the peace of your home.

The solution to a pest-free living space lies in implementing regular pest control services. This article delves into prevalent fall pests in Arizona and how consistent pest control can effectively prevent their intrusion.

  • Scorpions: With the arrival of autumn, scorpions start seeking refuge indoors to escape the cooler outdoor temperatures. Their ability to hide in the smallest crevices makes them particularly challenging to keep out. Engaging in regular pest control ensures thorough inspections, identification of scorpion entry points, and the application of treatments to create a barrier against these venomous arachnids.
  • Rodents: As the weather cools down, rodents such as mice and roof rats become more inclined to find warmth within homes. Arizona’s unique climate encourages rodents to seek shelter, posing a threat to both property and health. Enlisting the aid of pest control professionals involves meticulous inspections and sealing potential entry points. Their strategic placement of traps and baits can prevent infestations and their associated issues.
  • Ants: Fall also prompts ant activity as they search for food sources. Arizona is home to various ant species, some of which can be particularly invasive. Regular pest control treatments target ant nesting areas and entry points, effectively curbing infestations. With early intervention, you can maintain a pest-free home and minimize the risk of ant-related problems.
  • Cockroaches: Cockroaches thrive year-round in Arizona’s warm climate, but their presence tends to escalate during the fall. They’re skilled at finding hiding spots in kitchens, bathrooms, and other areas of the home. Pest control professionals specialize in treating cockroach-prone areas, preventing infestations and mitigating health concerns associated with these pests.
  • Spiders: Spiders, including venomous varieties like the desert recluse and black widow, become more active as the temperature drops. Regular pest control treatments create a barrier that deters spiders from entering your living space. By proactively addressing potential hiding spots, you can enjoy an arachnid-free environment throughout the fall.

As fall arrives in Arizona, so do a variety of pests seeking refuge in your home. To ensure a comfortable and pest-free living space during this season, regular pest control services with Affordable Pest Control are crucial. Whether it’s safeguarding against scorpions, rodents, ants, cockroaches, or spiders, professional pest control experts possess the knowledge and tools needed to prevent infestations and maintain a peaceful home environment.

Evaluate & Identify

The first step is for us to inspect your home, inside and out, to create a pest control treatment plan tailored to your specific needs. We'll review this plan with you and get started.

Protect & Double Check

We will start by treating the inside and outside of your home, removing spiderwebs, and checking for areas of concern. We'll alert you of any concerns and game plan how to resolve them together - such as cleaning up debris, sealing off potential entry points, and so on.

Wait & Watch

After your service is complete, you may see some increased pest activity. This is normal as we disturbed their homes and hiding places. You can always report this to our team to see if a retreat is necessary (free of charge, of course).

Ongoing Treatment

Although we offer one time services, our customers find the most success with bi-monthly (every other month) or monthly service. Routine pest control is the best way to ensure that you don't have ongoing pest issues down the road.
