Pests That Will Overwinter in Your Home

While summer is a busy time for Freehold exterminators, things don’t always slow down in winter. Several different kinds of bugs can take up residence in NJ homes when it gets cold outside. Learn more about some of the pests you might encounter in your home this winter.

Cluster Flies

Cluster flies don’t go after food, but they can become a nuisance when they emerge in spring and gather around your windows. If you see any of these flies during winter, have them dealt with so they won’t cause trouble in spring.

Stink Bugs

Brown marmorated stink bugs typically gather in the warmer parts of homes during winter. If you see these brown pests in your home, have pest control professionals remove them carefully. Stink bugs get their name from the unpleasant smell they give off when they’re crushed.

Boxelder Bugs

These black and red bugs also gather in warm places during winter. If you see a few, you probably have many more hidden away. Pest control experts can find and eliminate them for you.

Ladybird Beetles

These red or orange bugs like to congregate in warm areas of homes. It’s important to have infestations take care of, since these bugs can gather in large numbers.
