It's been a long hot summer, but all things eventually come to an end. Before cold weather arrives, now is the best time to pest proof before warmth-seeking insects turn their sights on your home.
The annual migration of beetles, crickets and caterpillars to the warm environs of our homes is part of nature's survival plan.
If you're going to make it through the winter here in Kentucky, you're going to have to have some sort of strategy to do that. Some spend the winter as eggs that we never see. Some spend the winter as pupae down in the soil. It varies with the insect. But for the ones that are spending the winter in an active stage, they're the ones that can wander indoors accidentally because they're just looking for a crack or crevice to get into. When they get inside and it's warm, they'll be able to be active the rest of the year.
