Pests to look out for in winter on the Sunshine Coast

Winter may be a time when many pests become less active, but that doesn't mean you can let your guard down when it comes to pest control. In fact, there are some pests that are particularly active during the winter months on the Sunshine Coast. Here are some pests to look out for:

1. Rats and mice: As the temperatures drop, rodents are more likely to seek shelter indoors, making your home a prime target. Keep an eye out for droppings, gnaw marks, and evidence of nesting.

2. Ants: Ants may be less active in the winter, but they can still be a problem. They often seek out warm and dry places to nest, so keep an eye out for trails of ants in your home.

3. Cockroaches: Cockroaches thrive in warm and humid environments, making the Sunshine Coast a prime location for them. During the winter, they may seek out shelter in your home and can spread diseases and bacteria.

4. Spiders: Some species of spiders become more active during the winter months, and they may seek out warmth and shelter in your home. Keep an eye out for spider webs and egg sacs.

5. Termites: Termites are active all year round and can cause significant damage to your home. Be sure to have regular termite inspections and treatments to prevent infestations.
