Winter Firewood Storage Increases Likelihood Of House Pests
After the leaves turn and fall, when winter winds start blowing, there’s nothing better than a roaring fireplace to bring the family together and keep warm. But for several kinds of pests, the wood used to fuel your cozy fireplace is equally inviting.
Indeed, a large variety of insects, arachnids, and other arthropods commonly dwell in, on, or around stacks of firewood through the winter.
Some harmless but undesirable houseguests include:
- House spiders
But the most problematic invaders are carpenter ants and wood-boring beetles, both of which can damage the home.
So how big is the market for treating firewood hitchhikers? According to research by Hearth and Home, nearly half (49%) of all one-family houses completed in 2015 had one or more fireplaces.
Services may include:
- Treating the home for any invaders imported by firewood
- Treating firewood stores in the home
- Treating outdoor firewood stores to reduce the risks of importing
- Removing nests near outdoor firewood stores
Our pest control franchise opportunity allows you to treat all of these wood-borne pests from your first day in business, and our complete training program can be completed in as little as 3 to 6 weeks. Get in touch with our team now to take advantage of this spiking seasonal demand.
Cold Weather Increases Demand For Rodent Controls In 2020-2021
When temperatures drop, the risk of rodent invaders skyrockets. Sealing the home rarely helps—mice can enter the home through holes the size of dimes; rats only need openings as large as quarters—and once inside, they have all they need to breed.
Within a single year, a female is able to produce 5 to 10 litters. And with an average of six to eight babies per litter, that means a family of six mice can multiply into 60 over the course of three months!
Our pest control franchise opportunity gives you all the tools and training you need to capitalize on this winter rodent surge. You can read more about our Rodent Control process on the Pestmaster website.
COVID-19 Continues To Drive Demand For Health Vector Controls And Home Pest Treatments
Household pests are easier to ignore when we’re not at home—out of sight, out of mind. But as Americans continue to shelter in place to slow the spread of COVID-19, we’re seeing increased demand for home-based pest control services. And as an essential business with all the proper anti-pandemic protocols in place, Pestmaster will continue to meet this demand through the winter.
