Will your kids be dressed up as ghosts, vampires or the latest goblin this Halloween? Well, they will not be the only creepy thing lurking around our home and neighborhood. Myrtle Beach Pest Control wants you to be aware that as the temperatures drop, creepy creatures like spiders, rodents, and cockroaches are looking for refuge in your home. The change in temperature will drive these pests indoors for water, shelter, and food. I am sure that you have seen the rubber replicas of these pests as decorations during the Halloween holiday season, but you definitely don’t want the live versions haunting your house. A recent survey done by a national pest control company showed that 39% of the people taking the survey disliked these particular pests because of their creepiness. In this same survey, 100% of the respondents listed cockroaches as the creepiest of them all. The main reason given for their dislike is the fear of being attacked or bitten by these insects. With Halloween approaching, it is a good time for Myrtle Beach Pest Control to remind homeowners of the risks that are posed by these particular creatures and give you some tips to help reduce the activity around your residence.
