Orlando, FL, January 13, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Orange and Seminole County residents are starting to prepare for cooler temperatures, but Pro-Staff Pest Control warns that they need to be preparing for the bugs that arrive in the winter as well. Many residents wonder how certain pests can stay alive in the winter, and it really depends on the type of insect. Some can fill their body with antifreeze or slow their metabolism down, but the real issue is that Pro-Staff wants residents to make sure they’re prepared.
Some pests that come out and thrive during winter, Pro-Staff warns, are sod web worms and chinch bugs, which are insects that can also be damaging to a lawn. Sod web worms live in tunnels underground, and they just lay in wait to destroy a lawn. They will start to emerge around April, and they feed on lawns at night. Chinch bugs are the most destructive to Florida lawns, and they cost Florida homeowners millions of dollars each year in sod repair. They typically stay active, even in the cooler months.
“We want to make sure that the greater Orlando residents are aware of the winter bugs that plague our lawns,” said Robert Welch, owner of Pro-Staff Pest Control. “If you’re having an issue with insects in your lawn in the winter, you should contact Pro-Staff.”
If you have questions about the winter pests or the overall health of your lawn, make sure to contact the lawn maintenance professionals at Pro-Staff Pest Control. Seminole County residents can call 407-331-PEST (7378).
