Seasonal pests in Ann Arbor, such as Brown Marmorated Stink Bugs, Boxelder Bugs, Asian Ladybird Beetles, Cluster Flies and some wasps exhibit a behavior we call “overwintering”.
In late summer and early fall these pests collect in large numbers on buildings and crawl into cracks and crevices with the intent to hide until spring. The warmer temperatures inside will draw them into living spaces causing activity throughout the winter and in early spring. By providing a thorough preventive treatment in late summer or early fall we can prevent these pests entirely. Some insects such as Carpenter Bees and Paper wasps show up reliably every spring and summer. These pests can also be prevented with an appropriately timed treatments.
