September Pest Control Watch

September is a turning point in the seasons for pest. It is the end of summer and the beginning of fall. Those hot days and cool nights are key indicators for pests to finish up their routines and find a place to either produce a family or to overwinter. Common pests around the Greater Austin area for September include more wasps, ants, rodents, bed bugs, and spiders.

Roaches – all those summer BBQs and ripe fruit attract roaches. While the American cockroach is common, you might also attract the German variety or the Oriental cockroach too.

Wasps – Social wasps are always a “pain” but by fall, the paper wasps have become aggressive, the yellowjacket and hornet colonies have expanded, and all are looking for food and water.

Ants – There are dozens of native species of ants around Austin and many more that are invasive. By fall, their populations have grown, and their colonies are well established. We seem ore ants because they require more food and that means more foragers.

Rodents – Squirrels, mice, rats, and others are all busy gathering food stores and looking for a safe spot to raise a family. September is a time when we calm down from all the activities of summer. We’ve put all the camping and most of the outdoor tools away. We’ve settled the trailer and RV and are likely putting the boat away too. All of this means quiet spots around our home and quiet spots attract rodents.

Bed Bugs – Bed bugs are spread by people and traveling is one of the key ways that we bring bed bugs home. The kids have been away at camp, we’ve vacationed to that cute little cottage, visited family, had family visit us – all that traveling means we have had ample opportunity to bring bed bugs home.
