What is the Fall Crawl?


Fall Crawl is when bug & insects begin to seek shelter indoors. Spectracide® has home insect killers & home pest control products for do-it-yourself pest control. Fall is a key time of year when insects like ants, spiders, boxelder bugs, stink bugs, cockroaches and other home invading insects are looking for a warm place to spend the winter. Fall crawl or autumn infestation are terms used to describe the migration of bugs from outside to inside homes. Fortunately, Spectracide® Brand has easy-to-use, fast-acting home insect killers and home pest control products for do-it-yourself pest control.

Common Home Invading Insects

WF1438500_Ants

ANTS

Ants typically seek shelter indoors during the cooler fall months or during rainy weather so they can stay warm and dry. Ants can commonly be found in the kitchen, bathroom and basement during the Fall Crawl. Pay special attention to gaps near windows and outside-facing walls.

BOXELDER BUGS

Boxelder bugs tend to seek fall crawl shelter in the cracks and crevices in and around building foundations. However, if there is a break in cold conditions, Boxelders may come out of hibernation and move into the warmth of your home.

COCKROACHES

Feared beyond all reason, cockroaches have wings but can’t fly and don’t bite. American cockroaches are reddish brown with yellow margins around the head. Only four of the 50 varieties dwell in homes, and almost all like to eat decaying organic matter at night.

STINK BUGS

Stink Bugs often look for quiet places in your home such as attics and cracks and crevices. They often release pheromones signaling other Stink Bugs to come seek shelter in this preferred site.
