Fall is usually the time of year when temperatures begin to cool. Although in recent years that has not been the case for the West Coast. Temperatures continue to be unseasonably warm well into September and October, a trend that has extended pest seasons, allowing for additional reproductive cycles and thriving populations. Not good news for homeowners, especially once the weather cools down and fall pests decide to invade; temporarily abandoning their natural environments for a cozier place – your home.

These fall invaders seek out shelter. When their natural habitat fails to supply them with the resources needed to survive, they’ll seek it out somewhere else. Your home offers the perfect environment away from the elements. Therefore, to prevent pests from making your home theirs, you’ll need to keep them from entering it in the first place.
Here's some useful information on the fall invaders you may be up against and what you can do to reduce or eliminate them for good.
Spiders remain active year-round in warm-weather states. However, if the temperature drops below 40 degrees Fahrenheit, they’ll go into a state called diapause, becoming dormant.
Boxelder bugs, Asian lady beetles, and cluster flies are fairly dormant during the winter, although they can be lured out of hiding by the warmth of the sun. Once the sun sets, they will retreat to their chosen hiding spot.
