It’s a bitter irony that, right after celebrating the new year, we experience the worst part of it. And make no mistake: the early months of the year are the worst--at least, here in the Midwest.

The terrible cold of winter creates all kind of problems. Some are obvious, like traffic jams. Others, less so. For instance: severe cold often brings about unique pest control challenges. Pests want to stay out of the cold just as badly as you do. Often, they want to stay with you. You don’t want that. Here are four pest problems a cold winter can create, and how to deal with them.
