As winter begins to come full circle, many start to worry about the various insects and pests that may enter one’s home for protection from the cold weather. One of these insects that may enter your home are spiders. The majority of Kentucky’s spiders are harmless to humans even when they enter our home.

The cold weather has arrived, and I know you were hoping that all the bugs that pester you would die with the drop in temperature, unfortunately, that is not the case.  Or maybe fortunately, as not all insects are harmful or considered as pests.  A good example of a desirable insect is the honeybee.  Honeybees help pollinate plants and are the source for honey.

If you are a homeowner, you know that a drop in temperature means an increase in household chores.  The leaves fall meaning leaf raking and cleaning out gutters. Irrigation systems need to be blown out to prevent freezing and hose bibs need to be turned off. Your furnace will be more efficient with a clean filter, so replace your furnace filters and make sure vents to the outside are closed off. Seal up any places where air leaks occur such as pipe entrances. Make sure your fireplace is cleaned and ready for use.
