Gravel and rock bed weeds. Right now, look for sprouted weeds, in the only-measurable-in-millimeters stage of growth. Some of these hardy plants sprout and wait out the winter. If treated with a sturdy preemergence chemical now, it'll cut them off at the roots (literally), and make February's application that much more thorough.
Bed bugs! Blood suckers have to eat, too, and fortunately, ours is 98+ degrees even in winter.
Basement and crawlspace pests. Spiders, some ants, and lots of different hemiptera (bugs) and beetles will overwinter below your home. If this displeases you, we can help.
Rodents. Mice do quite nicely this time of year, snuggling up in the garage, under the dog house, out in the tool shed, and, if you're like a dozen other customers this week, somewhere between the kitchen and the laundry room. Be sure to keep pet food put away and sealed in an airtight container during the day (this will also help with ants), and make sure you have the cracks beneath doors fully sealed, to discourage access.
