As Temperatures Rise, So Do Bugs

When temperatures drop, bugs go into hiding to get some rest. But the return of warm weather signals sunrise on bug season. As outdoor bug activity increases, some bugs try to come inside your house for food and water. Let’s take a look at the bugs you should be on the lookout for this spring.

Cockroach

Some cockroaches are inactive during fall and winter because they struggle to cope with cold weather. Warm weather activates their senses, and they spring into action, searching for food and water.  Increased roach activity is one of the least appealing signs that spring has arrived.

Mosquitoes

Warm weather flips the switch in the tiny brains of mosquitos, and they spring into action. As temperatures continue to rise, their activity increases, and this means more mosquito bites. This is a summertime annoyance, but it can also spread disease and cause infections, so protecting yourself, your family, and your pets from mosquitoes is very important. That’s why Waynes offers a great Mosquito Management Solution.

Ants

Ant activity peaks in April. At one time or another, we’ve all seen them playing “follow the leader.” They use pheromones to communicate, leading each other to food and water to carry back to the queen. Several types of ants might invade your home this spring and summer, including fire ants, odorous ants, pavement ants, little black ants, and carpenter ants. Regardless of the type, they are a nuisance.
