Winter got off to an unusually warm start in NJ this past year. With temperatures being much milder than usual in December, wildlife species have been more active than normal. This also means that insect pests could be higher in number this spring, resulting in a much busier season for NJ pest control professionals.
Cold temperatures usually destroy the eggs of mosquitoes and other insect pests during winter. This helps keep pest populations down when spring arrives and these species become more active. This winter’s higher than usual temperatures could lead to increased numbers of these pests, since a lower number of eggs are likely to be killed off. When spring arrives, NJ homeowners could end up dealing with more mosquitoes and other pests. Many of these insects emerge from the ground and begin buzzing around as soon as mild weather arrives. Even though lower temperatures have been occurring in the state in recent weeks, experts believe this won’t be enough to keep insect populations down. Homeowners in NJ should be on the lookout for signs of mosquito and other pest infestations as temperatures begin to rise again.
