This Child’s Face Says What We Are All Feeling: Last Winter’s Mild Temperature Will Lead to Increase in Summer Pests.

The winter months are over, but all the snow and rain we had in NJ means that you can expect to see a lot more bugs this summer. If you normally deal with mosquitoes and other pests during summer, their numbers might be even higher than usual.

Effects of Weather on Bugs

Having a lot of precipitation during winter brings bugs out in full force when spring and its warmer weather roll around. Spiders, mosquitoes, ticks and other bugs tend to thrive in these types of conditions. Ants are also around in abundance after a winter full of wet weather.

Bug Problems

Spiders and ants aren’t much of a problem as long as they stay outdoors, but they can be a big problem inside homes. Some spiders bite, while ants can get into food supplies and even chew on wiring inside walls. Mosquitoes and ticks are a problem whether they’re inside or outside. In most cases, you’ll find these biting pests outdoors. Mosquitoes and ticks can spread certain diseases, including Lyme disease and West Nile virus, so it’s best to hire NJ pest control services if you have a problem with them on your property.

If mosquitoes or other bugs are giving you a problem this summer, our NJ pest control services can help. Give Allison Pest Control a call for more information on our services in Monmouth County and Ocean County.
