The type of weather NJ has in certain seasons can increase the presence of some types of pests during other seasons. Winters in NJ help determine how much of a problem certain pests will be during spring, summer and fall.
Warm, Dry Winters Mean Trouble
NJ had a winter that was drier and warmer than usual. Although this might seem like good news for NJ residents, it means that cockroaches, mosquitoes and ticks will have a greater presence during the rest of the year. These warmer temperatures make it easier for these pests to survive and thrive.
When combined with spring and summer storms and showers, this creates an ideal environment for these pests to reproduce and invade homes and yards. Since all of these pests can spread disease, it’s crucial for homeowners to take steps to prevent infestations.
Pest Prevention in NJ
You can lower your risk of needing NJ pest control services for cockroaches, mosquitoes and ticks by making it harder for them to reproduce and find their way indoors. This includes removing standing water from your yard, which helps cut down on mosquito reproduction.
You should also seal up gaps around doors and windows and wear insect repellent when you’re out in your yard if you have ticks and mosquitoes around.
