When the weather outside gets unbearable, whether its too cold or too hot, you find comfort by being inside. You are not alone. Pests find refuge from severe weather and drastic temperatures in your home too. The change of seasons can have a large influence on the behavior of pests. This behavior is not limited to the area where the pests typically reside, but can also include things like mating and reproductive behavior and food sources.
As we enter the summer months of Florida, the heat can be unbearable. In addition to the heat, we also see a big increase in precipitation as we enter the wet season. Not to mention, June 1st to November 30th is hurricane season. Increased rain, wind, and heat make condition prime for increased mating and encourage pests to find comfort within your home. At DriveBye Exterminators, our experts are focused on keeping you and your home/business pest-free all year long.
When it comes to mating for pests, warm weather leads to an increase in most populations. During the summer, we see a major increase in mosquitos due to the combination of extra moisture and heat. While mosquitos aren’t trying to invade your home, they can be very irritating and overtake your yard easily. Read more about how you can control the population of mosquitos here.
Pests like cockroaches are more inclined to go inside to avoid the rain and find food sources within your home. At DriveBye Exterminators, we can help you safely control and reduce any pest infestation in your home. In addition to this, bees and wasps can use any area of your home they find refuge to build a nest and invade your space.
When the rain comes down, the pests come in. Florida is known for its unruly weather and unlike most of the United States, it does not experience the traditional four seasons. In Florida, the year is broken up into wet season and dry season. Wet season takes place during the spring and summer months, while the dry season is in the fall and winter months.
During the wet season, more rain means more ants! Ants invade your house looking for food sources and dry land. Keeping surfaces clean and doors, cracks, and windows sealed can decrease the ant population in your home. It is important to stay aware of any changes to the external of your house.
