Wet Weather Creates Breeding Ground for Insects

Feb 3, 2019

The start of this summer has been wet and cool, which can make for a pleasant fall, but it will take getting through a hot and humid summer first.

The recent weather patterns have flooded marshes and created a breeding ground for bugs and insects. With the upcoming week of hot and sunny weather, the ground will start to dry out and pest control will be on the forefront of every homeowner’s mind.

The abundance of rain is the ideal environment for mosquito, flea, tick and spider populations. It doesn’t help that the drying out will coincide with the early summer, the natural growth cycle of insects. Wet leaves, tall grass and damp wood all foster a breeding ground for mosquitoes, fleas, ticks, and spiders.

It is possible to see a problem with roaches as they flee from water and find the dry refuge of the home most appealing.

Lawn treatments and pest control measures to the home are the most effective way to get control of an insect problem. Getting a professional treatment is recommended so the bug infestation can be identified and the most effective way to get rid of mosquitoes, fleas, ticks, and spiders can be performed.
