Bug Barometer for Spring and Summer 2018


 

“This year’s La Niña brought unusual moisture, sleet and snow to southern areas that are typically much warmer and drier this time of year, while conversely, areas like the Northwest that are usually colder in the winter had much milder weather,” Jim Fredericks, Ph.D., says in an NPMA news release. “Residual moisture is a prime attraction for pests, especially home-damaging termites and mosquitoes known for transmitting disease, and conditions are ideal for when these pests typically flourish in the springtime.”

 Termites are predicted to invade South-Central U.S. Also, cockroaches and other crawling pests are projected to have a field day, the group said.
