2020 Spring and Summer Pest Forecast
Updated: Dec 23, 2020
Wet weather spurs early pest activity in most regions. As temperatures levels increase and rainy season approaches, pest populations are expected to rise. The National Pest Management Association (NPMA) has released their bi-annual Bug Barometer®, a seasonal projection of the pest we can expect in our region.
“It goes without saying that this is a sensitive and uncertain time not only across our country, but across the globe. With people sending more time in their homes and yards, they may be surprised at how much pest activity they begin to notice. Unfortunately, pest pressure and populations won’t slow down this time of year and it’s important to stay vigilant against insects and rodents, which can contaminate food, inflict harmful bites and stings, transmit disease and damage property”, said Cindy Mannes, Vice President of public affairs at NPMA.
For us in the Southeast region:
A mild and rainy spring will create conducive conditions that allow mosquito and termite populations to thrive. Summer conditions in southern Florida may also cause spike in cockroach and ant pressure.
