I could not be happier with the ease of setting up my services and the lack of pressure when deciding which services I wanted completed. Communication was great and thorough. On the day of my service, Damon Moore called about 30 minutes prior to arriving to confirm his arrival time. Damon is professional, courteous and thorough with his work. Thanks for a great experience and look forward to your ongoing monitoring of the service.

I’ve been using natran for a few years now and can’t recommend them enough! Today, our technician, Damon, came by and confirmed that we have termites. He informed us on the signs, gave us a plan of attack, and promised to be with us every step of the way. I have confidence that he and Natran will take care of us and make our home pest free.

Hey there! Today, we're diving into a topic that might seem as unpredictable as the weather itself: the role of weather in pest infestation cycles. Yep, you heard it right! Those pesky critters buzzing around your house aren't just random wanderers. Nope, they've got a schedule to keep, and believe it or not, the weather plays a big part in it.

So, let's have a little chat about how Mother Nature's moods can influence the comings and goings of our least favorite house guests.

Understanding Pest Infestation Cycles

Alrighty, let's break it down: understanding pest infestation cycles is like deciphering a bug's playbook. You see, these critters aren't just winging it (pun intended); they've got a method to their madness. It's kinda like knowing when your favorite band is dropping a new album—you gotta stay in the loop to know what's coming next.

First off, you've got the warm weather crew. When the sun's out and the temps are up, pests like ants and mosquitoes are all about that outdoor life. They're out and about, soaking up the rays and causing mischief wherever they go. But when the clouds roll in and the rain starts falling, it's like a whole new ballgame. Suddenly, you've got puddles turning into mosquito breeding grounds and damp wood becoming a termite's paradise. It's all about knowing when and where these critters like to party so we can crash it before things get out of hand. So, whether it's rain or shine, we've got our eyes on the prize, ready to tackle pest problems head-on.

Insects and Warm Weather: A Case Study

Picture this: it's a scorching summer day, and you're sweating buckets while trying to enjoy your backyard BBQ. Sound familiar? Well, guess what? Bugs love it too! Warm weather is like an open invitation for pests to come out and play (or wreak havoc, depending on how you see it).

When temperatures rise, bugs like ants, mosquitoes, and flies throw a party like no other. They're all, "Hey, the weather's great! Let's crash some picnics!" But why? Well, warm weather speeds up their metabolisms, making them more active and hungry. It's like they've had a double espresso and are ready to conquer the world (or at least your kitchen).

The Role of Precipitation in Supporting Pest Populations

Now, let's talk about rain. Sure, it's great for your garden and all, but guess who else loves a good soaking? Yep, you guessed it: bugs. Rainfall can create the perfect breeding grounds for all sorts of pests, from mosquitoes to termites.

Think about it: puddles become makeshift swimming pools for mosquito larvae, while damp wood becomes a five-star hotel for termites. So, while you're cozying up indoors during a downpour, pests are out there doing their happy dance, loving life.

But here's the kicker: too much rain can actually put a damper on pest populations. See what I did there? Excessive rainfall can flood their homes (aka your house) and wash away their food sources, sending them scurrying for higher ground. So, next time it rains cats and dogs, just remember: it might not be all bad news!

Rodents and Cold Climates: An Analysis

Those furry little freeloaders who think your cozy home is their winter wonderland. When the temperature drops and Jack Frost comes knocking, rodents like mice and rats start scouting for warm, toasty hideouts. And guess what? Your home fits the bill perfectly! It's like they've got a built-in GPS that leads them straight to your doorstep. But fear not, because we're here to give those sneaky squatters the eviction notice they deserve!

Now, you might be wondering: how do these critters survive when the mercury takes a nosedive? Well, it's all about adaptation, my friend. Rodents are like the survival experts of the animal kingdom. They've got thick fur coats to keep them warm and nimble little bodies that can squeeze into the tiniest of spaces. Plus, they're experts at raiding your pantry for snacks—talk about resourceful! But don't worry, we've got a few tricks up our sleeves to outsmart these cold-weather connoisseurs and keep your home rodent-free all winter long. Check out our blog specifically about rodent prevention here! If you have pests in your home right now, consider us for an exclusion service.

Highlighted Questions

How does weather affect pests?
However, you will find some commonalities between these various creatures when it comes to weather. For example, most pests prefer warmer temperatures over colder. They also need ample water and nutrition. And finally, they require shelter of some sort, no matter the elements.

Does more humidity mean more bugs?
When humidity levels are above 70% relative humidity, it becomes a breeding ground for bugs and mold. With a humidistat, you'll be able to see when the humidity in your building is too high; you'll be able to do something about it as quickly as possible.
