Summer weather that has been hotter and wetter than usual can sometimes bring an increase in populations of certain insects. Could this year’s weather mean that we should expect to see a higher number of ladybugs around? Find out whether or not you’re more likely to need pest control services in Monmouth County this fall for a ladybug invasion.
Weather and Ladybugs
The population of ladybugs or ladybirds has drastically increased in past years, such as during 1976 in the U.K. This significant increase is linked to weather factors, such as the amount of sunshine that occurs when summer starts and how mild the previous winter was. While it’s unlikely that these beetles will swarm over towns throughout NJ as they have done in the U.K., you can still expect to see them around, especially as the weather cools down.
Ladybug Behavior in Fall
During fall, ladybugs sometimes gather on the outside of buildings where it’s sunny and warm. Some of these beetles also make their way inside to take shelter in walls until spring arrives. These beetles can then cause trouble for homeowners. If ladybugs get into your home, NJ pest control services can prevent them from becoming a big nuisance.
