Warm Winter’s Effects on Insect Pests in Spring

Having a winter that’s warmer than usual might seem like a good thing. However, it can lead to bigger pest problems in the spring. You might need Monmouth County NJ pest control this season if you’re dealing with common spring pests.

More Insect Survivors

Some insect species spend the winter months in a form of hibernation, which allows them to avoid needing food and water for months. As long as they’re in a sheltered spot they’re usually able to survive. Colder winter temperatures and less snow or ice make it harder for insects to survive, since snow and ice cover provide some protection from extreme cold. Warmer temperatures or enough snow and ice cover make it easier for a larger number of insects to survive into spring.

Larger Populations

Having a higher number of insects survive the winter means that there are more around to reproduce in the spring. This can lead to a big increase in the overall population of some insect species, including mosquitoes, wasps and other pests. These bigger populations can be harder to eliminate if they cause an infestation in your house or yard.
