Bug Barometer

May 07, 2018

Don't let the colder winter we’ve had this year fool you. Expect bug activity to be higher than usual because of this year’s aggressive La Niña. This weather pattern has brought more moisture than usual to the Southeast, which will allow bugs, like mosquitoes, to thrive and make a larger appearance than usual. As it warms up we can also expect to see increased populations of cockroaches and termites, among other bugs.
