The National Pest Management Association (NPMA) released its bi-annual Bug Barometer ® forecast, a seasonal projection of the pest pressure and activity Americans can expect to see in their respective regions of the country based on weather patterns, long-term forecasts and pest biological behaviors. According to the group’s entomology team, a mild, dry summer season could cause increased pest activity throughout much of the U.S. as forecasts show looming predictions for below-average temperatures and increased snow this winter. Take a look below and see what may be instore for us in the South-West region.
If warm fall temperatures persist, expect insects such as cockroaches and centipedes to remain active well into fall. As cooler temperatures finally settle into the region, prepare for an increase in rodent activity. if you want services to help prevent Cockroaches and more, give Essential Pest a call at 520-886-3029 or tell us what's bugging you via online form at essentialpest.com
