Taking care of bug problems in the summer can be a huge hassle, but it is manageable if you take a proactive approach.
We all look forward to summertime because we know it’s the season for backyard barbecue parties, gardening, and more. But while we’re having a great time, so are all of the bugs! From friendly butterflies and bees to the annoying ants, mosquitoes, and wasps, it seems that insects have just as much fun as we do during the summer months.
So what is the correlation between the increase in temperature and bug activity? Well, insects are cold-blooded, which means they are more active and prolific in warm temperatures. For many insects, their body temperature is dependent on the temperature of the environment. Therefore, they rely heavily on the environment for both their patterns of behavior and their natural development.
Humans and mammals are the opposite of this. We can keep a relatively stable internal body temperature regardless of how hot or cold it is outside.
Common Summer Bugs
When the temperatures are on the rise, spiders will begin to make their way indoors to find cool, dark places to live. While most spiders are harmless, they can be a big nuisance to have around your home.
Another typical summer bug is flies. They are not only seriously annoying, but they are unsanitary too. Flies come into contact with all sorts of gross things, and they can track these things all over your home every time they land.
Ants love warm weather too! One reason is because summer is when there is an abundance of food and they are very good at finding it. They tend to come out in a mass to find food which is why you’ll see them more and more inside your home.
There are a variety of stinging insects that make their way out during the summer months, such as bees, wasps, and hornets. They are often attracted to sweet things like soda and juice. So when our kids are playing in the backyard with or when you have a barbecue, they may be tempted by those sweet things and become a nuisance.
