The summer weather comes with many perks, such as the chance to chill outdoors and engage in outdoor activities. However, it is also a chance for some unwelcome guests to seek shelter from the hot sun.
Your home provides a conducive living environment.
Summer can see common pests invade your home in search of cool, wet conditions. Your home will likely witness an influx of these diminutive creatures when there are heat waves and dry spells. Although bugs love warm temperatures, they cannot survive in sweltering weather. They will thus seek refuge in your shrubs, sheds, in the house, and surrounding environs.
You might also associate rodent infestation with cold weather, as it makes sense that they get into your home to keep away from the cold. However, just like other pests, rats and mice also sneak into your home during the summer to stay cool. In fact, rodents naturally are drawn towards structures because of the smell and cover they provide. They will thus penetrate through small openings around the house, causing havoc to whatever is in storage.
An increase in bugs and insects usually accompanies the summer. This is because these tiny creatures are cold-blooded and thus thrive in warm conditions. They are thus likely to reproduce and then seek refuge in your home. Therefore, you might see an increase in the number of crickets, mosquitoes, and termites in your backyard.
In the summer, you are also more likely to witness pest activity at night than during the day as pests wait for temperatures to cool down. If looking to get rid of pests within your home, your efforts might be more fruitful during the night.
