How safe are you from pests this summer?
With the soaring temperatures in the Australian summer, pests found the sweltering conditions as an excuse to invite themselves into our homes.
Although most pests like warm weather, they also need water resources to thrive. As for insects not being able to generate their own body heat, they rely on the sun rays’ warmth to keep thriving. But too much heat and dryness can also kill them, especially when they are left exposed outdoors, and so they tend to get into our homes for protection – the reason being why there is an increased insect pest activity indoors during summer.
Cockroaches don’t mind the heat, ultimately because they live mostly inside our homes. But once they are present inside, that means spiders also are! Spiders primarily prey on roaches and will stick around if there are plenty of insects to feed on and place to hide.
On the other hand, mosquitoes may not be as plentiful due to the lack of standing water, but the warm weather helps make their breeding and life cycles happen faster. The warm temperature could also bring in increased activity of butterflies and bees that provide ample nourishment for predators such as wasps, hornets, spiders, birds, and reptiles.
The warm weather affects rodents and other small mammal activities as well. What other places could give the ideal resources they need to thrive aside from their natural habitat? Most probably your home.
And BEWARE! It is not just crawling bug insects or little rodents desperately trying to make their way into our homes and garden, snakes can also be one of them!
Quite often, you may have encountered a snake coiling in your bathroom, bathtub, or under your bed. It’s because it provides them a perfect condition their body needs to stay cool against the worst of the summer season.
With all these possibilities that may take place, one must keep in mind the preventive pest control measures to avoid any mishaps in the future. But you don’t have to worry! You can always call a pest expert if you’re unsure of what to do with an active infestation in your home or are simply looking for a piece of advice.
