What Happens to Pests During the Winter, Part 2?
These pests have been around for millions of years. They have evolved into some of the most adaptable creatures in the world. Most types of cockroaches can survive year-round as long as they can get access to a warm and moist environment easily. The German Cockroach prefers an indoor humid habitat that is close to food and moisture. This species will often make home in residential kitchens and bathrooms, especially during the winter months. The American Cockroach lives outdoors in the warmer climates but once the temperature get cold it will mass migrate into a home or commercial buildings like restaurants, grocery stores, hospitals and food processing plants.
Encountering these pests is inevitable (so is the itchy, red mosquito bites). If you spend a lot of time outdoors during the summer, they are bound to find you. Mosquitoes don’t just fall away when winter moves in. These biting insects overwinter (hibernate) in protected places like logs. When the weather improves and starts to warm, the female mosquito will awaken and seek out a blood source to feed and then begin developing eggs. Exterminator Near Me Phoenix AZ
What happens to these pests during the winter is influenced by the specific species and also the climate in which they reside. In colder climates the subterranean termite will dig deep into the soil, well below the frost line to help stay warm. Other species like the drywood termite will seek out dry wood for its shelter. Once (if any) the last freeze happens, the male and female termite will swarm and emerge form their nests. They search for a mate and a new nest location. This can often be inside our homes. In a warmer climate or heated homes, termites can be active year round. Exterminator Near Me Phoenix AZ
