It is expected to see an influx of pests during the summer season but the severity weighs heavily on a variety of factors. In the 2011 summer season, the heat contributed to frequent treatments for ants, bees, flies, and wasps by pest control companies.
San Diego, Riverside, and Orange County experienced rain showers late in the season followed by high temperatures creating ideal conditions for pests. Ants are exposed to more food and water resources under this weather combination.
When there are enough resources to sustain a larger pest population, the more pests there are to reproduce. Plus, excessive heat speeds up reproduction for some insects creating rapid growth in pest populations.
Every type of pest needs a home and will eventually seek shelter indoors; your home is often the final destination. Homeowners in a Toledo, Ohio neighborhood witnessed rats, roaches, and other critters scramble for shelter as the debris from a home burned down in an arson attack were cleaned up. A bulldozer scooped up the remains as neighbors devised a plan to protect their homes from the scattering pests.
The nuisance factor of a pest infestation is only part of the problem. The damage and harm pests can cause to structures and people make effective pest control service a necessity. Stinging insects like honeybees account for the more than 500,000 people sent to the emergency room every year, according to American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology.
Other health risks from pests are the transmittable diseases they carry. Pests can contaminate food and surfaces with germs that could cause pneumonia, food poisoning, meningitis, E. coli, salmonella, and more.
