How the weather affects local pests

Whether conditions in your area are hot and humid, cool and dry, or rainy with sudden downpours, your weather directly affects pests and their activities. These conditions prompt pests to invade your home to seek three very basic needs – food, water and shelter.

Any short period of drought, extended rainfall or excessive heat or cold can force insects and other pests to invade buildings seeking relief from unfavorable weather conditions. Like people, pests are affected by extreme heat or lack of rain and will do what is necessary to survive.
