We had such a mild winter. And lately, I don’t know about you guys, but it’s been impossible to dress myself properly for the manic mood swings Mother Nature’s taking from one hour to the next. From cold swampy sleet to sunny skies in a matter of hours, it’s pretty crazy. What does it mean? How is it affecting the earth, humans, animals and even pests?

Weather and Pests

There’s no question bugs and rodents are just as confused as we are. Winter in the Midwest is typically a time for bugs to slow down and retreat into safe nooks and crannies to survive the elements. But when your winter is so warm and you start seeing mosquitoes in your apartment in December (that really happened to me!!) you know things are out of whack. Without extreme cold, pests stayed more active this season. And they exist to pretty much eat and mate most of the time. So guess what that means for spring. If you ask me “Are bugs worse this year?” I’ll tell you my opinion by describing how I got bitten by a mosquito in the month of December. norway_rat_front_view.jpg
