With spring in the air and the Monticello Farmers Market about to open, all the outdoor fun of biking, hiking and exploring the mighty Mississippi River will be here before you know it. Not only do people around Monticello become more active as temperatures warm up, so do all pests including arachnids, insects, and rodents!
Just because pests are more dormant and less visible during the colder months, this doesn’t mean they have magically disappeared and won’t return this spring (although that would be incredibly convenient). Some pests go into a state called diapause which allows them to withstand a greater range of low temperatures, some as low as -94º F!
Being that we just experienced a more mild winter than normal, the expectation is a boom in pest activity sooner rather than later. Wasps, hornets, and even mosquitoes are already out and about around people’s homes and yards. Homeowners should pay special attention to the pest movement in and around their home such as spiders, ants, wasps and crickets. It is important to be aware of the early sightings and not wait to act until they have had a chance to develop into a larger and more complex situation.
