Summertime in Dallas means hot days, cold drinks, and outdoor fun. Unfortunately, it also means dealing with a few extra pests. From mosquitoes to ants, there are a variety of insects that love the warm weather as much as we do. In this blog, we'll take a look at some of the most common summer pests in Dallas.
Ants are a common sight in the summer, and there are a few reasons for this. For one thing, ants are attracted to warmth and sunlight, so they tend to be more active in the summer months. In addition, ants often look for food during the summer, as this is when many plants bear fruit, and more people eat outside.
Finally, the summer is also the time when ants reproduce, so the population increases. The queen ant can lay up to a dozen eggs at a time, but when the ant colony is filled with worker ants the queen can lay up to 800 eggs a day.
Mosquitoes are a common sight in the summer months when warm temperatures and humid conditions provide the perfect breeding ground for these pesky insects. Female mosquitoes lay their eggs in stagnant water, and the larvae that hatch from these eggs develop quickly in warm weather. In addition, adult mosquitoes are more active in warm weather, increasing their chances of coming into contact with humans.
While there are many nuisance factors that contribute to the presence of mosquitoes in the summer months, there are also some health implications to consider. These insects can transmit serious diseases like malaria and the Zika virus, making it important to take steps to avoid being bitten. Fortunately, there are a number of effective mosquito control measures that can help to keep these pests at bay.
Spiders are common in the summer for a variety of reasons. For one, the warm weather provides an ideal environment for spiders to mate and lay eggs. In addition, insects are also more active in the summer, and spiders feed on insects. The increased population of insects provides spiders with an abundant food source, leading to population growth. Finally, many people spend more time outdoors in the summer, providing spiders with more opportunities to enter homes and other buildings.
