This summer’s all-time record heat is already off the charts. That means worrying about higher electric bills at home, fewer restaurant customers out and about, and even wildfires that threaten commercial real estate. Here’s another summertime problem that should stay on your radar as a homeowner, real estate owner, or restaurateur: Intense heat makes insect pests go crazy.
“Hot, longer days, and especially warm nights, do make insects more active,” says Efrain Velasco, Lloyd Pest Control’s Technical Director and a trained entomologist. Everything from ants to flies to roaches to earwigs love the heat and humidity of summertime in SoCal, when insect eating and reproductive behavior go into overdrive. Bugs also love warm evenings—so look out for swarms of pests after the first string of 75-degree nights, which kicks insect activity into high gear. More of those pests means more of the bugs that eat them, like spiders. “The longer the heat sticks around, the more insects you’ll see,” Velasco says.
