Minnesota Insect, Pest, and Animal Control

Hot, dry weather in the Midwest has created the perfect storm for pests.

The especially hot temperatures much of the country has experienced this summer has lead to increased populations of many pests, including ants, fleas, ticks, termites, spiders, beetles, crickets, and earwigs.

Scientists and pest control companies report this year’s record heat and drought have kicked off a “breeding bonanza” of summer pests. They are arriving earlier and in greater numbers than usual.

According to the NOAA National Climatic Data Center, the first half of 2012 has been the warmest on record for the U.S. mainland since record keeping began in 1895. This summer has been especially brutal, with heat waves sending temperatures soaring in 20 states and breaking more than 170 all-time warmth records. In addition, unusually dry weather is causing wide-spread droughts, which when combined with the heat, can increase pest infestations.

Drought can drive insects into homes: Ants, for instance, will come into homes to find water. If they’re not finding it outside, they’ll come inside. If the warmth stays into the fall, insects will continue to do well until the frost comes.

Not only are these pests persistent and annoying, they can also cause health and safety concerns. Mosquitoes can transmit West Nile Virus and Malaria among other diseases, ticks can spread Lyme disease, and ants, spiders, wasps, bees and hornets can produce painful bite/sting marks and pose a larger threat to those who have an allergic reaction.

Ask yourself these questions:

  • How big is the problem and do I need help?
  • Where are they coming from? If you see one cockroach, ant or mouse, there usually are many more
  • Look for holes in the wall, cracks in the floor, torn window or door screens and repair them.
  • How do you get rid of pests? First try old-fashioned non-chemical ways to kill pests by stepping on them or using a fly swatter, or use traps like ant traps, cockroach motels, and mousetraps.
  • How do you keep pests from coming back? Don’t be a host. If pests can’t find crumbs to eat, a leaky faucet to drink from or a quite, dark crack to live in, they won’t stay and multiply.
