While regions across the country were either unseasonably cold or warm this past winter, there’s one factor that almost all of them had in common – excessive moisture,” said Jim Fredericks, Ph.D., chief entomologist for the NPMA. Fredericks also stated that “From record-setting snow in parts of Texas and Arizona to excessive rain in the southeast, continued precipitation predicted for most of the country this upcoming season will allow pest populations to continue to thrive and multiply.”

In the southeast, which includes states such as Virginia and North Carolina, the winter moisture will create ideal conditions for mosquito larval habitats to form in standing water. It's also reported that the moisture will enable termite populations to thrive.

The Bug Barometer has predicted a rainy summer, which is likely to increase cockroach and ant infestation for residents as they tend to iinvade indoor spaces for shelter. Pests like ticks, mosquitoes, and termites flourish in humid conditions, while other pests will be driven indoors in search of food and shelter.
