Where Did the Bugs Go During the Winter?

It is curious isn’t it?  Those pesty critters just disappear when the weather drops below freezing then, by some metamorphosis they poof reappear to “bug us” in the spring, summer, and fall.  It is one of nature’s great magic tricks.  Insects and household pets don’t migrate and they don’t have the wherewithal to buy a fur coat!

Surprisingly, their journey may consist of only inches.  Many live at the bottom of ponds or in the soil just below the frost.  Others even live on the surface in the warm “pockets” between leaves and grass.  Some rely on diapause.  This is actually a semi-frozen state and when warm weather hits they simply thaw out and walk or fly away!

A bug’s journey is quite remarkable, but that doesn’t mean that they are invited into our homes just because spring has nearly sprung.  The World Champion Cubbies begin soon and so will the bugs.  This season fight back by calling Chicagoland’s spring pest control expert A Complete Pest Solution at (630) 464-1542.
