At Pest Defense Solutions, we have noticed a marked increase of insect activity lately, especially in Albuquerque, Rio Rancho, Los Lunas and El Paso. Have you noticed and increase of bugs around your house during this wet weather? Well, it’s monsoon season and the insects love it! Our residential pest control services can help.
Adult insects are what we see coming out of hiding and scurrying or flying about when the humidity rises and the rains fall.
“The activity level for adults is probably at the peak in the monsoon,” he said. “They emerge as adults when the weather is good, find a mate and find a place to lay their eggs” said Carl Olson, associate curator at the University of Arizona Insect Research Collection.
Insect communications are hampered by low humidity. Their exoskeletons are less able to receive smells, sounds and touches in hot, dry weather, he said.
