Does rain encourage pests into your home?

Rain and increase in pests around the home

It is so nice to see the rain finally roll over Brisbane as we have endured one of the hottest and driest summers on record. For many home owners the rain is a welcome site as the lawn and gardens were starting to look a little worse for the lack of water. This rain also means you might be seeing a few insect visitors around your home as the rain will spur insect activity on for a little longer.

You'll probably notice mosquitoes almost instantly as they relish hot, wet weather. The heat and humidity will see mosquito and midge numbers spike so be prepared and have a pest control plan in place, keeping in mind that Dengue Fever and Ross River Virus cases are on a very steady rise. If you're getting overwhelmed by mozzies have a mosquito treatment done around the home once the wet weather has passed. This treatment will eradicate the breeding adults and will create a "mozzie free zone" around your home.

Cockroaches will also be on the move as they love hot and humid conditions and the rain will drive them indoors looking for food and shelter. If you haven't had your general pest control done in the last 12 months, now might be a good time to consider bringing it up to date to prevent these cockroaches from settling in and making your home their home.

As with any pest, spiders will follow the food and if the food is at your place so will they. Most spiders eat smaller insects so if you have a lot of bugs and insects around your home, chances are you'll notice spiders as well. Having your general pest control up to date is a great way to prevent spiders from settling in and breeding, turning "just a few" spiders into many spiders.
