Fall is finally here, and it seems like much of the Valley is coming out of its heat induced coma. Valley residents are out and about; riding bikes, hiking, and taking their dogs for long walks while enjoying the cool crisp fall weather. Our outdoor activity has increased due to the cooler weather, as has the bug activity. With this increase in bug activity in the Phoenix, particularly with ants and scorpions, the local media turns to the pest management professionals at Bulwark Exterminating for some answers. Phoenix’s ABC-15 speaks with Bulwark’s Thomas Ballantyne and watches as Bulwark technician Adele Shields treats an ant infested yard here in Phoenix.

ABC-15 In Phoenix Turns To Bulwark About Influx Of Cold Weather Bugs

 

Why Do We See An Influx Of Pests When The Weather Cools?

It’s natural to begin to see more pests when the weather cools, not only in your home but around your yard as well. Just because you are seeing a few more pests, doesn't mean you are dealing with a full-blown infestation. Just like you and me, pests do not like cold weather. The cooler fall months are used by the pests to prepare for the cold winter months. Pests like scorpions, do not do well exposed to the winter elements. During the fall, they are actively feeding, preparing for the winter, and enter our homes looking for refuge. When in an exposed environment, pests will actually hibernate to survive the frigid temperatures. Those that find themselves in a protected space, such as an insulated attic or in a box in the garage, may never experience enough cold to trigger their internal clocks to notify them to start the hibernation process. If this happens you may see them throughout much of the winter. If you are seeing pests like ants, scorpions, roaches, or spiders in your Valley home this fall, call Bulwark Exterminating today!

We have had Bulwark now for about 7 years and they have been great. We recently moved out to an area where we have fields accross the street. After the recent potato harvest all the crickets decided to join the neighborhood. If you have ever had crickets hopping all over the yard, eating up your garden, crawling into the house, getting up under the kitchen cabinets and chirping all night long you know how annoying a plague crickets can be. Anyways, we told our tech Bill Kelty about the problem when he came out for our regular service last week and he said he would take care of it. AND, guess what? He did. No more crickets. Thank you Bill!‎
