Just like humans, pests have seasons where they are most active. In Houston, where there is a wide range of weather patterns, different pests will be common in different seasons. Some of the things that determine when pests are the most common include: 

  • Temperature
  • Moisture
  • Changes in weather
  • Mating patterns

By understanding how these things affect a pest population, you can prepare your home each season. Even though winter in Houston tends to be mild, it can still cause some pests to seek shelter in your home. Techniques like Integrated Pest Management can help keep you and your family safe and comfortable all year. 

Spring

Spring is a very busy season for all animals, including pests. Bug activity skyrockets in the spring because of the warmer weather and blooming plant life. It is generally when many pests start to reach maturity and look for places to build their homes. 

  • Flies reach maturity at the beginning of spring and start to swarm anywhere humans are. 
  • Termites also begin to build new colonies and swarm to places where there is a lot of food available. 
  • Spiders start to emerge from their hiding places because the increase in bug activity means more food is available. 

Summer 

Summer in Houston is very hot and humid. While for many pests, this means they will be less abundant, others thrive in this kind of weather. Humidity and heat combine to create a perfect breeding ground for some of the most irritating pests. 

  • Mosquitoes go through their breeding cycle much faster when the temperature is above 85 degrees.
  • Bees reach maturity in the summer and begin to look for places where humans are gathered to find food. 
  • Ants migrate in the summer and will seek refuge in your home, where food is easy to get. 

Fall 

During fall, many pests start to look for places to hide and wait out the colder winter months. Often, this means they will end up inside your home. Fall tends to be when you will see more pests inside your home than outside of it. 

  • Cockroaches do not thrive in cold weather. Because of this, they will seek shelter in your walls, drains, and pipes while they wait it out. 
  • Rodents build their nests in the fall, so they have a place to go during the colder months. They like to build in places like attics and basements where they have access to your home. 

Winter

Winter in Houston is mild, but pests will still look for shelter if they are not used to the cold. Some of the most common year-round pests will still be an issue, even though it is colder. 

  • Bed bugs are common in Houston and can be very difficult to remove, no matter the time of year. 
  • Wildlife and larger rodents will be trying to get into your home much more frequently if it is colder outside. 

Protect Your Home Year-Round

While there are some months where pests will be more common, many of them thrive all year. Preparing your home as well as you possibly can is the best way to help prevent pests from ever getting in. This means putting up barriers and using exclusion methods to ensure that pests stay outside. 

A professional can help you find the best solutions for year-round pest control. Many pest control companies in Houston can work with you to come up with a plan. Being prepared for all pests is your best chance at keeping them out, no matter the season or temperature.
