What’s the best part of Louisiana summers? If someone were to ask you this, your answer might be, “the end.” Summer in Louisiana brings more than high temperatures. Along with sweltering highs and scorching lows, Louisiana summer also marks a rise in population. We’re not talking about the human population though. We’re talking about the hundreds of insects and pests that thrive in hot weather. If you’re in Baton Rouge, pest control might be your best line of defense. As fall inches closer and closer, many of us are anticipating the end of the reign of insects around us. But that doesn’t mean we’re out of the clear, there are plenty of insects and pests that thrive in cooler temperatures as well. Stay one step ahead by contacting your Baton Rouge pest control service.
Where Do Bugs Go in Cooler Temperatures?
It seems like insects and pests vanish into thin air when the temperatures begin to drop. This is not the case, though. In fact, most insects are able to survive in cold climates as long as the temperatures are consistent. The experts at the Smithsonian Institute tell us that many insects survive by migrating. Insects like the monarch butterfly are famous for their migration patterns. Another common way that bugs survive is by overwintering as larvae. This method ensures that bugs, such as caterpillars, remain as larvae during the colder months and mature in the spring. The bottom line is that creepy crawlers can still be a concern in the fall and winter months.

Pest control should still be a priority in Baton Rouge, even after summertime. You might be asking yourself what kinds of insects stick around after summer’s end. Even though you don’t have to worry about mosquitoes and wasps, there are still plenty of pests to worry about. We’ve compiled a list of insects and pests to look out for:
