Mild winter means busy spring for pests

Mild winter means busy spring for pests

According to Punxsutawney Phil, there are six more weeks of winter, but for much of the country this has been one of the mildest winters on record.  With several bouts of 50 and 60-degree days, people are delighted and Mother Nature is becoming confused. Being able to take afternoon walks in winter is a welcome surprise, but an early influx of pesky insects much less so.

Many insects hibernate during the cold winter months, but as this winter has been anything but typical, they may be emerging from their hiding places much earlier than we expect,² noted Missy Henriksen, vice president of public affairs for the National Pest Management Association (NPMA). Several states have even reported tick sightings, which is especially worrisome as people head outdoors to enjoy the weather and are unprepared for tick encounters.
