The National Pest Management Associations 2017 Fall & Winter Bug Barometer. The 2018 should be similar to last years bug population.
- Summer recap: Relatively warmer, with heavier rain in some areas
- Stink bugs and ladybugs flourished from consistent rainfall and warm temperatures. Expect an unusually higher number of these insects to move indoors as temperatures drop. Tick populations that spiked from the previous milder winter will continue to soar until the weather cools, which is when rodents will move indoors for shelter.
