When Is Bed Bug Season Over in Jacksonville?
January 11, 2019
While some pests come and go with the changing seasons, bed bugs remain active throughout the entire year. This is because bed bugs live almost exclusively inside man-made structures and have access to a constant food source; they feed on our blood. So, while some pests are forced into dormancy or hibernation because of dwindling food supplies, bed bugs can get a meal all year long and live in a home indefinitely.
Why Bed Bugs Are Still Around
You may have read somewhere that pests go away in the winter time. Sadly, here in Jacksonville, Florida, this just isn’t the case. And, even if it was the case, bed bugs are an indoor pest, meaning they can survive and thrive no matter what the temperature is outdoors.
Infesting The Holidays
Many families traveled this holiday season. Are you one of them? For many Americans, the holiday season is a time of visiting relatives, taking vacations, or just plain spending time away from home. For bed bugs, it’s a time of movement. As bags are packed, and people move from place to place, bed bugs hitch rides too and from, infesting new areas. If your home has even a small infestation of bed bugs before you leave, not only is there a chance you could have brough bed bug surprises along with your Christmas presents to share with unsuspecting relatives, but you may also find more than a small infestation when you got back. This raises some serious concerns and may leave you asking, “What can I do?”.
