2017 Bug Barometer

Irregular Winter Patterns Increase Spring & Summer Pest Pressure

The National Pest Management Association (NPMA) recently released its annual Bug Barometer -- a guide for 2017's buggy Spring and Summer forecast, coast-to-coast. Due to an exceptionally milder winter temperatures across the county + heavy precipitation, Americans can expect those pesky pests to be out in full force this spring and summer. 

“With growing concern over infectious diseases spread by pests such as West Nile virus, Zika virus, Lyme disease and more, diligent prevention and awareness is especially necessary given the high pest populations that are projected for the warmer seasons ahead," said Jim Fredericks, Ph.D., chief entomologist and vice president of technical and regulatory affairs for the NPMA.

To develop the Bug Barometer, the NPMA’s staff entomologists combine pests’ biological behaviors with careful examination of previous weather conditions and forecasted weather patterns to predict how pest pressure will be impacted across the country.
