You might think there aren’t many reasons to look forward to winter (despite what your one friend with a snowmobile keeps trying to tell you). However, there is one great thing about the cold months: certain pests tend to disappear. It’s like magic! Suddenly, you can go on walks without being assaulted by hordes of hungry mosquitos! You don’t have to worry about ants getting at your food! Sure, all that winter snow removal gets a little old, but hey, there are no bugs! ...But maybe you’re suspicious. What’s the catch with this pest situation? Where did they go? What are they planning? Two things about that. One: we’re worried about you. We think winter’s got you a little paranoid. Take care of yourself this season. It’s going to be alright! Two: you’re right to be paranoid. It’s true: although pests seem to disappear during the winter months, that doesn’t mean they can’t still find a way to be, well, pests. Here are the myriad ways that bugs we love, and some we don’t love so much, find to survive and thrive despite the cold and snow.
