Ants, wasps and other airborne insects, OH MY! They are invading Sussex and are set to come out in record numbers for the rest of the summer. The UK gardens are reporting a huge spike in insect repellents due to the increase of flying insects.
The worker variety of insects like wasps are coming out in high force due to the hot and dry summer this year. Wasps in particular enjoy when the weather cools off, giving them the ability to go and hunt for food for their queen. The forthcoming cooler weather makes this time of year a heaven for them. Weather will forecast the population of insects like wasps and flying ants. If a spring and summer are particularly hot, it provides a breeding ground for them to reproduce at alarming rates, allowing all of the population to swarm at once with the onset of cooler weather.
One researcher has said that it is a bumper year for insects. Meaning the spike in wasp and flying ant population is through the roof. They have become very active and you should be on the watch for infestations.
If you think you may be susceptible to a wasp or ant infestation, call your local pest control company to come inspect and come up with a plan of attack to eliminate the issues.
