What time of year are bugs most active?

Most bugs are most active Spring through Autumn. At around 40 degrees Fahrenheit, insects lose mobility. Many insects hibernate or have other means to survive the cold winters. Insects don’t become fully functional until temperatures reach 70 degrees. In April, when the weather is warm, bugs quickly multiply to replenish their populations. By summer and early fall, bug populations are at their peak. 

In states like California or Florida where there are regions where temperatures do not drop lower than an average of 40 degrees Fahrenheit, bugs might remain active year-round. Mosquitoes, termites, and ants are among these pests.  

Some pests seek refuge in homes during winter. These include roaches, ladybugs, stink bugs, and silverfish. Bugs are attracted to the shelter and warmth of a home. Especially in places where many bugs do not have winter routines, they might seek refuge in your home to survive the winter chill.
