Some Like it Cold

Summer pests such as mosquitoes and hornets are a distant memory when the temperature drops, but there are some pests that can cause issues all year long.

A new species of cockroach never before seen in the United States has been identified in New York City and is known to withstand colder temperatures than many of its cousins. Researchers have also found that bed bugs don’t succumb to colder temperatures for days – living up to two days when kept in -4 degree Fahrenheit conditions.
