2019 Spring/Summer Bug Barometer® Infographic

The National Pest Management Association (NPMA) released its bi-annual Bug Barometer®, a seasonal forecast of the pest pressure and activity Americans can expect to see in their respective regions of the country based on weather patterns and long-term predictions, as well as pest biological behaviors. According to the group’s team of entomologists, residual winter moisture coupled with wet forecasts ahead will cause pest populations to spike early in much of the continental U.S. this spring and summer.

The Bug Barometer was formulated by NPMA entomologists who analyzed past weather patterns, current weather trends and pest biology to determine the pest pressure index this fall and winter. Learn more about the Bug Barometer here.
