We researched the influence of climate change on pests

In recent years, the intricate relationship between climate change and its far-reaching consequences has come into sharper focus. One of the critical areas where this connection is becoming increasingly evident is the realm of pest dynamics. Climate change, driven primarily by human activities such as burning fossil fuels and deforestation, is leading to shifts in global temperatures, altered precipitation patterns, and changing ecosystems. These changes, in turn, are anticipated to have profound implications for pest behaviour and population dynamics.

As our planet warms, pests are expected to respond in diverse and often unpredictable ways. Rising temperatures and shifts in precipitation can directly influence pest lifecycles, altering their development rates, reproductive patterns, and geographical distribution. In some cases, warmer winters may allow certain pests to survive in regions where cold temperatures once limited them. Additionally, the extended growing seasons in certain areas can provide pests more opportunities to reproduce and thrive.

We gave you a guide on dealing with bed bugs in your home

Bed bugs, those tiny but tenacious pests, have been a source of distress for homeowners and travellers for centuries. However, in recent times, the world has witnessed a concerning upsurge in bed bug infestations, often referred to as the "bed bug pandemic." Originating in France, this global issue has now spread to various parts of the world. This blog delves into the top 5 tips for dealing with bed bugs and discuss the recent bed bug pandemic's origins, manifestations, and how to prevent them. As a trusted pest control company, Stratton Pest Control is here to guide you through these challenges and provide solutions.

Recognising the signs and symptoms of bed bugs is essential, as early detection can prevent a minor issue from turning into a full-blown infestation. Some common indicators include:

Bite Marks: Bed bug bites typically appear as itchy, red welts in a cluster or line. These bites often appear on exposed areas, such as the arms, legs, and neck.

Blood Stains: As bed bugs feed on their host's blood, they may leave behind small, reddish-brown stains on bedding and mattresses.

Dark Spots: Tiny dark spots on bedding or nearby areas could be bed bug excrement. These spots often resemble small ink dots.

Moulted Skins: Bed bugs shed their exoskeletons as they grow. Finding these moulted skins is a strong indicator of their presence.

Live Bed Bugs: Sometimes, you may spot live bed bugs, especially in the seams and creases of your mattress, box spring, or furniture.
