Excerpt from the article:
With summer’s end just around the corner, PCT checked in with pest management professionals from various parts of the country to find out how this summer’s weather impacted pest pressure – and thus business. It was another summer of weather extremes and, generally speaking, this was good news for pest control businesses.
Several areas of the country, including Texas, experienced extreme heat and drought conditions. Eric Melass, president of Killum Pest Control, Houston, Texas, said Greater Houston has had triple-digit temperatures in more than three-fourths of the days of each month of June and July. “We are starting to see quite a bit of activity for native crazy ants. Other than technicians having to work in this exceptional heat, the summer business has been great. We are super busy.”
