Australia’s hot summer heat attracts Cockroaches and Hordes of Huntsman Spiders!

I saw this recent article and it did make me sit up and take notice as we have also seen in Canberra a rise in the number of pests that continue to re-surface again.

  • A hot, dry summer is set to bring out increasing numbers of insects and spiders
  • Expert says insects are more active and breed faster in warmer temperatures
  • Parts of Australia are already experiencing high volumes of redback spiders
  • The nation is set to experience hot days and nights over the coming months

Australia is bracing for a scorching hot summer but it will not be just the warm weather residents will have to contend with.

Bugs and spiders will be out in increasing numbers as they take advantage of the sweltering conditions. ‘Insects don’t control their own body temperature, that’s done by the ambient temperatures,’ Mr Peters said.

‘The warmer it is, the more active insects are and the faster they breed. Heat and humidity will certainly affect their populations.

You also need to add ants to the list of annoying pests that will not seem to go away and usually there is a reason behind this is the fact that there could be an ants nest that has yet to be discovered that needs to be destroyed to stop the ants.
