It goes without saying, when temperatures drop, most animals, including bugs, go into a sort of hibernation mode.
The only difference is bugs simply diapause; this means they pause on their development.
Bugs like mosquitoes, black flies, and gnats will go away in the winter months because they can’t stand outside temperatures.
However, for bed bugs, since they live indoors and if the indoor temperatures feel like spring or summer, they will still be active in your home.
So, in simpler terms, yes, you can still have a bed bug problem in winter; they feed irrespective of the temperatures outdoors.
How about a new infestation?
A slightly better circumstance is you won’t get any new infestation.
As we mentioned before, bugs go on diapause in the winter months. Bed bugs are no exception, they are not cold-resistant, and they find it hard to move around during this time of the year.
So, you may see a few bed bug bites, but with a steady warm indoor temperature, you might not notice the difference in their infestation because they might still be very active.
However, the bottom line is, every season is a perfect time to get rid of bed bugs. Act fast by calling in bed bug specialists as soon as you get wind of bed bug infestation in your home.
