SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) - With more sub freezing nights expected into the weekend, it's a tough week to be a bug.
Mosquitoes, flying and biting insects are pretty much done with for the year now that much colder air has arrived.
At times this year, these bugs have been difficult to deal with.
"At the beach they were pretty bad, actually we got attacked pretty good when we were camping and stuff like that so it'll be nice to get out and not have them biting us and go out and do things," said Andrea Harrington from Springfield.
With nights below freezing and daytime temperatures barely into the 50s, these temperatures are not prime for outdoor insects.
As a result of the cold they die or in the case of honey bees, they slow town almost to the point of hibernation until next spring.
While it might not be as buggy next time you go for a walk in the woods. What you might find more buggy now is the inside of your home.
"Occasional invaders, the stink bugs, the lady bugs, the western conifer seed bugs and the cluster flies. those are guys that are going to move in during these transitional temperatures," said Bob Russell, an entomologist at American Pest Solutions in Springfield.
Inside the home, it's not just bugs that are a problem this time of year, but also mice which are now in the process of growing their families.
Ticks are a bit more resilient to the cold and probably won't completely go away until snow is on the ground.
