Pest Activity Trends Gleaned From Consumers

Pest activity trends have been studied by etymologists, pest control companies and other expert sources, but here’s a unique approach: Determine pest activity trends by the number of people who enter the pest into the Google search box. 

Pest Activity Trends: Benefit of Using Google to Determine

Why research pest activity trends based on Google searches? Because now we’re looking at literally millions of reports vs. the studies of a few experts. Literally every person who enters the name of a pest into the Google search box becomes a field study researcher. They saw the pest, and went to Google to find a solution. In the process, they inadvertently reported their pest sighting.

Pest Activity Trends: Where?

We used the city of Stamford Connecticut as our test area and measured only the Google “pest sightings” from that city. The total population of Stamford CT during this study was recorded as 122,643 by the U.S. Census Bureau.

Pest Activity Trends: Law of Large Numbers

So, just how many “reports” are we taking into account? Keeping in mind that we’re drawing our information from a population of only 122,643, the numbers are pretty large. During peak months for each pest, we’re seeing between 1-3 thousand searches for each pest. Imagine if we took into account the entire U.S. For example, in Stamford CT, flea reports peak at about 3,000 in September. A search of the entire U.S. shows flea reports also peak in September, but the number of Google searches for the U.S. is 5,134,400!! That represents a lot of itchy dogs!

We can assume that when the searches drop off, it’s because the pest is not sighted as often, and therefore not as active or visible.

Pest Activity Trends: Prepare vs. Wait

It’s said that “an ounce of preparation is worth a pound of cure”. Why not prepare for the coming of pests this year?
