Australia is preparing for a hot summer but it will not be just the warm climate in which residents will have to contend.
Insects and spiders will multiply as they take advantage of the suffocating conditions.
Bryce Peters, from the University of Technology in Sydney, an expert in urban entomology and pest control, told Daily Mail Australia that warmer temperatures meant more insects.
"Insects do not control the temperature of their own body, that's done by the ambient temperature," Peters said.
"The hotter it is, the more insects are active and the faster they reproduce." The heat and humidity will surely affect their populations.

"If we have a hot and humid summer we will have very high populations."
Peters said more insects will also mean more spiders, like brawls and hunters.
"The spiders depend on the insect population to get their food, the insects will then support the spider population, the two go hand in hand," he said.
& # 39; The hotter it is, the better the insects will do. The better they do it, the more spiders do.
Cockroaches in particular love the warm weather.
"They will look for microclimates, for what they are inside our houses, the heat definitely sets them in motion," Peters said.

Already, residents are seeing spiders and insects in increasing numbers.
"Just because of my sprays that I've been doing in the last month, I've already noticed brawls (spiders) in greater numbers than in previous years," Michael McNelis, owner of Bug Stop Newcastle, north of Sydney, told Daily Mail Australia. .
"Normally they are mid-spring insects that appear a little later than they are now.
"I think it's because it's been so dry and the heat has arrived early."
McNelis anticipated that the warm weather "will make it a great year for redbacks and cockroaches in general."
"Last year was quite big compared to previous years, it's been an even more abnormal climate (this year)," he said.
This map shows the possibility of a higher average maximum temperature from October to December, which shows that much of Australia has an 80 percent chance of exceeding this limit.
"As far as mistakes are concerned, at this moment it seems more the end of spring than the beginning."
Some parts of Sydney reached a high of 29 degrees on Wednesday as the city began to savor the summer.
Earlier this week, experts warned that deadly snakes are slipping into suburban homes at an alarming rate as temperatures rise throughout Australia.
According to the latest weather forecasts from the Bureau of Meteorology, temperatures above the average that Australia has seen during much of 2018 will continue for the rest of the year.
From October to December, people across the country can not only expect their days to be uncomfortably hot, but they are also expected to increase temperatures overnight.
