By Tom Bowers, USA TODAY The pumpkin bug can strike anywhere, including at the backyard, according to a new study.
The findings by a team of researchers in the United States and Canada suggest that the bug is more likely to be found in a sunny environment, such as a park or lawn, where the insects are feeding, when the weather is warm, and where a good soil condition is in place.
If you have a sunny, warm home with good soil conditions, such an environment could also be a good place to avoid the bug.
Researchers at the University of Illinois in Urbana-Champaign and their Canadian counterparts, also at the university, looked at pumpkin bugs that had been collected from more than 1,000 backyard gardens across the United Kingdom.
The team found that while there is a correlation between pumpkin bugs and other garden pests, they didn’t find a correlation.
The researchers also looked at the number of different kinds of garden bugs, and the number and size of the bugs.
The pumpkin bugs, which are about the size of a grapefruit, are often called “pumpkin grubs” because of their red color.
But because they have little eyes and mouths, they aren’t really bugs.
The researchers say the number one cause of the bug problem is overwintering.
The study, published online this week in the Journal of Environmental Entomology, found that the number, size and location of the pumpkin bugs varies from year to year, with the majority of the species being found in gardens.
But even if the pumpkin bug is a fairly common insect in a garden, there are many other garden plants that produce them, such the cabbage and cabbage patch, the squash and sweet potato, the apple and apple tree, the plum tree, and even the pumpkin.
For the researchers, this is important because the bugs are spreading.
There are about 1.2 billion pumpkin bugs in the world, and a lot of them are in gardens, the study said.
And they’re getting more widespread as the population of the gardeners grows.
The scientists collected the bugs in a series of tests and found that there was a high correlation between the number in a backyard garden and the frequency of the infection.
They found that about 70% of all garden bugs were collected from backyard gardens in the U.K., and most of them were from gardens in England and Wales.
They also found that a majority of these bugs were found in the warmest weather.
The number of bugs was higher in gardens where soil conditions were good, the researchers found.
But in gardens that were cold, wet, damp or even the opposite, the bugs tended to be more common.
And the bugs were more common in gardens with high soil moisture, especially in gardens close to the garden entrance.
These conditions could be due to the fact that the garden is in the sun for more than a day, the authors wrote.
The bugs were most prevalent in gardens containing water sources that were either open or partially flooded.
The water supply could be the water that is stored in a pool or a garden hose.
And it could also have to do with how the gardener handles the water.
The authors noted that people with wet hands or other injuries, such from gardening, could also transmit the infection to the water source.
The report did not indicate how many people actually got infected.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration has issued guidance on how to treat and manage the bug, and there is no vaccine.
The report does note that it is important to keep a close eye on gardeners and keep their gardens free of water.
