There is a school of though that people being home more now because of the pandemic has made them more aware of their existing pest issue that went unnoticed before. That is definitely happening. But the fact that people are home more means that their activity is also attracting more pests.
As restaurants and businesses have shut down, the pests that used to feed at these places, make their way back to the neighborhoods. They basically follow the food. People are cooking and eating at home and the pests are coming to see if they can get in on some of that.
