There’s plenty to love about living in Florida. It’s a vacation paradise for a reason. Great weather – lots of activities – and of course, no matter where you live in Florida – you’re never far from some of the most beautiful beaches in the world.
While living in Florida is great – it does come at a price. That same warm beautiful weather we humans crave also makes Florida home to a wide variety of insects and other pests.
Inside your home, some of the more common Florida pests you’re likely to see are the Asian cockroach which is virtually identical in appearance to the German cockroach. These creepy critters will invade any opening in a house and once inside, they aren’t shy about making themselves at home in your house. Their peak activity period of Asian cockroaches is early evening so you’ll realize this pest has invaded your home as one crawls across the television screen during your favorite show.
Another common pest in Florida homes and businesses are bedbugs. Unlike Asian cockroaches which are active when we are, bedbugs wait to feed until you and your family are fast asleep. Often, the first sign of a bedbug infection is waking up with bug bites. When caught early, bedbug infestations can usually be effectively controlled .
Outside your home. fire ants are a huge problem for Florida residents. This Florida pest is known for creating visible mounds in yards, gardens and pretty much anywhere they can reach. They’ve been known to create mounds inside of homes! Fire ants are small, black or reddish brown and are very aggressive. They are notorious for their painful, burning sting. Some people have allergic reactions to fire ant stings that range from rashes and swelling to paralysis, or anaphylactic shock. In rare instances, severe allergic reactions cause death.
Another major issue for Florida homeowners are termites and other wood destroying insects. When you read about the number of different insects which feast upon the structure of Florida homes and businesses -it’s a wonder we have any buildings left standing in the Sun Shine State!
These are just a few of the many pests which afflict Florida residents. However, you don’t have to resign yourself to sharing your Florida space with insects and pests. Many Florida residents employ the services of pest control professionals to keep their Florida homes delightfully pest free.
