Pests are a serious challenge for many households in America. They come in all shapes and sizes, but all are equally irritating when invading people’s homes. They not only cause enormous damage to houses and buildings, but may also harm people’s health and wellbeing. Whether you are dealing with ants, spiders, cockroaches, or scorpions, our pest control professionals will help you get rid of them effectively and safely.
The most common pests in Arizona
Being as beautiful as it is, Arizona is very attractive for many insects, including pests. Fleas, ticks, ants, scorpions, spiders, cockroaches, bed bugs, mice and rats are some of the most common pests in our state.
Fleas are widespread pests that can be vectors of various diseases and infections. In Arizona, the most common type of fleas is the cat type. These fleas attach to cats and other pets to feed and live deep in their fur. They can also bite people and spread infections. If your pet is suffering from fleas, it will scratch itself more often. This is one of the sure signs you have to deal with these little invaders not only to protect your pet, but to protect your own health as well.
Another pest species commonly found in Arizona are ticks. According to recent research, there are over twenty tick species in the area. As a typical female tick lays over five thousand eggs during its lifetime, it is essential to deal with these pests in a timely manner. If the ticks are not taken care of properly and quickly, their population may increase rapidly and be hazardous to your health. They can carry Lyme Disease, Rocky Mountain spotted Fever and other serious diseases.
Ants are some of the most common pests in the US. In Arizona, there are over three hundred ant species, which is a lot more than any other state in America. Common ant species include Pharaoh ants and Black ants, but you can eventually stumble upon Fire ants, too. While the Pharaoh and Black species are frequent in people’s homes, they are not aggressive.
Fire ants, on the other hand, are known as a very aggressive type of ants and can trigger allergic reactions in people. Regardless of their small size, their sting is painful and irritating. They can cause serious harm to rodents, turtles, and other small animals. However, by performing proper pest control methods on a regular basis, you can keep your environment safe and free from these little invaders.
Alongside ants, spiders are among the most common pests in AZ. They come in many different shapes and sizes, some being extremely dangerous. The most dangerous spider species are the well-known Brown Recluse and Black Widow. If you come across either one of these spider species, it is important to contact a highly professional pest control team and ensure a safe living environment.
The Brown Recluse spider loves dark, hidden places and can therefore be found in your garage, basement and other parts of the house. These spiders create their webs near the ground, appearing chaotic. Their bite can cause nausea, fever, weakness, as well as severe nerve damage and necrosis.
The Black Widow is also famous for its unusually shaped webs, mostly outside in the house corners. However, this doesn’t make the spider less harmful to humans. Its poison is considered extremely dangerous – it’s a dozen times stronger than the poison of the Pit Viper snake.
5. Bark Scorpion
Another common pest type in the Arizona area is the Bark Scorpion. This scorpion is one of the most poisonous types living in this part of the US. The Bark Scorpion can cause long-lasting pain combined with a sensation of itching and numbness, and loss of breath. These scorpions usually hide under wood piles and rocks, waiting for their opportunity to enter houses through any tiny entry spots.
Cockroaches are a frequently found type of pests that causes headaches to many house owners in the US, especially Arizona. These pests are small, but carry numerous germs and harmful diseases. They usually prefer warm and moist environments, and can be found in bathrooms and kitchens, hiding beneath kitchen appliances or wall cracks.
Cockroaches consume people’s food, but they also feed on decaying plants and animals. While most species of roach are rather small and live indoors, the American cockroach species is quite larger and normally lives outdoors. The cockroaches produce a specific odor, which causes them to stay in groups. Other cockroaches that invade homes and buildings in Arizona are the Brown-banded and Oriental roaches. They can cause a number of health risks, since they spread dangerous bacteria.
