It’s official. Some of the pests that most frequently scare us to death do so for a reason! Many people have phobias of pests, such as spiders, bees, wasps, hornets, flies, mice, rats… Well, the list goes on, but as most suspect, some common pests can actually be quite dangerous.

Identifying Bad Pests

Identifying your pests is the first step in controlling the problem. If you don’t have pests, then you are likely using some sort of monthly pest management services or even, doing it yourself. If you are seeing spiders and you’re not sure if it’s a “bad” spider, you need to call a pest control company. Spiders, even though not all are poisonous, can initiate allergic reactions in some people. There are many insects and rodents that are proven to carry life threatening diseases as well.

We could all agree, that just about any “creature” including bugs, rodents, spiders.. all have a place in our environment. BUT… we have to use common sense. They aren’t supposed to take up residency in our homes and some pests, such as the bald face hornet, you do not want in your garden. This hornet can cause major pain if you are stung, and unlike other bees, they can sting repeatedly. Capable of building huge nests, if startled, this hornet can kill a pet, small child or adult if attacked. In Florida you must inspect for these and other wasp, hornet and bees nests.

They usually hide in dark places, under piles of wood or boxes, in sheds, garages. Keeping these areas tidy, and having a pest control company inspect for nests is a great way to prevent them from getting in your home or garden.

Oh..the Brown recluse. They like to come out at night, hide in shoes and clothes, and can cause major problems for those who are bitten by them. In Florida, both the brown recluse and black widow are prominent.

Fire Ants and Allergic Reactions – Fire ants. If you’ve lived in Florida for any length of time, you’ve likely experienced being stung by fire ants. Fire ants can be extremely dangerous, especially for young children who may come in contact with a mound.  Fire ants can quickly consume your feet and legs and once they start stinging can cause major health problems, especially if you are allergic to their venom.
