Insect Pests in Florida
Florida’s more-or-less tropical, humid climate perfectly suits a multitude of different insects. The moisture provides many species with opportunities to lay eggs in pools of water and dampens wood and other materials, making it easier for the bugs to find homes. The heat is also perfect for the insects, many of which would not survive colder temperatures. While some bugs don’t tend to bother people, here are some which may either invade your home or make it nearly impossible to enjoy being in your yard.
If you’ve lived in Florida for a long time, you have surely seen your fair share of roaches. These disgusting insects are extremely hard to get rid of on your own- they just always seem to find a way into your house, especially when it is storming outside. They carry a lot of bacteria and are generally unpleasant to have in your house.
Another common house pest in Florida are the flies. Either big or small, when they get into your house, they can be really irritating and hard to control. Though they are not as dreaded as roaches, they are an annoyance to everyone.
Especially if you have small children, one of the last things you want to find in your yard is a colony of fire ants. Everyone has been there- enjoying time outdoors only to accidentally step on an ant nest, and have dozens of angry insects crawling up your leg. Fire ant bites can be extremely painful, especially if you sustain several in one area.
When dusk approaches, many homeowners have to flee indoors to avoid the bothersome, blood-sucking mosquitoes. Those living near lakes or ponds experience the nuisance of mosquitoes most of all because mosquitoes require water to breed. In addition to their general annoyance, mosquitoes can also carry serious disease and viruses.
