Situated just north of Tampa Bay, Wesley Chapel has mild winters, hot summers, and abundant moisture. The combination of weather and undeveloped land provide the ideal conditions for a wide assortment of insects and other noxious pests. These interlopers make their way indoors as they search for water, food, and shelter from the elements. Whether they invade your kitchen, bathroom or other parts of your house or garden, you need fast, effective pest control to eliminate the infestation.
Ants are one of the most common pests in Wesley Chapel. Their scouts leave a scented trail for the colony to follow when they find a suitable location. Once ants gain a foothold inside your home, they are difficult to eradicate. There are many different types of ants found in Pasco County. Carpenter ants and fire ants are two of the most prevalent and destructive in this region. While some species spread diseases as they pillage your pantry and other food storage and preparation areas, carpenter ants build their colonies inside your walls and crawl spaces. Their destructive building method weakens the structural integrity of your house. Famous for their stinging bites, fire ants ruin the enjoyment of outdoor living spaces.
Capable of surviving for extended periods without nourishment, cockroaches are one of the world’s most resilient pests. Surveys show that homes in the region are more susceptible to cockroach infestations than other parts of the country because of the vast number of species inhabiting the area. Roaches prevalent in the Tampa Bay area include Australian and Asian varieties as well as small German cockroaches, which cause most infestations. There is also a large number of the American species that locals call palmetto bugs. Roaches contaminate food and food preparation surfaces with germs and allergens. Like ants, cockroaches lay scent trails that others follow. Prolific breeders, these pests reach adulthood in approximately 30 days. An infestation can quickly overwhelm your family.
Nearly 900 spider species of various sizes, shapes, and colors inhabit the Sunshine State. Many of these pests are not dangerous and prefer to live outside where they feed on other bugs and insects. Conversely, other spiders are venomous and can cause serious health problems if you or a family member is bitten. The brown recluse and false wolf spiders are among the most terrifying species. A bite from one of these arachnids can result in an emergency room visit. While most varieties prefer dark places like corners, the climatic conditions of the hideout can range from cool and damp to warm and dry. Because they eat other pests, a sudden increase in a spider population is a red flag that indicates that insects are infesting your house. Understanding the preferences of spiders and other pests increase the potential of eradicating the infestation and avoiding the problems that they cause.
