Common Pest Identification & Prevention In Fayetteville, GA
Fayetteville and the surrounding areas of Georgia are overflowing with pests of all sorts. As your local pest control company, Ennis Exterminating has gained a lot of knowledge about the most common Georgia pests over the last two decades of service. We’ve gathered that knowledge together in our Pest Library so that you can learn the information you need to know about the pests you might find in your home or business.
We know ants as those pesky invaders of our homes and yards. They regularly find their way onto our properties to search for food and sometimes shelter. A few of the reasons why these pests are so difficult to control are that these social creatures create large colonies.
Carpenter bees are mostly black, with males having a white or yellow face. You can also identify these pests by the round, smooth holes they create in pieces of wood. Finding their nest’s entrance holes on your home’s exterior or wooden structures in your yard indicates that these pests are present.
Cockroaches are oval-shaped insects that find their way into our Georgia houses, take over our kitchens, and turn our homes into someplace we would rather not be. These pests thrive because our homes and businesses often provide them with food and water.
Fleas & Ticks
Fleas and ticks are biting pests that feed on both human and animal blood and are a common problem in our Georgia yards. They move onto our properties on the backs of their animal hosts, where their eggs and larvae develop into new biting pests.
Mice are a small species of commensal rodents. Commensal means “to share our table,” and species of mice like house mice and field mice have come to rely on people to provide them with their basic needs. Both species are common invaders of Georgia homes and businesses.
Mosquitoes are regular invaders of our Georgia outdoor spaces; the heat and humidity of our summers allow these small flies to thrive. In order to produce their eggs, female mosquitoes must have blood meals, satisfying their hunger with the blood of people and warm-blooded animals.
Scorpions are a type of arachnid, and like all arachnids, adults have eight legs. A scorpion also has pair of large claws and a segmented tail that curls up over its body. At the end of the tail is a stinger used to paralyze prey and defend themselves from threats.
Without spiders and other similar predators, nuisance insects, and pests that destroy our gardens and crops, our outdoor spaces would take over our properties. However, it is safe to say that no one wants to have their indoor or outdoor spaces overrun with these eight-legged intruders.
Yellow jackets, wasps, hornets, and mud daubers are wanted out in nature, but unwanted in our yards and homes. When it comes to stinging insects, there is always a delicate balance between protecting these eco-important insects and protecting our family from their potential dangers.
Termites are a serious pest problem that homeowners in Georgia need to guard their homes against. In our region, these pests remain active throughout the entire year, meaning that at any point, if your home is not protected, it could become infested with these damaging pests.
