It’s important to take steps to prevent your yard from being taken over by pests. However, which pests should you be worried about? Not all pests are common in local outdoor spaces, and even fewer present a significant threat. To help you focus pest control efforts and give you a better idea of which pests our team in Dunedin generally target the most, we’ll go through some of the most common threats to your yard below.
Common Pests in the Region
Out of all the invasive pests that can creep into your home’s outdoor spaces, there are three types that stand out. Here’s a quick overview of these pests, why they’re a threat to have in your outdoor spaces, and where you can generally find them:
Fleas are commonly thought of as little pests that can annoy your pets, but they can actually invade your outdoor spaces and cover you with itchy bites. These pests can also make it into your indoor spaces, where they can become an even bigger problem. Outside, fleas can generally be found in cool, dark places, like in dense greenery.
Ticks—due to their ability to carry diseases like Rocky Mountain spotted fever and Lyme disease—are some of the most dangerous pests that can creep into your home’s outdoor areas. Mice, rats, and other small animals are typically responsible for bringing ticks onto your property, which is why you can generally find ticks anywhere these animals hang out.
Mosquitoes can spread rapidly throughout your home’s outdoor spaces once they start laying eggs, making it essential to act quickly once you spot them buzzing around. These pests lay their eggs near sources of standing water, which is where you can generally find them congregating.
