House Flies and Biting Flies
Of the thousands of species of flies, only a few are common around the home. The house fly, stable fly, deer fly, and several species of garbage fly. These pests breed in animal wastes and decaying organic material from which they can pick up bacteria and viruses that may cause human diseases
There are about 170 species of mosquitoes nationally. Adult females bite and may transmit diseases (malaria, filariasis, arthropod-borne viruses such as yellow fever, denge and encephalitis. Saliva, injected by females while engorging on blood causes itching.
Wasps and Dirt Daubers
Yellow jackets, bumble bees, and dirt daubers have individuals in the colony whose task it is to defend the nest. If the nest is disturbed, these individuals will defend it vigorously. The venoms of bees and wasps are different, so having a severe reaction to a wasp sting does not mean a person will have the same reaction to a bee stings.
There are many species of spiders throughout the nation. Black Widow and Brown Recluse Spider – are generally found to the southern states and their venom is poisonous. Seek medical attention as soon as possible if a bite is suspected from either of these spiders.
Scorpions are close relatives of ticks, mites and spiders. Two poisonous species can be found in the southwestern states like Arizona, California, New Mexico, and Texas. During the day scorpions hide under stones, in rock piles, in cracks in masonry, in wood piles, under shoes and clothing, and under the bark of trees.
There are several species of cockroaches, all have flattened bodies that allow them to enter homes through cracks around loose-fitting doors, windows and walls. Although not shown to be direct carriers of disease, they can contaminate food and kitchen utensils with excrement and salivary secretions and leave an unpleasant odor.
Fleas and Ticks
Adults (fleas) bite pets and humans; bites are irritating and can potentially transmit diseases; consumption of fleas can also result in the transmission of tapeworms; constant scratching of itchy flea bites can result in other skin problems and allergic reactions.
Ants and Fire Ants
Ants are among the most prevalent pests in households, often entering buildings seeking food and water, warmth and shelter, or a refuge from dry, hot weather or flooded conditions. Red Imported Fire Ants have infested more than 300 million acres of land in the United States destroying crops, killing livestock and wildlife.
