The red imported fire ant was unintentionally brought to Mobile, Alabama, from South America around 1918. Since then, this pest has spread to various parts of the country, including throughout the state of Texas. It’s estimated that currently the fire ant has taken up residence in two-thirds of Texas and is continuing to spread to other parts of the state. Early attempts to eradicate the insect were a failure and the red imported fire ants remain a common pest in San Antonio residences. Homes with fire ant infestations often require continued treatments to keep these pests at bay.
The tawny crazy ant, scientific name Nylanderia fulva, has been increasingly making its way into the homes of San Antonio residents. This ant was first found in Houston in 2002 and has continued to spread throughout the state of Texas. The tawny crazy ant is a very invasive ant species that can carry pathogens and cause the displacement of other pests.
These ants nest in walls and crawl spaces and can cause serious damage to the internal part of a home and most notably home electrical equipment. This type of ant cannot be terminated by over-the-counter pesticides, so it’s best to call the professionals if you find yourself facing a tawny crazy ant infestation.
San Antonio is home to several different species of roaches with the most notable roach types being the German and American cockroaches. The American cockroach is the most common type of roach found in San Antonio. This roach species is recognizable by its solid brown appearance. American roaches are typically one-to-two inches long and can fly more than 100 feet in the air. These roaches are most commonly found infesting San Antonio residences with excess foliage around the home.
German cockroaches are another common roach variety found in San Antonio homes. These roaches are much smaller than their American counterparts and are not able to fly. German roaches typically nest in small areas located close to water sources in the home such as sinks. This roach variety is not only a nuisance but can also be dangerous; German roaches can cause respiratory illness in children and spread other infectious diseases throughout the home. German roaches require special extermination measures to be taken, so if you find one of these roaches in your home, call an exterminator as soon as possible.
Mosquitos thrive in San Antonio thanks to the humidity and warm temperatures. The most common types of mosquitos found in Texas include the house mosquito, the Asian tiger mosquito, the yellow fever mosquito, and the southern mosquito. All of these mosquitos are a nuisance and can make their way into your San Antonio home. Signs you may need to consider extermination services for mosquitos include constant bite marks on the skin, mosquitos in your home, stagnant water, and damp soil in your flower beds.
Fleas and ticks are two common pests found in the homes of San Antonians. There are more than 2,000 species of fleas as well as an abundance of ticks in Texas, making these pests one of the most common reasons for extermination in the area. Fleas and ticks can cause annoying and itchy bites on the skin and can cause harm to pets.
Once fleas or ticks enter the home, they can leave eggs that can quickly increase the population of these pests in a residence. Proper flea and tick control services can relieve you of these common household pests and is recommended for the initial control of an infestation. Once you have received pest control services, be sure to vacuum daily and regularly wash all bedding to keep these pests away.
Termites can cause serious damage to San Antonio homes. A termite is a wood-destroying insect that can wreak havoc on the integrity of a home’s structure which can cost thousands of dollars in repairs. The Super Termite, also known as the Formosan Subterranean Termite, is the most destructive termite species in the San Antonio area. A solid termite protection plan can ensure your home remains structurally sound and that damage is prevented.
Black widow spiders are a dangerous pest that can make their way into the homes of San Antonio residents. These spiders are shiny and black in appearance with a distinctive red hourglass shape on their abdomens. Their bites are painful and dangerous and often require immediate medical attention. While the bite of a black widow spider is not often fatal, it can be especially dangerous to young children and the elderly. Spider-specific treatment is often required to rid your home of these pests.
