Most Common Pests in Florida:
Generally, ants are most active during warmer seasons. This is especially true during the summer because they need to gather enough food to make it through the winter. The hotter and drier the weather is, the more inclined ants are to search your home or business for food and water. Ants are attracted to potential food sources which may come in the forms of crumbs, food residue, dirty dishes that are left out, or trash that is not often emptied. Ants can enter your homes and buildings through the tiniest of cracks, such as those in foundations and around windows and doors.
In Florida cockroaches remain active all year long. The overall lack of cold weather allows them to breed and flourish without entering diapause, which is similar to hibernation; As cockroaches are in this warm environment with food and water, such as a home or business, they may continue their activity through the winter. Windows, garages, drains, and sewer pipes are also common entryways, and some species can fly in when attracted to a light source. They can also be brought in on infested items like cardboard. Cockroaches are drawn to areas that are dark and have a source of food and water. They will usually go where there are other cockroaches using an aggregation pheromone deposited in the fecal spots. Things like crumbs and pet food that is left out overnight or not cleaned from floors are potential food sources for cockroaches and therefore may attract them.
Silverfish are indoor pests. This means that, as long as their living conditions remain ideal, they can feed and lay eggs year round. Silverfish are nocturnal and are only active during the day if the area they inhabit is dark. Silverfish may enter a home or business through easy access entry ways, such as cracks and crevices, windows and doors, in search of a warm, damp living environment. With this, they are also in search of a source of food. Some such sources are paper, cardboard, fabrics, stored food, glue, and shampoo. The most common way for silverfish to enter a building is by being brought in on infested items like boxes and packages.
Termites swarm at different times of year depending on weather and species. Drywood and dampwood termites typically swarm during late summer into fall, generally from August to November. In South Florida, drywood termite swarms can be seen from April through October. Dampwood and drywood termites live inside their food sources, so a building that has any wood is at risk for housing a nest. Drywood termites can also travel into a home on used or outdoor furniture that is brought inside. Southern states like Florida are more likely to experience termite infestations, as termites thrive in the warm weather and constant humidity. Drywood termites inside the home or attic areas may take 4-7 years from initial infestation to the first signs of visible evidence and damage.
Spiders tend to be most active when the males come out to mate, which is usually during August and September. The spiders seen during this time are more than likely males that have been hiding inside throughout the year and are now searching for mates. Spiders can enter homes or businesses through cracks and crevices, any small spaces, like the gaps around doors and windows. They may enter in search of food, moisture, mates, or shelter. Spiders may be attracted to a property by favorable living environments or the presence of insects and other prey. They can also travel into a building on objects such as firewood, plants, camping equipment, or items that have been in a storage area.
Mosquitoes do not like temperatures lower than 50 degrees Fahrenheit, so their activity will typically cease once cooler weather arrives. Depending on the species, they will either spend the winter as eggs which hatch in the spring or as adults living in caves, cellars, and sewers. However they spend the winter, mosquitoes will begin their activity again once temperatures are consistently 50 degrees or higher. Because of this, southern states like Florida will typically see mosquitoes sooner and in higher numbers than in northern states. Mosquitoes are attracted to damp, hot climates. They look for any form of stagnant water, as that is where they lay their eggs.
Bed bugs become more active between June and October due to the increased heat and humidity. They also spread more during this time because of the increase in travel. Bringing bed bugs into your home is easy and common. While they cannot jump, they are very good travelers. Bed bugs can be picked up from places such as movie theater seats, restaurants, and hotels. They transfer to personal belongings like overnight bags, luggage, or even you, and in turn they transfer to places in your home or business. A single pregnant female can lead to more than 300 adults and 1000 new eggs in just three months, which can cause an infestation to worsen rapidly.
