Common Pests in Mesa, AZ
More on pests in your area
In the 1930s, red imported fire ants were accidentally brought into the United States from South America and are currently a problem for Mesa, AZ, residents. These stinging pests are most active during the summer months when they tunnel and build their nests in lawns. People who disturb nests are stung, often multiple times, and side effects can include joint stiffness, seizures, and even nerve damage in severe cases. To help keep these pests out of the home, seal cracks and crevices and don't let food sit out for too long.
Rats and mice will also infest Mesa homes in search of food and shelter. They contaminate food, cause uneasiness with their presence and transmit diseases to humans in multiple ways. People contract Hantavirus by breathing in microorganisms found in rodent urine and feces. Another rodent borne disease is rat-bite fever. This disease is spread through rodent contact, such as a bite or scratch, and from consuming food and water that is contaminated with the disease organism. Symptoms include fever, vomiting, headache, muscle pain, rash and swelling around the bite or scratch site. While death from rat bite fever is rare, if left untreated it may occur.
