Common Pests in Fayetteville, AR
More on pests in your area
Drugstore beetles and Asian lady beetles are common pests in Fayetteville, AR, a large city often sheltered from extreme weather by the surrounding Ozark Mountains. Although named for their habit of feeding on pills, drugstore beetles damage all kinds of plant and animal products. The pests are especially fond of dry foods like pasta, pet food, and spices. During the summer and fall, Asian lady beetles migrate indoors seeking warmth and shelter. These pests stain surfaces, release unpleasant smells when crushed, and disgust homeowners by gathering around light fixtures and baseboards.
Fayetteville's high humidity and frequent rainfall attract mosquitoes and termites. Mosquitoes are blood-sucking insects (only the females feed on blood; males feed on plant nectar) that thrive near standing water. Not only can property values drop around breeding sites, but the pests pass diseases to humans through their bites. Arkansas officials have reported several cases of West Nile virus and encephalitis due to mosquitoes. Subterranean termites are also common in the Fayetteville area. They endanger residents by weakening structural wood in homes. Species found locally are drawn to damp wood near crawl spaces, walls, and subfloors.
