Common Pests in Jacksonville, AR
More on pests in your area
Frequent rainfall and flooding in Jacksonville, AR, often drives pests into local homes. Silverfish and centipedes are found in damp spaces such as under sinks or in bathrooms, crawl spaces, garages, and basements. Silverfish love to feed on processed paper and plant products like books, leather, fur, carpets, and starched fabrics. While centipedes prey on silverfish, their startling speed and creepy-crawly appearance makes most homeowners unlikely to welcome the pests.
Hot, humid summers and mild winters in Jacksonville also attract stinging and biting pests. While most spiders found locally, such as common house and jumping spiders, are harmless, some dangerous species do live in Arkansas. Black widow and brown recluse spiders can deliver painful and dangerous bites. Bald-faced and European hornets also appear around homes during warm weather, often building their paper nests in high places like trees, under roof eaves, and attics. The sting of both species may cause severe reactions in those allergic to their venom.
