Summers are rainy and humid in Clearwater, FL. Moisture that accumulates throughout the season allows many biting pests to thrive. Pools of rainwater in backyards make the perfect place for female mosquitoes to lay their eggs. Residents should be careful to protect themselves against mosquito bites since the insects can spread illnesses. Common mosquito diseases in Florida include West Nile virus, eastern equine encephalitis, and St. Louis encephalitis.
Also blood-drinking pests, deer flies gather in Clearwater neighborhoods to look for meals. These insects tend to feed on livestock, large wildlife, pets, or people, and their bites are painful. Additionally, the deer fly’s large size tends to startle residents.
Tiny biting flies called midges frequent coastal Florida cities like Clearwater. The pests easily infiltrate homes because of their small size. Females need to feed on blood before laying eggs, so they often bite humans and animals. Secondary infection may result from scratching itchy midge bites.

All sorts of spider species live in Florida, but those most dangerous to homeowners are the black widow and the brown recluse.
