Pet Pests

Jacksonville, FL, homeowners with pets should be on the alert about certain parasites that thrive in the area, such as:

American Dog Ticks

This tick species is responsible for the transfer of Rocky Mountain spotted fever and other illnesses. While they mostly bite dogs or come indoors on rodents, these pests may also feed on humans if hosts are scarce. Yards, fields, and hiking trails with tall grass are prime places to pick up ticks.


Fleas consume the blood of warm-bodied mammals, including cats, dogs, and people. Homeowners may find these pests on furniture and other places where pets sleep or living on the animals themselves. Flea infestations are most common in warm parts of the country, making them a problem in Florida.

Common Fall Pests

Located in the northern part of the state, Jacksonville deals with colder weather than many other large Florida cities. Falling temperatures drive insects inside looking for shelter, including:

Brown Marmorated Stink Bugs

This stink bug species overwinters in houses to survive cold weather. The pests get inside through openings like gaps under doors, windows, siding and foundation cracks, making it tough to keep them out. While the pests don't bite or sting, they do emit an unpleasant odor when crushed and create a nuisance by their flying around inside.

Asian Lady Beetles

These insects rest in large groups on light-colored walls exposed to sunlight. An Asian lady beetle isn't dangerous, but swarms of the pests on ceilings, lights, drapes, and windowsills are annoying to Jacksonville residents. When disturbed, the insects may release a foul-smelling liquid.
