Miami Pest Pressure
The warm weather and oceanfront location of Miami, FL, are just as welcome to insects and wildlife as they are to people. Local residents often have to deal with these pests indoors:
These pests travel by clinging to and hitchhiking in luggage, used furniture, and clothes, so a densely populated city like Miami with year-round tourism has the right conditions for bed bug infestations. Once in homes, the pests feed on human blood at night and hide in tiny cracks during the day.
Rodents have adapted to living around people. Nesting in remote areas like attics, ceiling voids, and dense outside vegetation, the roof rat enters homes looking for food and shelter. Infestations cause costly damage when the pests gnaw walls and wiring. Their waste can also carry important human and pet related diseases.
Miami’s humid weather provides the perfect climate for cockroaches. Since they like moisture, the insects flourish in damp sewers and mulch. Drawn to light and often accidentally being brought indoors with infested items, they find their way indoors, where they spread germs, contaminate food, and trigger allergies.
Miami homeowners also encounter a variety of outdoor pests, such as:
In Miami, water runoff and stagnant, poorly maintained swimming pools give mosquito populations ample breeding grounds. The pests are common vectors for the spread of disease. Through their bites, Florida mosquitoes can infect people with West Nile virus and many other illnesses.
Sharing the yard with stinging insects can be unpleasant. Attracted to outdoor gatherings by sugary foods and trash, hornets and other wasps often come into conflict with Florida residents. These pests sting repeatedly and even release a signal that calls others to assist in protection of their nest. Hornet stings can be painful and dangerous, especially to those with allergies.
Living in low growing brushy and tall grass areas, ticks latch onto people and pets to consume their blood. Due to the area’s warm weather, they are year-round residents of parks and lawns. In Miami, the blacklegged tick can carry Lyme disease, also known as Lyme borreliosis, which is serious and is sometimes tough to accurately diagnose.
