Common Pests in North Miami, FL
More on pests in your area
The suburban city of North Miami is located in northeast Miami-Dade County. Its climate, population and geographical location are all contributors to the pests that can be found in the region. Cockroaches, for example, can thrive in heavily populated areas where there are ample food, water and sheltering sites present. According to research from the University of Florida, there are 69 varying species of cockroaches found in the U.S. These pests hide out in sheltered, dark places during the daytime hours and come out at night to feed, which can make them especially difficult to detect and identify.
A cockroach infestation can be identified by shed body parts, droppings, and their unpleasant odor. Cockroaches can pose a risk to human health, as they produce allergens that can trigger allergies and asthma. North Miami residents can take action to help prevent roaches in the home by eliminating water sources, as the pest can survive multiple weeks without food, but depends on water to live. Additionally, homeowners are encouraged to work with a professional pest management specialist. Trained professionals have the tools and training to help rid a home of an infestation through integrated pest management. North Miami renters who suspect an infestation should promptly reach out to the building supervisor or landlord.
Another pest that thrives in South Florida is the termite. These tiny, wood-eating pests can be especially problematic for homeowners. Termites can destroy the integrity of a home, eating away wood in structures. Termites thrive where moisture is present, which makes Florida’s warm, humid climate optimal. Residents can help keep termites at bay by eliminating both indoor and outdoor sources of water, including leaking pipes and clogged downspouts. Additionally, homeowners are advised to work with a termite treatment professional on an annual basis to inspect the home for damage, which includes peeling wallpaper and hollow-sounding wood.
