Tallahassee Pest Pressure
Not every pest can flourish in the long, hot Tallahassee, FL, summers. Those that do include:
Centipedes are found outdoors just under the soil surface, under rocks, mulch, or under debris such as grass clippings. Inside they like to gather in Florida basements and bathrooms. In such a humid climate, good ventilation is vital to avoid the damp conditions that attract these arthropods. The house centipede doesn’t spread diseases or cause structural issues, but it’s still unpleasant to see the pests darting across the floor.
Earwigs need warmth and moisture to survive. While they thrive in Tallahassee’s hot weather, they often gather in bathrooms to get the humidity they require. The pests feed on houseplants and can cause very minor pain with their pincers. However, earwigs prefer to scamper away rather than bite when they feel threatened.
Though Tallahassee winters are short, they still drive pests indoors. Residents may find the following inside:
Black Widow Spiders
These venomous spiders are easy to recognize by their red hourglass marking on the underside of their body. While they prefer to flee from humans, conflicts do happen. Black widow spider bites can be very serious if untreated and the bite victim is highly allergic to the spider’s venom.
Stink bugs overwinter in the walls of Tallahassee homes. Though the pests are mostly harmless, stink bug populations can reach overwhelming numbers. The insects also get their name from a foul smell they release when disturbed, making them unpleasant to have around.
