Dunwoody Pest Pressure
The hot summer months in Dunwoody, GA, can bring painful encounters with pests. The following stinging species can be harmful if found in the home or backyard:
These pests create round nests made from wood fibers aboveground during the summer. Unlike a honey bee, which stings once and dies, a hornet has a smooth stinger that can inject painful venom multiple times.
This pest has noticeable yellow markings on its head and abdomen. Like the hornet, a yellow jacket can sting repeatedly. They are often found around food and garbage, particularly sugary soda cans.
One of the most common and troublesome insects in the southeastern U.S., fire ants often build large mounds in high-traffic areas like backyards, parks, and playgrounds. This species has particularly painful venom, and multiple stings are common.
In addition to stinging insects, biting pests are found in Dunwoody. Two spiders found in this area are considered medically important to humans:
Black Widow Spiders
These arachnids have shiny, black bodies with a distinctive red hourglass spot and live throughout the South. A black widow spider bite can cause severe muscle aches, nausea, and difficulty breathing, which can be fatal for small children or the elderly.
Brown Recluse Spiders
Found across north and western Georgia, this arachnid is light brown with a darker brown, violin-shaped mark near the head. These spiders live in dark, undisturbed areas and will hide in cardboard boxes and even stacks of clothes or bedding. A severe brown recluse bite can lead to tissue damage and permanent scarring.
