Common Pests in Johns Creek, GA
More on pests in your area
Biting and stinging pests in Johns Creek, GA, flourish in the warm and humid weather, often coming into conflict with residents during outdoor activities.
Hornets are flying, stinging insects with intimidating nests the size of basketballs. Even worse, these hives are often built near or on homes. Because hundreds of hornets may live together, DIY attempts to remove their nest often end in a stinging swarm.
Fire ants are the most common ant in the southeastern U.S., where the climate allows them to thrive nearly year-round. Similar in appearance to other ants, they are able to inject venom with their sting. The affected area swells and forms a pus-filled blister that can take weeks to heal.
With the number of mosquito-borne diseases in Georgia rising, Johns Creek residents are advised to take preventive measures each year before mosquito season. The main priority is to eliminate as much standing water as possible, as this is where the pests lay their eggs.
While they might not harm residents directly, several insects cause serious damage to local homes. Subterranean termites are one of the most significant wood-destroying pests in the country. Georgia residents alone spend more than $200 million per year related to termite damage. Homeowners in Johns Creek have a lot invested in their properties, and will want to protect that investment.
Although they don’t eat wood like termites, carpenter ants still cause damage by burrowing into timber to make their nests. Homeowners might notice a pile of sawdust outside the entry hole. Georgia is home to both the black carpenter ant and Florida carpenter ant.
