Common Pests in Milton, GA
More on pests in your area
Milton, GA, enjoys warm weather for much of the year, attracting a variety of insects. Yellow jackets do much of the stinging mistakenly attributed to bees. Their attraction to just about any food item, especially picnic items puts them in constant conflict with humans. Hot Milton summers provide a perfect environment for these pests to thrive.
The city's summer rains and humidity are ideal for mosquito breeding. Homeowners should eliminate all standing water, even in small amounts, if they hope to manage populations of these potentially disease-carrying insects. The West Nile and Zika viruses have both been documented in Georgia.
While active in all seasons, fleas are most likely to cause problems in summer. The biting pests hitch a ride indoors on pets' fur and could start feeding on other family members, too. Fleas then make themselves at home by laying eggs in carpeting, upholstered furniture, and especially in pet bedding.
Bed bugs can be introduced into a home after traveling. Their flat bodies allow them to hide virtually anywhere, but they will come out from their hiding spots to feed. Unlike fleas, which primarily bite the ankles, bed bugs will bite any exposed skin.
Ticks in Georgia can transmit serious illnesses like tularemia, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, and Lyme disease. Ticks can be picked up when spending time outdoors or through pets transferring them indoors.
Small, silver, and tapered like a carrot, silverfish feed on many starch based products like book glue, as well as clothing, and plant-based home decor. Keeping boxes away from walls and stored off of the floor can help eliminate hiding places.
