Common Pests in Dubuque, IA
More on pests in your area
The climate of Dubuque, IA, attracts many insect pests in part because the city is located on the Mississippi River. For example, mosquitoes frequent the area because of the available standing water. A nuisance during the warm summer months, these flying insects are also capable of transmitting diseases such as West Nile virus. The wolf spider is also common in Iowa. Their large size and intimidating appearance can be startling, though the pests rarely attack humans. Like most spiders, they have a very mild venom that may cause some discomfort and may require medical attention if the person bitten is highly sensitive to the venom.
Known as a gateway city, Dubuque hosts many travelers and, consequently, plenty of bed bugs. These hitch-hiking insects latch onto luggage, furniture, and even clothing, which allows them to easily get into houses. Hiding around bedrooms in mattress seams, box springs, and headboards, the pests come out to feed at night when residents are sleeping. Though they do not carry or transmit diseases, bed bugs can cause grief and anxiety.
