Glen Burnie Pest Pressure
Thousands of people and millions of insect pests call Glen Burnie, MD, home. Originally imported with shipments of tires from Asia, Asian tiger mosquitoes are now one of the main species in many areas of Maryland. These mosquitoes are known carriers of the West Nile and Zika viruses. Ants are another common household pest, as they can squeeze inside through small openings in foundations. Attracted to sugar and protein, ants infest kitchens and contaminate food.
Residents in and around Glen Burnie also need to be aware of kissing bugs. Named for their habit of biting people on the face as they sleep, these pests can be carriers of the parasite that causes Chagas disease. The illness, in its most severe cases, can trigger heart problems, cardiac arrest, and even death, but not all people who contract this disease show such symptoms. The likelihood of getting Chagas disease in Maryland is extremely low; however, Maryland is one of several Mid-Atlantic states where kissing bugs have been identified.
