Common Pests in Waldorf, MD
More on pests in your area
Containing both urban areas and farmlands, dry plains and wetlands, Waldorf, MD, offers many habitats that attract common pests. Especially numerous around standing water, local mosquitoes are out in full force by late spring. As the species that spreads the Zika virus lives in this area, residents should be on alert. Spiders are also often found around local homes, scaring homeowners and spinning unsightly webs. Luckily, black widows are the only dangerous spiders native to Maryland, even though the infamous brown recluse is infrequently encountered. The pests' irregular, non-symmetrical webs may be spotted in rarely disturbed and open areas like under porches and in the corners of sheds.
Driven inside by cold fall and winter weather, multicolored Asian lady beetles and rats are typical Waldorf pests. Frequent visitors to local gardens, Asian lady beetles often overwinter in large numbers inside homes. These pests collect in living areas and stain surfaces with a foul-smelling, yellow-orange liquid when crushed. Norway rats and mice can easily enter homes through any hole two inches in diameter or larger. These unhygienic pests contaminate food and may transmit Hantavirus from their droppings.
