Common Pests in White Plains, NY
More on pests in your area
Given its proximity to New York City and increasing population, White Plains, NY, is inviting to pests such as rats, mice, and pigeons. Rats and mice infest homes year-round but are more persistent during cold months. They hide in basements, attics, and wall voids where they urinate and defecate on personal belongings and chew on wires. The rodent pests also contaminate food and spread such diseases as leptospirosis, salmonellosis, hantavirus, and rat-bite fever. Pigeons roost on roofs, in chimneys, and in attics. Their droppings tarnish building facades and contribute to the spread of histoplasmosis.
During the summer, White Plains residents encounter a variety of stinging and biting insects like hornets, wasps, and mosquitoes. Hornets and wasps construct their nests on residential lawns and landscapes and often sting anyone who gets too close to their homes. The stings are painful and can be deadly to allergic individuals. Mosquitoes feed on people's blood and leave behind itchy welts when they do so. The pests also spread West Nile and Zika virus to humans when feeding.
