Philadelphia Pest Pressure

Stinging Pests

Indoor and outdoor pests in Philadelphia, PA, enjoy the city's humid climate. Summers are usually muggy, while winters are relatively cold. Homeowners may encounter several stinging insects in the summer and fall, including:

Yellow Jackets

Yellow jackets often nest in areas close to Philadelphia houses, sometimes in wall voids or on lawns underneath the ground, and sometimes in aerial nests found in protected areas. They aggressively defend their nests and attack if threatened. Yellow jacket stings are serious for those who have allergies and these insects often attack intruders in large numbers.

European Hornets

Like the yellow jacket, a hornet protects its home with a painful sting. These insects also damage trees when collecting material for their nests. Unlike other wasp species in Pennsylvania, European hornet workers are unique because they forage at night.

Blood-Feeding Pests

As a popular tourist spot, insects that take blood meals thrive in Philadelphia. With plenty of people living in and visiting the city, it is easy for the following pests to feed and reproduce:

Bed Bugs Bed bugs hide in the cracks of furniture, beds, and fabric folds. The pests come out at night to feed on people as they sleep. Attacks usually result in itchy welts, but some people have severe allergic reactions. Bed bug infestations are difficult to control since the pests may lie dormant for months without a blood meal if no suitable hosts are around for them to feed on.

Northern House Mosquitoes

Warm, rainy months in Pennsylvania help mosquitoes develop into adults. Fifteen days and a small pool of stagnant water is all it takes for Northern house mosquito larvae to mature. In addition to annoying Philadelphia residents, these pests can spread West Nile virus to people and canine heartworm to pets.
