Common Warm-Weather Pests in Philadelphia

The summer months are great for gathering outdoors with friends and family in the City of Brotherly Love. Unfortunately, irritating insect pests often join the party or make their way into the house as well. Warm weather pests in Philadelphia, PA, include:

Wasps

Wasps feed on food scraps and drink from spills near outdoor eating areas. These insects can become a major pest issue when they build nests in roof eaves or within trees near the home. Wasp stings cause pain and swelling. For those with allergies, symptoms may be more severe.

Flies

A house fly spends its short life feeding on sewage, garbage, and carrion. As a result, trash, garbage containers, pet feces left lying around and poorly maintained compost piles attract them. The pests spoil food and contaminate surfaces with bacteria wherever they land. Some species in Pennsylvania, like black flies, bite and leave behind itchy welts as well.

Mosquitoes

Mosquitoes are blood-sucking pests that annoy people with their bites. They buzz around outdoor areas where people gather and fly into homes through open windows or doors. Over 300 mosquito pools in Philadelphia have tested positive for West Nile virus.

Ants

There are many ant species that will come indoors in search of food and a protective habitat. Some of the common ants that infest homes are odorous house ants, pharaoh ants, pavement ants and carpenter ants. Carpenter ants are not only a nuisance, but also infest and damage wood in homes.

Common Wintertime Pests in Philadelphia

Insects and rodents often take shelter indoors to survive during cold Pennsylvania weather. In Philadelphia, three common winter pests are:

Mice

Mice can squeeze indoors through holes the size of a dime in search of food and warmth. They stain walls and floorboards with greasy rub marks and often leave behind droppings and a musty odor. A mouse will seek out crumbs and also chew through packaging to eat and contaminate stored food.

Termites

Termites generally slow down their activities in winter, but continue to remain active in locations they’ve previously infested inside a home. Termite infestations weaken home structures, and repairing the damage can get expensive. Subterranean termites usually form swarms of winged reproductive termites during the late winter and spring months

Bed Bugs

Though most active during warm months in Philadelphia, bed bugs are a year-round pest in heated homes. Since they have a knack for hiding in cracks and crevices, these insects are hard to detect. The first sign of infestation is often noticing bites on the skin. While bed bug bites don’t spread disease, they can create itchy bumps that can take several days to heal.
