Common Pests in Beaumont, TX
More on pests in your area
While the state of Texas is known for its delicious barbecue joints, longhorn steers and 10-gallon hats, the Lone Star state is not only chock-full of cowboy culture, it’s also home to a wide range of pests. Texas’s warm climate is a big factor when it comes to the types of pests that thrive in the state and around the city of Beaumont. Pests like cockroaches generally seek out warm and humid harborage sites around homes, such as the bathroom and kitchen. In these areas of the home, moisture and food can be present, which is inviting to roaches. Cockroaches can pose a health risk, too. Their droppings and cast-off skins can lead to respiratory illness like allergies and asthma. Cockroaches reproduce often, which means that if one roach is spotted, there may be dozens more hiding out somewhere behind the walls. Residents are encouraged to contact local pest management experts if a roach infestation is present. Cockroach eggs are not affected by many types of over-the-counter insecticides, but professionals have the right equipment and knowledge to help treat infestations effectively.
Another pest that lives and thrives in Texas is the red imported fire ant. There are more than 210 species of ants in the state of Texas, according to the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department. While some of these species of ants generally nest outdoors, some can be a potential threat to humans. The red imported fire ant, for example, has a painful sting that can result in red pustules that burn and itch. While these ants aren’t deadly to the average person, young children and small pets may be at risk for serious medical complications. Residents are encouraged to be aware of ant colonies on their properties and to keep away. Treating the pests can be difficult because large colonies of these ants can have up to 250,000 workers and sometimes multiple queens in a foot-high mound. Beaumont residents who suspect an infestation should promptly call a local pest professional to help address and treat the infestation.
