More on pests in your area
One of the major pest issues facing Laredo, TX, is flies, including various species of house and fruit flies. House flies are able to sneak into homes via broken window and door screens, as well as other small openings in home exteriors. These pests carry many pathogens and create unsanitary conditions in the buildings they infest. Fruit flies feed on rotting organic matter, particularly fruits. The pests lay their eggs inside produce, which consumers then unwittingly bring home with large numbers of fruit flies inside.
Rats and house mice are also common pests in Laredo. These rodents enter buildings through gaps in foundations, torn window screens, and cracks in siding. Once inside, they gather in kitchens, wall voids, attics, basements, or other places near a food source. Infestations of rats and mice are costly, as the pests chew on personal property, put homes at risk of catching fire by gnawing on electrical wiring, and contaminate stores of food with diseases such as salmonella.
