Rodent and Insect Pests
Due to the city’s thriving population, pest encounters are common all year in Pearland, TX. Some creatures invade homes, while others are only occasional nuisances. Troublesome rodents and insects in Texas include:
While many rodents shelter in wooded areas, the house mouse thrives around people. These animals sneak inside Pearland homes garages or outbuildings to find a meal and keep warm. Once indoors, house mice chew through wires and contaminate stored foods as well as kitchen surfaces.
A flea problem typically begins when a pet or wildlife pest brings these insects into the house or crawl space. Fleas attach themselves to animals and feed on them in order to reproduce. Extensive cleaning and vacuuming can reduce the number of fleas and their eggs. However, complete removal is difficult without help from a pest management professional.
Though when outdoors they prefer decaying leaves and woodpiles, cockroaches often invade Texas homes. They are small enough to squeeze through tiny foundation cracks and gaps around doors. Regular home upkeep, reducing clutter and cleaning to remove sources of food are the best ways to help prevent and avoid cockroach infestations.
Some pests only occasionally enter a home or building. Two species that Pearland residents may encounter are:
These arthropods live under rocks and logs across Texas. Sometimes, they make their way inside Pearland homes. A centipede hides during the day and spends its evenings preying on spiders and insects. High populations of centipedes in a house usually indicate a more critical pest infestation.
Like the centipede, millipedes have multiple pairs of legs and often frighten Pearland residents. These pests usually show up indoors after a heavy rain. Most millipede species like dark, humid places. Texas homeowners may find them in firewood piles and basements.
