Common Pests in Richardson, TX
More on pests in your area
Warm summers and mild winters in Richardson, TX, allow a wide variety of pests to thrive. Found in yards across the city, a number of flying insects annoy or endanger Texas homeowners, including:
Unlike honey bees, yellow jackets will sting multiple times to protect their colonies against any threat. Typical yellow jacket nesting sites include underground nests in lawns, gardens, and above ground nests in numerous locations around the home. Since the pests often establish their colonies near buildings, Richardson residents have frequent conflicts with yellow jackets.
Capable of breeding in nearly any body of water, mosquitoes thrive across Texas. A key risk of mosquito bites is the transmission of diseases like West Nile virus. While many people never realize they are infected, some who contract the virus have severe reactions.
Not all dangerous Texas pests fly through the air. Some biting or stinging creatures in Richardson crawl along the ground. A few of the most common include:
Fire ants bite to get a grip on its target before delivering a painful sting. The pests’ venom causes a burning sensation and a blister forms on the skin after being stung. Richardson residents who are allergic to fire ants may experience severe reactions that require immediate medical care.
Brown Recluse Spiders
Texas homeowners may stumble upon a brown recluse spider in their basement or garage.

Brown recluse spiders bite if they feel trapped or in danger, and their venom can cause tissue and nerve damage.
