Waco Pest Pressure
Waco, TX, has hot summers and mild winters, making it an ideal place for insects to thrive. Pests that sting to defend their nests are a particular nuisance to people doing home repairs or yard work. Common stinging insects in Waco are:
While these insects are important pollinators, they can also present health risks to residents. Usually found in plants around Waco homes or occasionally inside wall voids, an adult honey bee female (males don’t have stingers) will sting when threatened. Being stung by honey bees can be dangerous for those with allergies.
Unlike other bee species, a carpenter bee bores into wood surfaces and constructs a nest from the resulting debris. This behavior damages fences and houses across Texas. Carpenter bees are territorial, and a sting from a female, while rare, is slightly painful.
Homeowners in Waco also encounter biting pests that find their way indoors. These bothersome insects include:
In Texas, these pests usually enter homes on pets or other wildlife intruders. A flea consumes blood from animals and people to produce eggs. Problems with these insects are often difficult to address without professional control, and flea bites can spread disease.
Bed bugs hide in lots of places within the home. A few of the more common places are mattress seams, comforters, bed frames, furniture, and almost any crack or crevice where bed bugs can hide.
The insects turn dark red after taking a blood meal. Bed bug bites are not known to transmit diseases, but their bites may cause skin rashes, itchiness, anxiety, and sleeplessness.
