Being in the southern United States with a warm climate, Georgia is susceptible to a wide range of household pests. Fortunately, most of these insects and rodents are common throughout the region and well known amongst homeowners. However, while many residents may be aware of the pests that frequent their homes, they may not know that much about them. Understanding what pests to expect, how they behave and how they enter your home is the first step toward preventing any infestations.
One of the common pests in Georgia is the German cockroach. These unsightly creatures are often found indoors and are known for digesting wood, causing many of the same problems as termites. Apart from the structural damage roaches can cause, they also carry many diseases, which they can leave behind in areas of your home. It is also common for cockroaches to excrete an unpleasant odor that can leave confined areas of your home such as cabinets smelling bad. Cockroaches can be tricky to get rid of because they can feed off virtually anything, even each other.
Ants are another major problem in Georgia. There are a variety of species of ants in Georgia, with some of the most common ones being Carpenter, Acrobat, Argentine, and Fire Ants. Carpenter ants and acrobat ants both build their homes in moist, rotting wood. Infestations of these pests are very common outside, but if the opportunity exists, they will also make their home in rotting wood inside your home.
Another commonly found ant in Georgia is the Argentine ant. Fortunately, these species don't bite or sting, but they do enjoy the indoors quite a bit. These ants typically move indoors when the weather is cooler, looking for a warmer environment. Their small size allows them to fit through very tiny cracks or openings to get into your home. Another unique aspect of the Argentine ant is that they don't compete with other Argentine ant colonies and will happily coexist, which can result in an even greater presence of them in your home.
There are three different species of fire ants in Georgia, but the most common is the red imported fire ant. This species came to the United States from South America and has become a very well known presence in the southeast. While these ants have come to serve a purpose in our ecosystem, they deliver painful, stinging bites that can even be fatal. Red imported fire ants create mounds, and will attack if their mounds are disturbed. Because of the dangers associated with these ants, it is important to call a pest control expert to help treat any fire ant problems you discover around your home.
Another pest Georgia homeowners should pay very close attention to is the Eastern subterranean termite. These termites feed on wood cellulose, which is in the interior part of a wooden structure. This is especially problematic because the damage is inside the wood and cannot be easily seen. Often, by the time termites are discovered they have already done thousands of dollars in damage. Wooden foundation under your house, floorboards, and trim are all commonly attacked by these termites. Identifying termites can also be difficult because they look very similar to some ant species.
Other pests such as spiders, rodents, moths and bed bugs can be found in Georgia homes. No matter what type of pest problem you are facing, pest control experts can help you safely identify, treat and eliminate any pest problems in your home.
