In it, you’ll find information about the most common pests that invade the homes and businesses in our area, as well as what to do if you find them in your building.
Ants are well known as annoying household invaders, but they play an intricate part in the ecosystem when living out in nature. They act as a source of food for many other animals, rid the ground of dead insects and vegetation, aerate the soil, and move seeds to new locations.
Bed bugs are nocturnal insects that live primarily indoors, feeding on their sleeping hosts' blood. They require the blood of people, animals, or birds to survive, and blood is their sole source of nutrition. The bed bug is a pest that has always been associated with people because our blood is their preferred food source.
Cockroaches are unsightly, unpleasant pests that have come to view our Idaho homes and businesses as their personal feeding and breeding grounds. Adaptable creatures, many cockroaches have learned to survive by learning how to live with people.
Adult fruit flies are those tiny flying pests that take over our kitchens in the late summer and fall. As they fly around our kitchens, they look like generic tiny gray flies, but if you take a closer look, you can see they have unique physical characteristics that separate them from other flies.
Biting pesky flies that take over our summers, mosquitoes are pests that we all encounter at some point or another when trying to enjoy ourselves outside. These insects have small bodies, long thin legs, and feather-like antennae. Like other flies, they only have one pair of wings.
Closely related to butterflies, moths are flying insects that have scale-covered wings and thread-like, feathery antennae. Moths are mainly identified by their stout body and dull color patterns, though some moths can be bright in color.
Occasional invaders are those pests that live mostly outside, but when their living conditions become unsuitable, usually due to bad weather, they move inside and become unwelcome houseguests.
The best way to tell the difference between a rodent and another type of animal is by their front incisors. Every rodent has continuously growing front incisors that they sharpen and prevent from overgrowing by constantly chewing on objects they come across.
Spiders are arachnids that are well-known predators and help to limit the number of insects in the environment. Being an arachnid means that they have two body parts, eight legs, and lack wings and antennae.
Insects with stingers at the end of their abdomens used for paralyzing prey or defending themselves are called stinging insects. We see these insects buzzing around our yards and gardens throughout the spring and summer months, searching for food.
