THE TOP FIVE PESTS PEOPLE IN LAS VEGAS LOVE TO HATE

 

The Las Vegas Valley has several types of bugs and pests that we love to hate. From Henderson to Summerlin there are five in particular that we find the biggest problem with. The following are the top winners:

 

  • BED BUGS

The thought of bed bugs feeding on humans while they are sound asleep at night is enough to make anyone quiver with fear. Over the last decade, bed bug populations have continued to rise, and today, one out of five Americans has experienced a bed bug infestation or knows someone who has encountered these despised pests. Unfortunately, bed bugs are extremely elusive creatures, and they can hide just about anywhere. This makes treating an infestation with do-it-yourself measures nearly impossible. It is very important to have a licensed pest professional handle this problem for you.

 

  • COCKROACHES

From their creepy appearance to the odd survival tactics they exhibit, cockroaches are certainly abhorred by homeowners. Not only do these pests possess an ick-factor, but they can also pose health risks to humans if they find a way inside our abodes. Many types of cockroaches have been reported to spread bacteria and pathogens and can cause allergies and asthma especially in children.

 

  • HOUSE FLIES

House flies are undoubtedly one of the most annoying pests. During the warmer months, they often find ways into the home through open windows and doors, and buzz around unwelcomed. If that’s not bad enough, house flies are also known to contaminate food products and surfaces by spreading more than 100 different kinds of disease-causing organisms.

 

  • LICE

Head lice suck blood from the scalp of humans, but they are not really considered a health threat. Still lice are often a source of unease amongfamilies. There are special combs, shampoos and conditioners designed specifically to treat lice.

 

  • MOSIQUITOES

Unfortunately, these blood-sucking pests can leave more than red, itchy welts. Mosquito bites may also lead to more serious and potentially fatal diseases, including West Nile virus, Chikungunya, malaria and Dengue fever. The key to mosquito prevention is wearing bug spray. If you are spending time outdoors, make sure to apply an insect repellant containing DEET, picaridin, oil of lemon-eucalyptus or IR3535. It is also wise to wear long sleeves, long pants and closed toe shoes to protect your skin from mosquitoes and other stinging or biting insects.
