Asian cockroaches appear identical to German cockroaches, but only Asian roaches can fly. These pests prefer to live outdoors but can easily enter a home through open windows, doors, and other entryways.
Bed bugs are parasitic insects commonly found in bedding, mattresses, and areas in which humans sleep. These insects feed on the blood of mammals and birds and are attracted to body heat produced by their host.
Black widow spiders feature a red hourglass marking on the underside of their abdomen. While these spiders help keep properties pest-free by consuming other pests, the black widow’s bite is among the most toxic spider bites in the U.S.
Among the smallest variety of invasive cockroach, brown-banded cockroaches commonly hang out in cabinets, pantries, and closets. These roaches consume items with high contents of starch, such as books and wallpaper.
Commonly referred to as a fiddleback or violin spider, the brown recluse spider features violin-shaped markings on top of its cephalothorax. The brown recluse has a venomous bite, though they only strike when disturbed.
Carpenters burrow and cause damage to wooden structures to build nests — unlike termites, carpenter ants do not feed on wood. This ant species are attracted to warm, moist climates and damp lumber or wood.
Domestic cockroaches, or indoor cockroaches, spend their lives within structures. Indoor cockroach varieties, which include the German cockroach and brown-banded cockroach, thrive within the presence of human activity.
Crickets are among the most common household pests, including mole crickets, camel crickets, ground crickets, house crickets, and field crickets, which infest properties in high numbers.
Invasive fire ants are aggressive insects notorious for painful burning stings that result in pustules and itching of the skin. These ants can consume fats, proteins, and carbohydrates, and they build large nests.
Fleas are wingless parasites that feed on the blood of mammals and birds — the most common variety is the cat flea. These pests can pose a severe health risk to both humans and pets and reproduce in large numbers.
German cockroaches are smaller than other types of cockroaches and can hide in small spaces and within infested items. These roaches pose a severe health risk to humans through the spread of pathogens, such as bacteria.
Bald-faced hornets, European hornets, and yellow jackets are the three most common types of hornets. This insect is part of a large colony, which, if disturbed by a human, may trigger a swarm attack.
Mites can do multiple types of damage — some mites feed on stored grain and cheese products while others bite humans. Dust mites are among the most common household allergens that trigger respiratory issues.
The mosquito is a type of fly with a thin body and wings and long legs. Female mosquitoes feed on the blood of warm-blooded animals, such as humans, which may result in severe skin irritation and medical concerns.
The palmetto bug, or American cockroach, is the largest type of cockroach to infest Florida properties. Palmetto bugs have red- or brown-colored wings and the ability to fly. They are often found in moist, warm areas.
Florida is home to three species of scorpions, two of which can be found in Florida — the Florida bank scorpion and the hentz striped scorpion. These arachnids are not considered deadly, but scorpion stings can be painful.
Silverfish are nocturnal insects which thrive in dark and humid spaces, such as garages, attics, sheds, kitchens, and bathrooms. These insects can cause considerable property damage due to their powerful appetites.
Smokybrown cockroaches are typically found on ground-floor levels of buildings and attract to leaking roofs, standing water, stacks of wood, exposed trash, and sewer openings. These cockroaches also spread bacteria.
Spiders are skilled predators that use their webs to trap and feed on other insects and pests. Most spiders are harmless, but discovering a spider or multiple spiders in your home can be an unsettling experience.
Subterranean termite swarmers, or alates, are winged reproductives that are black or yellow-brown in color and feature grey or brown-colored wings. Swarmers leave their parent colonies to mate and establish new colonies.
Subterranean termites, Formosan termites, and drywood termites are common pests, which feast on wood and cause severe property damage and decay during termite infestations.
Ticks are parasites that consume blood to satisfy each of their nutritional requirements. Florida’s deer ticks, American dog ticks, brown dog ticks, and lone star ticks often carry a number of different diseases, such as Lyme disease.
