Humid summer weather draws out the bugs in your home.  A single household can contain up to over 99 different species of insect pests, according to study performed by the Orlando Orange County University of Florida UF/IFAS Extention.  Orlando Florida UF/Extention Pests/Bugs.    

Many of these unwanted bugs and pests are not only unwelcome guests, they’re also pests you may have never heard of. Please see Orlando Pest Control’s Occasional Invader Page on our Orlando Pest Control and Orange County Florida Pest Management Page.

Most homeowners searching for a quality Pest Control firm in Orlando have heard of Spiders, ants and fire ants, mosquitoes, Orlando area mice and rats that need control, and stinging insects like bees, wasps, yellow jackets, and hornets, however many have never heard of some of the occasional invaders that we will discuss.

Number one on our list of pests you and your family could be living with is the silverfish. This silverish grey lurker lives in dark moist areas of your home such as as damp basements and in bathrooms. Some actually live and survive Florida Summers in dry attics and will cause damage to books, stored documents, and even cloth items. Silverfish feed on dead insects, cellulose materials shampoo, silk, and linen according to Rodney Allman of Orlando Pest Control in Orlando and Kissimmee, Florida. Silverfish love moist clothes, books, newspapers, and old documents that may be important.



The second pest is the Kissing Bug. Regardless of the insinuation of romance in the name, locking your lips with the mouth parts of a Kissing Bug could be the kiss of death. According to the National Pest Management Association, Kissing Bugs may cause the fatal Chagas disease from the parasite they carry – Trypanosoma cruzi. For more information on Kissing Bugs and the ones we ironically found in, Kissimmee Florida of all places, see our website at Orlando Pest Control.
