The transportation hub of the southeastern United States is Atlanta, GA. It all began in 1837 when two railroad lines intersected. Since then the city has flourished, growing to a population of five million people. Atlanta is also visited by thousands of travelers every year to see the Braves, Six Flags, Grant Park, and Legoland. There are some other unwanted guests that will come to Atlanta and visit, but these guests won’t leave. These unwanted guests are pests.
What pests live in Atlanta?
There are many pests that will live in Atlanta. Some of the more common pests are: crickets, cockroaches, spiders, ants, and earwigs. These pests can live in Atlanta year-round due to the weather. Atlanta does get cold, but will not stay under a deep freeze for months at a time. The weather will allow the pest to reproduce and really infest a home.
Every pest has their own habitats and needs, and will be found in different areas. Crickets and cockroaches can be found in dark moist areas, both inside and outside of the home. Spiders will live in dry areas where they can place their webs in the high traffic areas of other pest insects. Earwigs eat organic matter that is decomposing, so they can be found in piles of leafs, and organic debris. Ants will live in areas where they can find food and take it back to the colony.
Can these pests infest a home?
Once the pests have found an area around a home they like, they will first take over on the outside then work their way to the inside. The pests will need to find new food sources in these new living areas in order to survive. The pest will then move to the inside of the walls of an adjacent home. In the wall, the pest can survive and be protected from the outside elements; and really infest.
