What's Bugging Southeast Texas
This is a list of current seasonal or problem pests common to Southeast Texas, Southwest Louisiana and the Gulf Coast region. Living in the south certainly affords us with typically mild winters which allows most species of pests to survive thus enabling them to thrive as soon as the spring hits and then on into the brutal HOT summer months.
Due to the vast amount of moisture, humidity and intermittent rains, insects are literally able to flourish in population size. The presence of Mosquitoes seem to never end, Termite swarms are triggered by the arrival of spring, Rasberry Crazy Ants are a horrible nuisance to home and business owners, Fire Ants really show their face with the construction of mounds due to the moist soil from rains and the dreaded Lawn Chinch bugs destroying lawns with unsightly killing of grass areas in yards. These are just a few we have to contend with amongst all the many other pest species that have plagued us for years.
