Most Common Summer Pests in Oregon

The last thing you want to find in your summer garden in Southern Oregon is destroyed flowers and vegetables, and you definitely don’t want pests in your home during the hot weather. There are many types of insects and pests native to the Pacific Northwest that become more active in the summertime. At A-One Exterminators, we want to help our Southern Oregon clients know which pests pose the biggest threats and require prompt extermination.

Earwigs

These little bugs become more active in warm weather, and they can wreak havoc on your garden if left unchecked. Although they are not directly harmful to humans, they could completely ruin the garden you worked on all spring and summer in a matter of days. One natural way to get rid of them is by introducing more of their natural predators to your property, such as birds and toads. Still, you should contact a professional exterminator if you have a significant earwig infestation.

Black Vine Weevils

These are also creatures you want to keep out of your garden at all costs. Weevils not only eat through tender plant leaves very quickly, but also lay eggs in topsoil, and their larvae will cause extensive root damage to your growing plants very quickly. The best way to address a Black Vine Weevil problem is to find the adult weevils and kill them before they have a chance to lay their eggs.

Stinging Pests

Summertime means flying, stinging insects like wasps and hornets are more active. If you have a nest of these on your property, your friends and family face a risk of suffering painful stings and bites. You should not attempt to remove wasp or hornet nests on your own and refer to a professional exterminator service as soon as possible.

These are just some of the most common pests Southern Oregon homeowners are likely to encounter this summer. If you have a problem with insects, rodents, or other unwanted critters on your property, contact A-One Exterminators today to see how our team can help.
