Professional Occasional Invader Pest Control Tucson AZ
Occasional invader is pest control terminology utilized to classify insect species that occasionally invade residential and commercial settings. Why occasional invaders infiltrate buildings can be related to food, overwintering, and accidental. When food becomes scarce in the natural habitat, occasional invaders are initiate searches elsewhere, which oftentimes is a Tuscon home or business. Overwintering is a term utilized in reference to dormant state insects enter when winter sets in. Accidental insect infiltration could be related to just about any occasion. The insect could be foraging for food when it accidentally invades a home.
Insect species that meet the criteria to be classified as an occasional invader include the following:
- Cluster fly
- Spider (venomous and non-venomous species)
- Boxelder “boxelder” bug
Why Is My Tucson Property Under An Occasional Invader Attack?
As previously mentioned, an occasional home invasion by the earwig, silverfish, or pillbug could be accidental or before the overwintering process is set to begin. If you have detected one or more of these insect species in your home, it can be contributed to a weak pest barrier. Components of a building structure are utilized to keep the occupants safe, warm/cool, and cozy. When building components, such as siding, window frames, garage door seals, and entrance door thresholds, become weak from normal wear and tear, occasional invaders will take advantage. Occasional invader infiltration of residential settings may be planned or accidental.
Do Occasional Invader Pests Spread Disease?
Most occasional invader species do not spread disease. The cluster fly and venomous spiders pose the biggest danger for humans. While venomous spiders are dangerous, they are not known to bite unless they are threatened. Bites by venomous spiders cause a mild to severe allergic reaction. In some cases, the victim may end up needing antibiotic treatment for a skin infection. And, if not properly treated, the infected skin will be necrotic.
