Common Summer Pests in Tampa

American cockroaches (“Palmetto bugs”) thrive in Florida’s humid summers, often finding food outside but sometimes entering homes and exploring pantries.

Common Fall Pests in Tampa

Rodents can be an especially problematic fall pest if they decide to find indoor shelter for the winter. Cockroaches, which are active year round, might also come indoors more often in chilly weather. Meanwhile, spiders prefer to build webs inside, where there’s shelter—this means attics, basements and other low-traffic areas.

Common Winter Pests in Tampa

Silverfish are most commonly spotted in winter, when they live in bathrooms, attics and other warm, humid places. Tick infestations tend to increase in the winter, as people might bring some plants indoors and accidentally bring ticks in with them. It’s also important to inspect for signs of mice that could damage wiring if they overwinter in the walls of your home.
