In Midland, Texas, residents see a variety of different pests. Ants are one of the most common pests, particularly fire ants, acrobat ants, harvester ants, and carpenter ants. Out of all these, fire ants and carpenter ants are the most unpleasant. Fire ants are commonly found in mounds in the grass or in the sidewalk. Their bites produce an unpleasant burning sensation and red bump, so it’s best to avoid them. Carpenter ants, on the other hand, can cause serious property damage. These pesky creatures tunnel their way through wood using their large mandibles, and they can go undetected in walls for up to eight years. It’s important to take carpenter ant infestations seriously.
In addition to ants, black widow spiders are also extremely common in Midland. Black widows hide in dark, unbothered places such as eaves, wood piles, unused shoes, children’s toys, and patio furniture. These spiders can be identified by the trademark red markings on their abdomens. Black widows are poisonous, so it’s important to seek medical care if bitten. However, it’s best to avoid them in the first place. If you see black widows or ants on your property, call Fox Pest Control immediately for professional and prompt service.
