COMMON BUGS IN COLORADO
Most people assume that we don’t have very many bugs and pests in Colorado. While we may not be able to hold a bug light to other parts of the nation, we have our fair share of creepycrawlies and other pests that can disrupt our lives and businesses.
Traveling insects that love to hop a ride in your luggage, secondhand garments or furniture or on your jacket or purse while out it public. While tiny and hard to see, they can be a big nuisance and leave red bites or welts on a person.
BLACK WIDOW SPIDER
Female spiders are typically dark brown or shiny black with a red hourglass pattern on its bulbous abdomen. Their bite is toxic. A black widow web is particularly sticky. They prefer to nest near the ground.
While termites eat wood, carpenter ants bore and chew through wood to make nests. They are 1/4″ to 3/8″ long and can be black, red, a combination of both black and red, or brown.
BROWN RECLUSE SPIDER
The Brown Recluse has a dangerous bite. Normally light brown, they have six eyes (instead of eight). They are also known as fiddleback spiders due to the fiddle outline on their back. The Brown Recluse spider is not indigenous to our area but we do see them in houses where people have moved them in from another geographic location.
EASTERN SUBTERRANEAN TERMITE
Often confused with the carpenter ant. They are destructive little pests. Colonies are found underground and they create mud tubes along foundations to access your home or other structures for meal time.
One of the most common types of mice in the Pikes Peak region. They range in size from 3 to 4″ long and weigh only a couple of ounces. Despite their diminutive size, they can create a gargantuan problem
