Phoenix Arizona is a great place to live. Other than two months of inconvenience our weather is ideal for enjoying the outdoors year-round. In fact, more than 16 million people visit the Valley of the Sun yearly to enjoy our comfortable temperatures.
While the weather is without a doubt the #1 reason for living and/or visiting it is also creates conditions conducive to desert pests. Desert insects thrive in our weather.
Pests need moisture, a steady food source, and safe shelter. Large populations of desert pests mean more competition for prime nesting, feeding, and moisture sites. As populations and competition increase these pests are driven from traditional desert areas to residential and commercial structures. Most homes provide shelter from the sun, a source of moisture, and a steady food supply. When these pests establish nesting in and around structures they are followed by “predator pests” such as scorpions and spiders.
