Other Texas Pests

Here are some of the more common household pest in Texas. One of which are called Aphids. If your not familiar with these critters consider yourself lucky. They’ve been known to ruin flowers and plants over a weekend. Also known as plant lice, greenflies, black or even whiteflies, these small sap-sucking insects are enemies of farmers and gardeners around the world. Many of their species in Texas are green or dark brown in color. They are capable of extremely rapid increase in numbers by asexual reproduction. Aphids are among the most destructive insect pests on cultivated plants in temperate regions. Austin’s mild winters and warm summers make it a great nesting ground for this species. Ask us to treat your plants and shrubs for Aphids the next time you get your quarterly service.
