Spiders love forested areas and thus Oregon's forested terrains make it favorable for a variety of spider species to be present in the state. Most of the spiders are harmless. However, there are other dangerous spiders which the people of Oregon are always advised to be aware for.
One of these dreaded spiders is the Hobo Spider, which is also known as the aggressive house spider. These spiders are usually venomous and their bites can be dangerous to humans. In case one happens to get bitten by such spiders, one is advised to seek medical attention immediately.
There are other venomous spiders in this state and they include the Black Widow spider. They are commonly found outside people's homes, but females may sneak into people's home in search for a place to nest.
Scorpions are also common in Oregon. The Stripped-Back scorpion is the most common scorpion species which can be found in here.
Generally, scorpions are not poisonous, but they will not hesitate to sting when agitated. Their stings are very painful and they should be avoided. These pests love living outside homes, but they too can sneak into homes in search for a secluded place to nest or to escape extreme weather conditions outside.
Carpenter ants are the most prevalent type of ant found in this state. These pests are very destructive in homes because of their habits of burrowing holes into wooden materials so that they can build their nests. This usually brings destruction by weakening the wooden materials supporting the home.
Other burrowing pests which are common in this state are termites. Just like carpenter ants, these too are known for obtaining their food from wooden materials found in homes. These two pets are estimated to cause damages amounting over $5 billion dollars each year.
Ticks are also common in this Oregon. The four species of ticks in this state which are likely to attack humans include the American Dog tick, the Black-legged tick, the Rocky Mountain Wood tick and the Pacific Coast tick.
Ticks can transmit diseases to their host and need to be eradicated whenever they invade pets or homes. Residents should seek services from professional pest control specialists who know the best approaches to eradicating pests which sneak into people's homes.
