When it comes to bugs, we’re seriously outnumbered. We always have been—and we always will be. While there are around 7.7 billion humans on planet Earth, there is an estimated 10 quintillion (that’s 10,000,000,000,000,000,000) bugs living amongst us.
For the most part, many of these bugs don’t bother us. But when they begin infringing upon the places where we live and hang out, then we start to think of them as “pests”—and pests are a problem.
Of the numerous different insect species out in the world, there are certain ones that are more problematic here on our properties in Pennsylvania.
That’s why we’ve rounded up 26 of the most common household and outdoor pests in PA. We want you to be able to identify, prevent, and control pests that could be bugging you.
