In Old West movies, you might have seen the 10 most wanted villains, but these days we thought it would be better to spread the word about these most unwanted neighbors. The winners are:

Bees
Wasps
Fire Ants
Scorpions
Spiders
Snakes
Wild Hogs


WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT THE 7 WORST PESTS IN TEXAS!

Bees – they are everywhere! For the most part that doesn’t make for much of a problem. In fact, they are beneficial to the environment, unless we’re talking Africanized Bees. The sting of an Africanized Bee is dangerous to humans and animals alike, and they are threatening to cripple the honeybee population.


Wasps – another buzzing buddy we could do without. With several species of these unpleasantly aggressive critters, whose stings pack quite a wallop, they are one bug you’d do well to avoid.


Fire Ants – we have a lot of stinging insects in this area, but Fire Ants are in a league of their own. If they feel like you are a threat to their nest or food source, they will bite and sting you repeatedly. These stings cause localize burning and itching and, in the case of allergic reactions, can result in hospitalization.


Scorpions – We can boast an impressive varity of scorpions in our state, 18 different species which average about 2 inches in size. If you thought you had the willies before, you might want to thing again. Their stings, while rarely life-threatening, can be extremely painful.


Spiders – There are three types of spiders you want to keep an eye out for in these parts. Tarantulas, who aren’t particularly poisonous, but their bites are very unpleasant. Our scarier eight-legged freaks are the brown recluse and black widow, both of them are extremely poisonous, and if bit, you should seek immediate medical attention.


Snakes – Now we come to the legless wonders. We have four types of venomous snakes locally. They are: rattlesnakes, copperheads, water moccasins, and coral snakes.


Wild Hogs – The only warm blooded beast to make our list. The feral population of wild hogs in our state can present quite a problem. While, generally, they avoid humans, if you are unlucky enough to come across one, you should know they are known for being very aggressive. Their tusks can cause serious and sometimes fatal damage to a person.


WHEN DEALING WITH DANGEROUS WILD ANIMALS, PROFESSIONALS LIKE EPEST SOLUTIONS IS THE TRUSTED WAY TO GO.
