Look Out For Florida’s Top 10 Creepy Crawlers

October 31, 2015

The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services reminds residents and visitors to be on the lookout for these 10 creepy, crawly, invasive and destructive pests found in Florida. In addition to threatening Florida’s $123 billion agriculture industry and the more than 2 million jobs it supports, pests pose a serious risk to commerce, the environment, public health and the food supply.

On average, a new invasive pest is introduced in Florida every month, and that trend will only increase with the continued rise of global commerce and travel. Know the signs of emerging and existing pests and diseases to help protect Florida.

    YES! This information is greatly appreciated. Makes one more aware of the different kinds of insects possible in our area. I know love bugs are bad – always making one have to clean up their vehicle. Will really appreciate seeing the end of them.
