If you asked 10 people in Southern Nevada what pests are common in the valley, you are likely to receive 10 different answers. Pests vary dramatically depending on your neighborhood and are affected by environmental factors, such as proximity to water sources like golf courses or the Las Vegas Wash.
Homes in new developments that are next to open desert—like Skye Canyon in the northwest or Mountain’s Edge in the southwest—are more prone to desert dwellers like scorpions. Homes in more established neighborhoods in Las Vegas are likely to see urban pests, such as roaches and crickets. But even next-door neighbors report different uninvited invaders.
