Phoenix is one of the most populated cities in the state of Arizona. It is part of the Sonoran Desert. The hot climate and its close proximity to the desert are clues as to why the area is filled with camel spiders, tarantula hawk wasps and the venomous bark scorpions. The desert brings with it a plethora of lizards, snakes, coyotes and owls. Its humidity increases during the summer months and tends to be a feeding ground for termites. Not to scare you, but the area also faces a threat from pests such as fleas, crickets, centipede, cockroaches, bed bugs, brown dog ticks, spiders, ants and rodents. The western black widow and flying desert grasshoppers are both common in the area.
