Most Common Pests in Riverside, California

Updated: Apr 15

Riverside, CA, is known for its warm, sunny weather, which attracts many pests, including cockroaches, ants, mosquitoes, and rodents. Pest Assassin can help you get rid of these pests and keep your home pest-free.

Cockroaches infesting a home in Riverside, CA


We hate seeing them anywhere, especially in our own homes. Cockroaches can be found in dark, moist areas of your home, such as under sinks and in cabinets.

Cockroaches can carry bacteria and other harmful germs, so it's important to get rid of them as soon as possible.


Rodents, such as rats and mice can cause damage to your home and spread diseases. Rodents are most active during the colder months, but they can be found year-round in homes.


Ants are never fun to find in your home, especially when you have an infestation on your hands. They are most commonly found in kitchens in bathrooms, but you can find them anywhere in your home if you're not careful properly storing and disposing of food.

Ants are most commonly seen as a nuisance, but they can also be destructive. They can contaminate food, and damage furniture, and even the rest of your home if not taken care of.

Bed Bugs

Bed bugs are small, parasitic insects that feed on human blood. They are often found in mattresses, box springs, and furniture. Bed bugs can be a nuisance and can cause skin irritation.

When we say "Don't let the bedbugs bite", we mean it. Although rare, bedbug bites can lead to health complications and even death. That's why it's absolutely crucial to address the issue in a timely manner.

Mosquitoes are another pest that is active during the warmer months. They can bite and transmit diseases, such as malaria and West Nile virus. Mosquitoes are also very common in moist areas, such as near water.


Fleas are blood-sucking pests that can be found on pets and in homes. They can cause skin irritation and transmit diseases. Fleas are most active during the warmer months, but they can be found year-round.

Black widow spider


While most spiders are harmless, some spiders, such as black widows, can be dangerous. Spiders are most commonly found in undisturbed areas of homes, such as attics, basements, and closets.
