Ants are Americans' No. 1 pest concern for 2018, according to a survey from Arrow Exterminators conducted by Radius Global Market Research November 2017 among 2,011 U.S. adults, and spiders, mosquitoes and roaches are also among the most unwanted.
Arrow is stepping in to educate Americans about how they can deter these uninvited visitors in 2018. More than three quarters (78 percent) have a pest concern heading into the new year, but preparing for issues – and knowing who to call if they become unmanageable – can ease concerns.
"Adults with children are more likely to have insect concerns than non-parents (86 percent versus 73 percent), so if keeping bugs away from kids is a priority for you, prevention is the best course of action," says Charlie Jones, Arrow pest expert.
Other interesting findings from the report include the fact that ants ranked #1 in the East (33%) and West (36%), while spiders ranked #1 in the Midwest (36%) and cockroaches took he top ranking in the South (49%).
The full list of top pest concerns for 2018 is as follows:
- No household pest concerns
- Occasional invaders (stink bugs, boxelder, centipedes, silverfish, earwigs)
- Stinging insects (bees, wasps)

Ehrlich Pest Control has donated $5,000 to the Maryland Food Bank to support their ongoing initiatives. This donation came as a result of the pop-up “Pestaurant” event that occurred in late September at the Pratt and Light Plaza in Baltimore. At the event, passerby were invited to sample bug-infused dishes (i.e. June Beetles Encrusted Croquettes, Fried Cricket Crostini, Maryland Mealworm Crab Cakes, and Grasshopper Bark). For every person who tasted one of the bug infused dishes or entered the cricket eating contest, Ehrlich made a donation to the Maryland Food, resulting in this check presentation.
Each dollar the Maryland Food Bank received equals three meals for food insecure Marylanders — thus the donation is equivalent to 15,000 meals to help the 1 in 9 Maryland residents who are food insecure.
