Common Pests in Dubai


Cockroaches are one of the most common pests found in Dubai. Known as one of the most hardened creatures in the world, these pests are able to survive in the most extreme environments. They commonly live inside sewers and crawl up into every part of your household, most specially the kitchen, bathroom and door openings. These insects are generally harmless but due to the habitat they travel from, they are known to carry various forms of infections and bacteria.


Mosquitos are flying insects that feed on blood. These insects generally live in areas with a lot of plants. Mosquitoes are more common near Dubai Creek and wadis, the desert streams (oases) that fill after the rains, and around date groves. They’re most likely to find you in the evening if you’re camping in the desert. These type of mosquitos do not pose any health concerns but the bites they give will still cause you a lot of discomfort.


Rodents are warm-blooded mammals that, like humans, can be found throughout the world. They have oversized front teeth for gnawing and check teeth, which are adapted for chewing. Rodents chew on a variety of items available to them and cause great damage in and around homes. rodents may carry diseases and taint food with waste, fur, and saliva. In fact, mice can contaminate about 10 times the amount of food they eat. The pests are also hosts for fleas, which can spread plague and diseases like lymphocytic choriomeningitis virus. This illness mostly affects those with weakened immune systems and may result in headaches, fever, and meningitis. It can also cause complications during pregnancy.


Adult ants species come in a variety of shapes and sizes but each will be one of three different colony castes; queens, workers or males. Queens are fertile females that lay all the eggs in a colony. Workers are wingless females that gather food, feed larvae, maintain the nest, defend the colony, and do not reproduce. Male ants are winged and their only job is to mate with the queens during the swarming process. Poor sanitation is the primary cause of ant infestations. Leaving dirty dishes in the sink, food residue on countertops, crumbs on the floor and trash not frequently emptied provide food sources for meal-seeking ants. What starts with a few foragers entering a home can become a major problem if ants establish colonies in walls, lawns, or under home foundations.


There are more than 16,000 species of flies in North America. But they all belong to the order Diptera, meaning two wings. Because they only have two wings, flies land often and therefore can deposit thousands of bacteria each time they land. There are many different ways homeowners may get a fly in their living space. The insects can enter houses on food products (fruit flies) or drift in through open windows and doors. They may also be attracted to and develop in decaying organic matter in drains. They can also infest dead animals in walls, attics, or other hidden places inside the home. Some species prefer to overwinter inside and are attracted to sunny parts of the home and upper floors of buildings.
