There are a few things you need to be aware of when you are designing your Las Vegas landscape. There are many desert pests that are attracted to certain vegetation. If you want to avoid any chance of these pests intruding your home, you should avoid using these specific plants in your yard.
Scorpions tend to live under rocks or palm trees. If your current landscape consists of either and you are considering getting it redone, prepare yourself for a scorpion infestation. If you remove their home, they will scatter everywhere and likely move their pesky selves into your home.
If you are starting completely new with your landscape and want to get rocks or palm trees, don’t worry. You can get new landscape with either and you shouldn’t have to worry about scorpions invading your home. Sure, many will live right outside your home, but they won’t ever both you. If you want to get a beautiful rock landscape, just be aware that if you ever want to change it you may have an infestation.
Of course, there are many other insects besides scorpions that will intrude your home. Spiders, crickets and even snakes could be attracted to your home depending on your Las Vegas landscape. Rock landscape is good at preventing nearly any type of insect. There is no vegetation for it to feed on. Assuming you leave it as is, you won’t even have to worry much about scorpions. Rock landscape can be customizable as well. You can choose from a variety of colors and create different patterns along your yard.
In Las Vegas it can be very hard to maintain many different plants. Some people do have rose gardens in their yard, but over the summer it doesn’t look too pleasant. Besides the maintenance of a rose garden, it can also attract pesky little critters to your home. Bees can be deadly if you are allergic. No matter what type of flower you have in your yard, bees will be attracted to it. Avoid any chance of bees bothering you, and design your Las Vegas landscape without flowers.
Some people choose to landscape their yard with cacti. This is convenient because the plants won’t die in the Las Vegas sun. They come in all different sizes and unique shapes. The dire question here: what insects does cacti attract? Fortunately, cacti does not attract any horrible insects. Spiders and scorpions have no desire to be around cacti. There is a variety of mealybugs, caterpillars, cochineal insects and birds that are attracted to cacti. Luckily, these are not deadly insects. There are a lot smaller than many spiders and scorpions, so they won’t bother you as much.
Sure, birds may not be a tiny insect, but they won’t try to intrude your home. They will fly around the cacti, drink up its fluids then fly on its own way. They shouldn’t be bothersome at all.
