Common Types of Pests in the Philippines

In tropical countries like the Philippines, pests are a rampant problem. Pests are unwanted plants, animals, insects, germs, or other organisms that interfere with human activity. Our country’s hot temperatures and high humidity have allowed the reproduction of rodents and more than 25,000 kinds of insects. Aside from mice and rats, the most common pests in our country include crawling insects (termites, cockroaches, ants) and flying insects (flies and mosquitoes).

Injury or Damage

Our health and safety are compromised due to pest infestations. While pests such as termites and rats damage our properties, insects such as mosquitoes, flies, and cockroaches bring diseases such as dengue, malaria, or diarrhea. These pests are nocturnal— if you see any of these during the daytime, you might have an infestation.


The prevalence of pests infestations nowadays makes pest management awareness crucial. Before doing any preventive measures, make sure to identify the exact pests that exist within your property. Taking preventive measures will help you identify the appropriate extermination methods to do. For low-cost measures, integrating sanitation and exclusion methods into your everyday practices are the best prevention techniques you can do for your infested property.

  • Keep garbage cans properly sealed and well-disposed.
