Controlling pests should be a part of regular home maintenance to eradicate all types of pests infesting your home.
Here are the most common pests that may already be invading your home:
Although ants may not seem to cause major problems in your property, some species of ants such as the carpenter ant can actually cause severe structural damages to your house. Most ant infestations are also difficult to get rid of. Thus, it is better to leave the pest controlling to a trained pest technician.
If you keep seeing ants in your home, then this usually means that there is already an established within your property. Still not convinced that there’s an infestation? If you see ants with wings flying around your property, then that’s definitely a red flag indicating a large colony infestation.
Among pests that should be eradicated from your home right away are cockroaches. These scary things carry with them salmonella typhi, which cause typhoid and poliomyelitis, the virus that causes polio. Roaches can also cause severe diarrhea with internal bleeding.
A cockroach infestation can be easily spotted. If you see cockroach feces, these resemble black pepper or coffee grounds, then it’s likely that you are dealing with a cockroach infestation in your home.
Bees & Wasps
We all know that bees live in their hives usually near areas with flowering plants. Bees also build their nests in tree hollows, rock crevices, and even inside your vehicle. Unfortunately, bees can also may their way into your home through small cracks and eventually building a new nest in the attic or so.
While others may think that ‘honey’ coming to your home is a blessing, bees can actually do a bit of damage with your property and even threat of stings. An infestation of different species of bees requires proper pest control. We provide specialised treatment in getting rid of bumblebees, carpenter bees, honey bees, ground bees, hornets, yellow jackets, and even wasps.
Bed Bugs & Ticks
If you see blood stains on your mattress, bed sheets, or pillowcases, then there’s probably an infestation of bed bugs already. These vermin are usually found hiding in mattresses, bedding, furniture, curtains, and carpets, to name a few.
Bed bugs strike night, and before you know it, you are already itching all over your body. Bed bug control efforts must be performed as soon as the detection of even a single bed bug to eliminate the infestation.
Although fleas are usually associated with pets, they can also feast on humans. As with bed bugs, fleabites can be extremely painful and itchy. If they’ve bitten a person with an illness, they can pass on the disease to the next person they bite.
Pet-owners are mostly the ones at risk of a flea infestation. Once fleas infiltrate your home, they can survive for 100 days, even without a host.
House flies are the most common insects on the planet. Poor sanitation and the existence of fly larvae can most likely lead to house fly infestations. Although you may use a fly swatter to whack flies in your home, it is best to locate the root cause of the infestation to get rid of flies and the various health risks they bring.
There are several diseases that flies transmit. Such transmissible diseases include typhoid, cholera, trachoma, diarrhea, and conjunctivitis.
Rats & Mice
Damaged materials, holes in walls, foul smell, urine puddles, and rat droppings are the usual signs of a rat and / or mice infestation. Such rodents do not only cause damage to property, but they also carry bacterial infections, most commonly Leptospirosis. Other diseases transmitted by rodents are salmonellosis, tularemia, and Lymphocytic Chorio-meningitis (LCM).
The cheapest ways to get rid of rats and mice are using baiting traps, rodenticides, and glue boards. But if you are looking for a reliable and long term rat control solution, hire the services of a professional pest control technician.
If you live near a pond, a creek, or anywhere near standing water, chances are there is already a mosquito infestation in your house. Certain mosquitos are actually able to transmit dengue fever, chikungunya, and the zika virus.
Don’t wait until you experience the consequences of a mosquito infestation in your home. Take control measures immediately.
Termites are a threat to your home – there is no debating that. If you believe that there is a termite infestation in or within your property, then call a pest control company immediately.
Aside from the damages they do on wood, termites can cause allergic reactions and asthma attacks on people who are living in the infested home.
