Bedbugs

With the resurgence of bedbugs around the world, many lives turned upside down. How so? Bedbugs are inconspicuous creatures. As tiny as they are, they possess the ability to hide behind paintings on the wall, in luggage and mattresses. Additionally, during a feast (feast on you) bedbugs tend to inject a numbing substance that makes its host oblivious to its attack. Talk about a stealth attack. While their bites are painless, they do leave nasty and irritable scars. Worst yet, even after treatment of an infestation, bedbugs tend to resurface.

Cockroaches

It’s really not rocket science to determine whether you have a cockroach infestation on hand. However, there will be problems determining what type of cockroaches you’re infested with since they’re several. While there are pest cockroaches, others are considered useful and beneficial to the environment as they serve as recyclers of organic decaying material. On the other hand, pest cockroaches are bearers of several diseases as a consequence of their habitat – often found amongst waste deposits and anywhere food is found. Like bedbugs, cockroaches are challenging to completely remove from the home, as they seep through cracks and the tiniest holes within the home.

Termites

Termites are silent perpetrators. They’re highly covert and have only one intention, to satisfy their hungry, at the expense of your home. Termites are consumers of plant material high in cellulose. All homes, despite the type of construction, provides cellulose food to host an infestation of termites into your home. As detritus feeders, termites are accustomed to tearing through woody material, dead plants, and trees. House foundations, books, shelves, and even furniture are feeding sites for termites.

Ants

While controlling an ant infestation is challenging and tedious, it can be done once their behavior is scrutinized. As they are able to enter into the tiniest cracks in your home, it’s difficult to get to them. They mostly linger in the kitchen as that’s closest to their food source and water. Leaving a pheromone behind, other ants can follow this chemical trail.

Rodents

The behavior and biology of rodents make them challenging to control. Rats are cautious about anything new in their surroundings, including traps, burrows, baits and others. Without intelligence, they heavily rely on instinct. In addition to their instinctual behavior, rats carry diseases. Not only are they bearers of these diseases, but they transmit them to humans, especially if their stool is involved.
