Pest Information

Pest Info

It’s important to have enough information about pests so that you are well aware of the various diseases that can be caused by them. Additionally, there are some insects that can cause damage to your structures too, such as termites, carpenter ants and bees, etc.

Thus, in order to get rid of them from your home or business space, you should know which pests you are going to deal with. When you’re fairly familiar with the type of pests infesting your residential or commercial building, it certainly becomes easy for our technicians to come prepared.

Most pests enter structures either because the outside weather conditions become too hostile for their survival, or in search of food. Some accidentally come into your house or are transported from place to place in or on a person’s luggage or their bedding.

The category of insects include bed bugs, house flies, crickets, mosquitoes, cockroaches, ants, etc. House flies and mosquitoes are most commonly found in hot and humid areas. House flies and cockroaches are well known for spreading pathogens and germs. All these insects are tricky to deal with and cause damage in different ways.

When insects carrying harmful pathogens and germs land on your kitchen items, such as knives, cups, dishes, etc. some germs from their legs, and other body parts stay on these items. Later, when you use these items for eating, the germs may get into your bodies and make you sick.

Rodents are altogether different from insects, and even they are experts in picking up disease-causing germs from rubbish areas, such as drains, sewers, and other unhygienic places. They invade your house looking for warmth, food or shelter and spread dangerous diseases. Moreover, they constantly gnaw, damaging your furniture, electric cables, packages, food bags, etc. in search of food.

Then, there are fabric and food pests which include, beetles, moths, mites, and others. These feeders are usually found damaging furs, woolens, silks, feathers and animal hides. Chances are that they could be accidental invaders and not likely to pose an ongoing pest problem, or there are chances you have pests feeding on your food or clothing.

If you have a garden around your house or if you have plant pots inside your house, then ensure that you inspect them regularly to keep pests away from destroying them. Even large organizations have plant pots inside their commercial space or have huge gardens outside. In such cases, there are a number of insects which won’t leave your plants alone. Some suck sap from plants, some eat plant parts, some drill into fruits, twigs and leaves, while some attack roots, barks and flowers, etc.
