Did you know that human beings aren’t the only creatures who can cause property damage? A wide variety of pests, from cockroaches to termites, can make your home less livable and more expensive to maintain. Pointe Pest Control is committed to helping you keep these uninvited guests out of your home and away from your family and belongings with the following list of the top 10 pests to watch out for!
Ants get in through little cracks or holes in your walls and set up colonies by building a network of tunnels in your yard, inside the home, or under potted plants.
Bedbugs have been in the news lately. After a sizable influx of refugees, and a higher concentration of travelers staying in hotels, bed bugs have begun popping up everywhere. They infest mattresses, furniture, and walls of buildings. Bed bugs don’t just live on beds–they crawl into electronics, clothing, couches, and chairs. If you are noticing bites or finding blood stains on your linens then chances are that you’re dealing with bed bugs.
An infestation of cockroaches can result in severe health problems for you and your family. Cockroach droppings contain germs that can cause a wide range of diseases such as E. coli, salmonella, and staphylococcus aureus.
What You Can Do To Control Pests in Your Home?
One way that you can combat pests is by trimming your hedges and shrubs. Another way to combat this issue is by setting up a perimeter of traps around the outside of your house. If any pest makes it past the perimeter, you will have them trapped for easy capture. Finally, installing locks on your doors can help keep pesky insects from finding their way inside.
You should also seal cracks in the walls and floorboards to make sure these critters don’t get access to your home. Also, there are many natural pesticides you can use to get rid of these pests without harming yourself or others.
In conclusion, there are many pests that you need to be on the lookout for and these are just some of the top ten. Make sure that you know what you are looking for so that you can get rid of them as soon as possible. Hope you like this post! I hope it helps you out in pest control.
