About Bed Bugs
Bed bugs are tiny insects that are skilled at hiding in the cracks and crevices in your home. While these pests do not cause structural damage, living with a bed bug infestation can prove to be unpleasant. Bed bug bites can cause itching, redness and swelling.
Infestations of bed bugs often occur after the pests have hitched a ride into a building by burrowing into clothing. The small size of bed bugs makes it easy for them to go unnoticed until infestation levels have been reached, and it is very difficult to get rid of these pests.
Termites are small insects that may enter your home through the soil or by swarming near wooden structures. These pests make their nests by burrowing deep into wood. Significant damage is caused by this nesting behavior, and the small size of termites means that it is common for homeowners to be unaware of the damage being done.
Rodents may live in the crawlspaces of a home. If you hear scratching noises in the walls of your house, you may be living with a rodent infestation. These pests carry diseases that can cause serious complications. Rodents are also known to gnaw on electrical wiring, and frayed wires have the potential to cause a fire.
Common house spiders can help keep your home free of insects, but it is possible for these arachnids to take over your space when an infestation occurs. No one wants to live with a spider infestation, and there are certain types of the pest that can cause serious harm to you and your family.
Black widow spiders are identified by a red hourglass on their abdomens. Brown recluse spiders have a violin pattern on their backs. These arachnids are poisonous, but most adults who are bitten by black widows or brown recluses have only mild symptoms. People with weakened immune systems, children, pregnant women and the elderly are more likely to develop life-threatening complications from a black widow or brown recluse bite.
