Types of pests

Pests can be highly destructive to human health and properties, pest prevention by a pure pest professional is a must to keep your home safe and happy to live in. Get to know the type of pests and how they can affect you without the right pest prevention.

Pests are everywhere and destructive to humans and human concerns which include properties, health, crops, livestock, and the surrounding. Given without proper pest prevention, pest infestation could create costly damages and great loss.

Pests come in any type and size. Here are the types of pests and how they affect you in different ways:

Crawling Insects

  • Termites – Termites are highly destructible insects. Regardless of their size, they can almost break one building down if not controlled. Termites feed on wood continuously until all is left is an empty wooden shell.
  • Roaches – These crawling insects are notorious for carrying nasty bacteria and viruses around them, even gets nastier when they start walking over kitchen utensils and food. Roaches are something that is even more bizarre! In some rare cases, they are also known to chew on clothes.
  • Ants – Ants may not be that of a great concern, but can get worse when the whole colony moves into your house. Their bites also sting and can accumulate in hundreds when there is an easy access to food inside the house.
  • Bed Bugs – Bed bugs are annoying. Not only that they leave you with nasty bite marks in the morning, they are parasites that feed excessively on human blood. Their small, flat bodies enable them to stay hidden from view during daylight when they are not active. Clutters offer them easy hiding spot, as well as seams of mattresses, beddings, bed frames, carpets, and furniture.  Bed bugs can hitch a ride in purses or backpacks, which means they can travel from one room to another in multi-unit buildings.
  • Spiders – Spiders are some of the most-feared insects in the world. Though they can be helpful outdoors as they prey on many insect pests, spiders if indoors, can become a  great problem. Not all spiders are venomous. But when red back spiders and hobo spiders are found inside your home, pest control should be carried out.

Flying Insects

  • Flies – Flies are a great nuisance capable of spreading diseases and contaminating food with nasty germs and bacteria. They feed and lay their eggs on garbage and manure. They flit from one place to another which hastens the transmission of diseases. Proper sanitation is crucial when it comes to fly pest treatment. The nastier the place is, the more attractive it is to flies.
  • Mosquitoes – Mosquitoes are the number one cause of deaths around the world. They have the highest rate of victims recorded every year. Mosquitos are notable for their long proboscis which they use to draw blood from their victims. Their bites can be itchy and swollen at most times. They can be deadly as they carry viruses, dengue, and malaria which all can cause death to the unfortunate victim.
  • Bees, Hornets, & Wasps – Bees, hornets, and wasps can be solitary or social insects, depending on the species of the insect. Solitary ones are much less worrisome, unlike the social ones. Social species have queens, workers, and males and they live in big colonies in nests. These insects cause varying reactions to their sting which include swelling, pain, redness, and even death. Such species are territorial and would attack anything they see as a threat to their nests.

Rodents and Others

  • Mice & Rats – Rodents such as mice and rats are a great trouble capable of damaging properties and expensive possessions with their incisor teeth. They can gnaw on wooden walls and chew on electrical wirings. Aside from that, they can also contaminate food and transmit diseases to people. They can easily get into a property through unsealed cracks, tunnels, or open windows.
  • Possum – Possums are marsupial species native to Australia. They are nocturnal and can spend most of their times in the trees. However, they can also get into houses when natural habitat is threatened or if there is a food attraction. Like rodents, possums can also chew on electrical wirings and other valuable stuff. In other cases, they can also carry diseases such as salmonella, leptospirosis, tularemia, and coccidiosis. Possums are not dangerous as long as their interaction with humans is kept to a minimum.
