Household Pest Control

Pests and insects that successfully gain entry into your home can be easily eliminated when a professional is called in to take care of the job. Household pests range anywhere from cockroaches to ants to severe termite infestations. Sometimes home owners do not realize how serious a pest problem is until there is a healthy new colony of ants or bed bugs living within the walls of their home. Each pest or insect or rodent for that matter, presents a different set of problems and issues to deal with. Although each are different in their own way, they are all a nuisance to home owners and their extermination is on the top of anyone’s priority list.

Cockroach Infestations

Cockroaches are a common household pest that are often associated with filth and dirty homes. However, cockroach infestations have been discovered in the cleanest of abodes. As long as cockroaches have a reliable water source, they can thrive in almost any type of environment. Cockroaches are known to carry thirty three types of bacteria, six parasitic worms and they have the ability to trigger asthma attacks. A cockroach can live up to nine days without its head; what a disturbing sight that would be to discover.

Lingering Flies

As weather begins to warm up, flies become a regular presence. Most of the time they linger around our pets or the pet’s food or water bowl. House flies are annoying and have been known to drive people absolutely mad. Most people believe that the common house fly is nothing more than a nuisance, however that is not the case. One of the most dangerous insects in the world is the common housefly. They carry and transmit more diseases than any other animal in the world. Keep your fly swatter close by to smash any fly you can that is in your home.
