Insects

Although some insects are beneficial to you and the environment, others carry viruses and other diseases that can make you very sick and may cause death. Some insects are down right annoying and their bites and stings are painful. They are especially worrisome for babies, young children, and older adults.

Insects are opportunists. They want the same things as you do. They seek warmth, food, water, and a nice, quiet place to live and they will take advantage of any opportunity that comes their way.

Mosquito's, flys, fleas, roaches, bedbugs, spiders, and ants are common insects that people try to keep under control. Billions of dollars a year are spent on insects sprays, powders, pellets, traps, and other types of poisons in an effort to eradicate insects and keep them out of homes and businesses.

Other insects such as subterranean termites, dry wood termites, powderpost beetles, carpenter ants, and certain species of bees do major structural damage to homes. Termites are especially damaging to homes and other wooden structures.

  • Note: It is said that termites do more damage to homes than hurricanes, tornadoes, windstorms, rain, floods, and earthquakes combined. Once you get an infestation of these termites, they can thrive for years in the walls of your home by eating away the inside of wooden beams and boards without being noticed.

As a homeowner, it is very important that you control the insects that may infest your home.

Insects are tiny animals and they can get into your home through cracks, open windows and doors, loose floorboards, and through vents. They can also catch a ride on you and your family members, and on animals that come into your home such as dogs, cats, mice, and birds.
