A Comprehensive Guide to
Common Pests Found in Your Home
Many of us are aware of the importance of pest control, and know that our homes are often subject to hosting unwanted visitors all year long. But that does not mean that we are entirely aware of why pest control is so important to keep up with all year, and what these pests can actually do as far as damage to your home and health go. We have created a simple guide to help you understand the behaviors of some of the most common pests that we treat at Insight Pest Solutions to help give you a better understanding of why your pest control services matter.
Ants can be found causing issues for people all year long. While they may not be immediately dangerous to your health or your home, they are a very common nuisance and are known to take over a space very quickly. Because they live in colonies, ant infestations are very common.
Another common pest that remains active all year are termites. Termites chew through wooden structures in your home, and if you have a termite problem, your home could be at serious risk. These pests can cause so much damage the the structural integrity of your home weakens, which means you will need to take care of the problem quickly and replace damaged wood to reinforce the durability of your home.
These bugs are less dangerous, but just as annoying. They cannot spread diseases, but they can carry pollen around with them and cause allergy flare ups. They leave stains on walls and windowsills from their liquid feces, which is another reason why treating them is important.
Another nuisance that people commonly face are silverfish. They are mostly harmless, but they will cause damage to clothes, books, and can contaminate food in your home with their feces. Plus, they are just kind of creepy to look at. So make sure that you keep your eye out for silverfish and contact Insight Pest Solutions for help getting rid of them.
We all knew this one was coming at one point or another. Cockroaches can actually cause harm in your home because they contaminate food. They are scary-looking, gross, and tend to grow into a pretty big bug. Having cockroaches does not mean you are dirty or have a dirty home, it just means that they have found an easily-accessible food source and will likely keep coming back until it runs out.
The spiders that usually find their way into your home are harmless, but again, a nuisance at best. These eight-legged creatures find their way into your home through tiny cracks and crevices in hopes of finding food and protection.
While all of these pests are quite common, it does not mean that you have to live with them. At Insight Pest Solutions, our experts are trained in pest control services to keep your home safe and healthy all year long. Call Insight Pest Solutions to schedule your routine pest inspection today.
