What are Pests?
Pests are any animals, insects or plants that are considered to be a nuisance. This can include anything from rats and mice to cockroaches and ants. In some cases, pests can also refer to larger animals such as raccoons and skunks.
According to their definition, household pests are insect or animal species that can destroy your property. Additionally, there’s a possibility that they will negatively affect your health.
What are The Most common Household pests?
You may have a number of critters in your home. A few examples are:
Ants are one of the most common pests. Ants are attracted to food, moisture, and shelter. They’re prevalent indoors during Spring and Summer, but can be seen year-round if there is a moist area to nest in your home. They’re also drawn to garbage bins and/or pet food bowls. So, take care of all waste promptly to eliminate their source of attraction.
Bed Bugs can be found anywhere, but they prefer to nestle into beds and couches. They’re not dangerous, but they are a nuisance because they leave bites on your skin. If you see small red bumps on your skin that itch, then you may have bed bugs.
Wasps are winged insects that can be either a nuisance or dangerous. They feed on nectar, and aren’t known to spread disease, but they do sting humans. If you get stung by a wasp, take note of their markings so you can identify them if they come back later. Then, eradicate them immediately.
Cockroaches are one of mankind’s oldest foes. However, they are not known to spread disease, they simply want food and shelter. Their biggest health concern is their ability to contaminate any item that has come into contact with them. That includes food, drinks, cookware, and even wall hangings. Therefore, it’s extremely important to get rid of them right away because they could be bringing all sorts of contamination into your home.
Silverfish are small insects that can sometimes look like a piece of torn paper. They’re usually found near sources of food, moisture, and shelter. They don’t bite or sting humans, but they can contaminate food and other items with their feces if they come into contact with them. They love to eat organic matter like books and fabric, damaging items before moving on to something else. Therefore, it’s important to get rid of them as soon as possible before they do any more damage to your home or belongings.
Fleas are small insects that love to feast on human blood. They usually like to live off our furry friends, but if you have pets you’ll probably notice them jumping around on your carpet or furniture. If you see fleas, it’s important to get rid of them immediately because they can spread diseases like typhus and plague. Fleas also cause skin irritation when they bite humans. Therefore, eliminating them as soon as possible is a must.
Squirrels are cute, bushy-tailed rodents that hang out by trees. However, some are less cute than others. The grey squirrel, for example, will bite if it feels threatened. The problem is that you won’t always see them before they attack because they’re small and fast. If you ever find yourself being chased or bitten by a squirrel, call an exterminator immediately so you can avoid any long-term complications from their bites.
Mosquitos are a common pest that can often spread dangerous diseases like malaria, yellow fever, and dengue. As soon as you see one, it’s important to get rid of them because they can sneak into your home and bite humans while they sleep. They also lay eggs and multiply quickly, so you could soon find yourself with an infestation on your hands if you don’t get rid of them right away.
Rodents are mice and rats. They’re not just pests that make you squeamish, they are dangerous to have around your home because they can spread diseases like Hantavirus and Salmonella. It’s extremely important to eliminate them before they cause any harm.
