Insect invaders are never welcome in your home. Put a stop their advancements with pest control services. These buggy creatures can cause a number of structural, health, and general hygienic problems in your residence. Don't expose your family to these vile creatures any longer. Get the professionals out to your home before these insects can cause you and your family some real trouble. Let's take a look at a few of the common insect infestations that homeowners should be aware of. If you notice any of the things below, do not hesitate to call pest control to exterminate these insects where they stand.
Summertime brings pleasant, warm weather, but it's also the perfect time for a sharp increase in flea populations. While the majority of health problems that these lecherous insects cause will be to your pets, they can be quite an annoyance to your daily life, causing you itchy skin and red bumps. When you call out an exterminator to deal with your flea problem, they will ask you a number of questions to determine how bad your infestation is. You will also need to do a few things before they start the extermination process:
- Vacuum the entirety of your home and then place the used vacuum bags in the garbage.
- Pick up all loose books, toys, and other clutter off the floor.
- Wipe down or mop all tiled surfaces that cannot be vacuumed.
- Get your pets treated for fleas.
- Provide an empty home for at least four hours so the chemicals can do their job.
Post-extermination, you should vacuum as often as possible and keep a sharp eye on your pets to ensure that the infestation does not return.
These wood-eating insects are found in every single state except for Alaska. Almost all of these insects operate on the subterranean level so it will be hard for you to see them. If these bugs cannot find wood to eat in their natural surroundings, they will turn their attention on your home. Any wood in your home that makes contact with the soil allows termites easy access to your residence. Do not keep firewood right by your home, as this attracts termites. Getting regular pest control inspections for termites could save you thousands upon thousands of dollars in structural repairs. If you notice a number of discarded wings around your windowsills or small tunnels in your home's corners and other wooden places, call your exterminator as soon as possible.
There are over 240,000 documented species of these flying nuisances in existence. Over one-third of these types can be found in the United States. These bugs are confirmed disease carriers, and they are quite adept at passing bacteria over to human beings. They breed anywhere that there is decaying matter, which allows them to attain and distribute numerous viruses and bacteria. These insects can go from egg to full blown fly in under seven days, so if you have a fly problem, it is best to get pest control out to your residence as quickly as possible to quell this growth.
Be vigilant in your home! Do not allow your residence to run rampant with insects.

Everyone hates mosquitoes. Besides the annoying buzzing and biting, mosquito-borne diseases like malaria kill over a million people each year (plus horses, dogs and cats). And over the past 100 million years, they've gotten good at their job -- sucking up to three times their weight in blood, totally undetected. So shouldn't we just get rid of them? Rose Eveleth shares why scientists aren't sure.
