Bed bugs have recently made a comeback in the United States. Unlike dust mites, bed bugs are large enough to be seen and appear flat with a redish-brown color. The tiny bugs hide in cracks, crevices, creases, and anywhere else that is small and difficult to reach. At night, the bugs come out and drink the blood of their hosts.
There are some pests you just cannot prevent from entering your home no matter how secure you believe your house may be. Mice are just one of these persistent pests. Not only are they capable of squeezing into areas a fraction of their body size, but they are skilled climbers and can jump amazing gaps. Although they do appear to be small and harmless, these rodents are capable of doing major damage to your home as well as contaminating everything inside of it. What makes the situation of infestation worst is the fact that these tiny nuisances have an extremely high reproductive rate. With all of this in mind, it may make you feel as though eradication would be impossible. However, there are many ways to remove mice from your home.
With the steady increase in the insect and rodent population occurring in all areas of the country, people are experiencing a rise in household pests. Some of the most common pests–termites, roaches, ants–can effect not only the structure of you home, but also the health of your family.
Ant infestations are a common problem for many households. The little insects seem to come out of nowhere, covering the counter tops, hiding in cereal boxes, or flocking to a piece of dropped food the moment it hits the floor. While ants do not pose any significant health risks to humans, an ant infestation is downright gross and can lead to throwing away a number of ant accessible food items.
