Are you plagued by termites and other pests? Don’t let them get you down. These critters sneak into your house in a number of different ways and can wreak havoc on your life. While many people think that it’s okay to let those critters live in your home (after all, “spiders eat other insects, right?) they can actually damage your home – and your psyche if you’re afraid of them. Here’s the lowdown on some of the most common household pests, courtesy of Ozane Termite and Pest Control.
Termites are very problematic. If you let them continue to live in your home, they can damage it considerably. They eat wood and leave telltale marks in it. Over time, if they are left to do what they want, they will actually weaken the wood in your walls, beams, floor, and roof, leading to a potential collapse. On top of this, termites are difficult to irradicate on your own. If you see any signs of them at all, then you’ll need to contact an expert, such as the ones at Ozane Termite and Pest Control in order to get rid of them.
Ants are tiny, so they can sneak in through microscopic cracks in the walls that you didn’t even realize existed. While there are plenty of methods to get rid of them, including bug sprays and ant traps, they’ll keep on coming in until you figure out their entry point and seal it up. The second you leave any food exposed (even just crumbs), they’ll come back in. This is why you need an expert who has plenty of experience in dealing with insects like ants. They may not be anything but annoying, but you still don’t want them in your kitchen.
Mice tend to spread pestilence. Sure, they’re cute and fuzzy, until they run over your feet at night and scare you. Or until your cat or dog brings you a dead mouse and drops it at your feet. Yes, you don’t want mice in your house. Have you ever heard of the Black Death? Experts believe that it was caused by the bites of lice and other insects that lived on mice back during the 1300s through the 1600s. Don’t risk it. If you see a “mouse in your house” (pardon the rhyme) it’s time to call in an exterminator.
Finally, there are spiders. Like ants and termites, they sneak in through tiny cracks in your walls and foundation. You may not even be able to see these entry points, but the spiders can, and they take advantage of them. If you have spiders in your basement, building webs through the floor joists, you need to get rid of them. They might be seen as “good bugs” (even though they aren’t even bugs), but they can cause some problems, especially if you’re afraid of them. You don’t want to give them free rein at all.
