Roaches, Ants, Spiders; The Threats that they Creat

Posted on Sep 5, 2013

Roaches, ants and spiders are just a few of the primary pests that can make life difficult in a house, particularly during the spring and fall seasons. Pest control is a vital tool to fight against such creatures during those times when they infiltrate the home in abundance. With so many potential assailants infiltrating your home, the importance of extermination becomes increasingly important. Each one of these creatures can pose a separate problem to a home, but all of them have the same solution; pest control service.


For instance, roaches are drawn to sticky, sweet and grain-based products. When they find these products, they will set up shop, nibbling on those products over time, using their nutrients to nest and reproduce. When they eat products, they leave their tainted fecal matter and saliva behind. As a result, most food that they even touch becomes contaminated and unsuitable for human consumption.


 Ants are just as bad. Depending on the type of ant that your home is infested with, they might just find your food and contaminate it the same way that roaches do, or they could actually bite or sting you. They can also carry disease and taint your food with such diseases. What is more, if you accidentally consume a large amount of them, then they can start to cause serious health problems. The worst part about them is that they are so difficult to get rid of on your own.


Spiders are one of the most feared pests out there. Though they do not contaminate food in the same ways that roaches and ants can, they can often set up shop in your home, sometimes biting you or reproducing and creating more pests to deal with. No to mention the fact that they are frightening creatures that can move quickly and hide everywhere.


These and many other pests are all-too-common in homes, even if you have not seen them. They are small, so you seeing them could just be an indication that their infestation has become too great already. The best course of action is to handle them when they are less of a crisis so that you can prevent a larger exodus of insects and creatures into your home.
