Bedbugs are some of the most annoying pests to have in a home. These small wingless creatures hide in the crevices of beds and furniture. At night, or when there is an animal or human nearby, they emerge from their crevices to bite the host and feed off their blood. It is important to treat bedbugs as soon as possible, but they are notoriously difficult to get rid of. Bedbugs have also earned the nickname ‘hitchhikers’ because they are known to be transported through suitcases and storage boxes.
Termites are not only annoying, they cause extensive damage to homes that is not only destructive, but also very costly to repair. Termites destroy homes by eating through the wood within the structure. Signs of termites include shed wings, woodwork that sounds hollow when knocked on, sagging floors, termite droppings, and even holes found in wood within the home. Subterranean termites build nests in compound piles and underground, so it is important to watch for these so problems can be treated right away. Termites are very difficult to get rid of, particularly when a major infestation has developed.
