Why You Should Never Ignore Pests
January 25, 2018
Oftentimes, we fill our lives with so many things to do that we end up at a point of sheer craziness. Combine family, kids, pets, work, school, and other activities, and it is no wonder that so many people overlook the little pests that we see in and around our homes every day. However, those pests that are overlooked could cause some serious problems that you will not want to ignore.
If you see a carpenter ant and you don’t act on it right away, you could end up with some costly repairs to the structure of your home. These industriously destructive pests will enter your home looking for food, most likely in your kitchen or pantry. Once inside they often like to develop satellite colonies under your floors, inside crawl spaces, basements, and other moist or damp areas with rotting or damaged wood sources. Carpenter ants do not eat wood like termites do, but they do burrow through wood like mini excavators, making tunnels that can severely damage wood and threaten the strength of your home.
Likewise, if you ignore a rodent or a shrug off with a grumble a sighting of a few rodent droppings inside your home, you could be allowing illness and damages to wreak havoc in your home. Rodents will be evasive and are not known to be aggressive toward humans, but they are continually looking to take advantage of their surroundings no matter the cost to you. Their instinctual gnawing can be a danger to floors, walls, ceilings, doors, windows, personal items, pipes, cables, and electrical wires. Rodents can also carry bacteria and parasites into your home. Diseases include salmonella and dysentery, and parasites such as fleas and ticks, all of which can cause serious illnesses.
The lesson here is that the earlier you catch an infestation, the less likely it will result in serious problems for your home and family.
