Some pests are so ubiquitous, we often forget how dangerous they are. From small, innocuous-looking insects to common rodents, it can be easy to get complacent when it comes to your pest troubles, and ultimately regret it when the infestation becomes serious. However large or small the issue may appear, it’s important to stay cognizant of dangerous bugs and rodents, and take the necessary steps to keep your home and family safe.
We’ve all heard of termites, but until you’ve had an infestation yourself, it can be difficult to conceptualize how dangerous these bugs actually are. In even a short period of time, they can easily and quickly cause structural damage to your home. In addition to wood, termites also look for paper, drywall and even books, and it’s estimated that they cause over five billion dollars in damage each year. Even more concerning, homeowner’s insurance typically does not cover termite damage, so if left untreated, the issue could cost you a fortune.
Our pest control professionals at Bain will provide an evaluation for your property, and a customized treatment program to eliminate these dangerous bugs.
Due to booming populations and the advent of new mosquito-borne diseases, it’s increasingly possible that you, a family member, or a pet, will contact an illness related to these dangerous bugs. Eastern Equine Encephalitis and West Nile Virus are two of the most serious illnesses that humans need to worry about, but canines aren’t in the clear either. Mosquitoes can spread larvae to your dog, which can infect the heart or lungs and cause Canine Heartworm, a life-threatening condition.
Bain’s Sales and Service team has a clear understanding of mosquitoes, their routines, breeding habits, and so forth. Our comprehensive mosquito treatment processes, including the use of reduced risk pesticides and non-chemical procedures to control pest activity, are highly effective in managing these dangerous bugs.
The name “bedbugs” might sound like a cute punchline, but they are actually among the more rapidly-spreading and dangerous bugs. They can appear anywhere (not just beds), including businesses, apartment buildings, college dormitories, hospitals, nursing homes, and even hotels. They have a long lifespan, and their eggs can be resistant to most pesticide treatments.
Since females lay between two to five eggs every day for up to six months, they can spread extremely quickly. Our technicians are expertly trained to eliminate bedbug eggs, and are members of BedbugFREE, a network of pest management professionals throughout the United States that share a proven philosophy and approach to bedbug management.
Contrary to common perception, mice are actually dirtier than rats, and clean themselves far less often. Because of this, layers of grease can develop on their fur, rubbing off on the surfaces of your home, and carrying diseases. Smaller in size than rats, they can fit through smaller openings, need less food to survive, and reproduce faster. They can also chew on wires, contributing to structural damage.
If you have a mouse or rat infestation, Bain will inspect to assess possible points of entry and use a variety of proven, methods to eradicate them.
If you’re concerned that you may have a dangerous bug or rodent infestation, don’t hesitate to contact Bain Pest Control today.
