Termites and Roaches
Termites and roaches are critters that can establish ground colonies rather quickly. While termites can destroy wooden structures within just a few weeks, roaches typically build nests behind walls and underneath fixtures. Roaches can leave behind droppings and egg capsules, which can be particularly problematic for allergy sufferers.
Mosquitoes and Wasps
Mosquitoes are usually found near areas with standing water. Because mosquitoes require host blood to lay eggs, the females generally seek out humans for nourishment. Mosquitoes can pass West Nile virus, yellow fever and malaria to their victims. Wasps and bees, which build nests in trees and gutters, are known for their powerful stings. The venom can cause severe allergic reactions in some people.
Birds and Other Wildlife
Birds, rodents, and other larger species can also cause problems for homes and businesses. Birds can leave droppings on sidewalks and tables. Mice and rats, on the other hand, can invade basements and attics. In areas that are a bit more rural, squirrels, raccoons and skunks can also present debilitating problems. Once they've begun to nest, they can damage support structures and invade kitchen areas.
