Williamsburg Pest Control
How Do Pests Enter My Home?
Ants, termites and other small insects can access your home due to tiny cracks in your windowsills, entryways or bricks. Larger pests such as rodents will typically get inside a building that has foundation cracks or other structural issues that provide them with a large enough hole. With this in mind, it is imperative to isolate the problem and correct it instead of simply exterminating the rodents or insects that are currently present in your house. After all, failing to repair cracks and holes will make it easy for additional pests to come in.
Are Insects and Rodents Dangerous?
Although there are many insects that are relatively harmless, it is important to take action if you have termites or ants in your home. Termites can cause extensive damage that will leave you needing to pay for exorbitantly expensive repairs if they are left untreated. Some species of ants, including fire ants, are problematic because their bite is very painful. Additionally, many other types of ants can harm electrical systems and wood.
Rodents are often responsible for wood damage and chewed wires, and this can end up leading to serious issues such as an electrical fire. It is also important to note that mice and rats will occasionally bite people, and this is dangerous because they are known to carry diseases.
