As a leader in Henderson County pest control, we believe homeowners should be prepared for home-invading insects. Some pests, of course, are more threatening than others. Spiders, termites, and ants are among the most destructive members of the pest community, and an infestation can cost you from both a financial and health standpoint. Here’s what you need to know.
Even those without arachnophobia usually don’t want to share their home with spiders. Spiders are actually an efficient method of pest control themselves, but some species can be hazardous. Learn to identify black widows, brown recluses, and other species that can cause serious harm to your family and pets.
Termites are common to every U.S. state except Alaska. Certainly, they have a healthy presence in North Carolina. These colony insects can enter your home by chewing through the wood or by finding cracks and crevices near the foundation. Either way, they can cause significant property damage once there.
Most species of ants are relatively benign, but once they’ve marked your home as a reliable source of food, they can be very difficult to eradicate. Ants can infest your kitchen, contaminate your food supply, and some species have been known to deliver a painful bite. Where there is a single ant, there are usually thousands more waiting back at the colony.
