Most Common Pest Problems

The world outside your front door is crawling with insects, bugs, birds and rodents, all hungry and all constantly looking new and/or improved shelter. Your house is incredibly appealing to these little buggers, so it is no surprise they often find a way in and begin to breed in massive numbers. The following are some of the most common pest infestations. If you experience any of them it is important to contact a pest control specialist as soon as possible.

Bed Bugs

Have you been waking up with strange, itchy marks on your arms, shoulders or elsewhere on your body? Do they come in rows of three or more? These are sure signs of a bed bug infestation. While they are not known to cause diseases their bites will result in itchy welts that could bleed if scratched.


Termites are nasty insects that eat away at cellulose in wood, resulting in potential structural damage that is going to be expensive to repair. They could chew right through the bones of your home! In the USA they cause billions of dollars in damage every year. If you spot discarded wings or strange wood damage call an exterminator right away.


Ants are constantly on the prowl for food sources. Open containers, crumbs and other types of food waste will all put off a scent that is attractive to ants of many different varieties. Ants may bite and they will certainly contaminate your food, so don’t wait to call a pest control specialist.


These icky bugs are known to ruin meals and pass on multiple diseases. They breed very fast so get to a phone as soon as you spot a cockroach or a sign of a cockroach or else you may soon be hearing them crawling through the house in groves.


Rats and mice seem to be some of the hungriest animals in the world. They are always trying to find the next thing to put in their tummies. Unfortunately, much of what they want to eat is in your pantry. Be sure to clean up messes to prevent a rodent party in your kitchen.
