Mild weather in our part of Texas means that we suffer from year-round insect invasions that require the year-round help of a professional exterminator. Depending on the types of insects that make your home their home, you may experience everything from painful stings to contaminated food. Controlling household pests starts with identifying the species of pests and then ridding your home of them. Here are just some of the common insects you’re likely to find inside your Frisco, TX home:
Spiders spin their webs in dark, secluded areas of your home. They do not interact with humans unless humans inadvertently encroach upon their territory. Reaching behind furniture or appliances in your home that are rarely moved or moving boxes in an attic or garage can result in a bite that can trigger an allergic reaction or worse. Some species of spiders have venom that can result in necrotic (tissue death) wounds and in some cases even death.
Cockroaches breed very quickly in dark, secluded areas of your home. They will eat almost anything and can have a lifespan anywhere from a few months to two years. Many people are allergic to cockroaches and the allergens they leave behind can result in health problems that range from irritating (like diarrhea) to life-threatening (in the case of asthma).
Like most pests, flies can enter your home through any opening but usually, they enter through open windows and doors. While they don’t bite humans, they are more than a simple annoyance because they can transmit up to 65 diseases as they travel from garbage and animal feces to our food.
Common house ants can be a seasonal or a year-round problem. Many ant species live in outdoor colonies but come into your home to forage for food while other ant species build their nests inside walls and voids. Ant colonies can quickly become quite large with some containing up to 10,000 ants and multiple queens. Some of the ant species you’re likely to encounter in your home are pavement ants, carpenter ants, odorous house ants, thief ants, acrobat ants and pharaoh ants. Pharaoh ants are tiny and are the most difficult to control. Though all ants can seem like mere annoyances, they actually present a very real danger to humans because they carry over a dozen pathogens, including Salmonella, that can cause diseases. Ants relocate their nests quickly when threatened, which means only a professional exterminator can help rid your home of them.
Silverfish are small, silver-colored insects with soft bodies and wings. They seek out flour, oats, glue, dried meat and paper to consume. They damage wallpaper and clothing and contaminate food.
