Like most cities in the Northwest, Cheney is a perfect environment for a variety of household pests. Parasitic insects like fleas, ticks, and bed bugs can turn a welcoming home into a hostile war zone. In the United States, destructive pests like termites and rodents cause billions of dollars in property damage each year. Learning the facts about these troublesome creatures is the best way to minimize their impact on your home.
Dangers of Pest Infestations
A large presence of biting or stinging insects on a property is extremely stressful to the inhabitants, and a number of species also pose a significant health risk. Many people have severe allergic reactions to the bites and stings of insects like bed bugs, bees, and spiders. Parasites like fleas and ticks sometimes carry dangerous bacteria and illnesses, including Lyme disease. Many non-biting pests also spread diseases, and rats and mice are known to transmit parasites and illnesses to people and other animals. Wood-boring insects like termites are much less dangerous to humans, but they can cost homeowners a great deal of money by consuming and destroying construction timbers.
How Pests Enter the Home
Most invasive pests can easily find their way into man-made structures. Cracks and holes in walls, windows, and door frames make suitable points of entry for a variety of insects and rodents. Small insects like bed bugs and fleas can also hitch a ride on humans, pets, and used furniture. If invasive pests have entered your home, contact Eden Advanced Pest Technologies for a free quote.
