Centipedes and Millipedes are tinier, often better hidden insects then your
average pest. But do not forget that these insects are still pests who can cause just as
much, if not more harm to you and your household then the likes of cockroaches or
Centipedes and millipedes, like many other pests, are most often drawn into
houses that provide a reliable food source, often when the winter begins. Their small
size (small even compared to most insects) mean they can’t hold in moisture the same
way as other pests. Damp areas of your home are most likely where you’ll often find
them. Both insects are largely nocturnal, meaning they are active in the nighttime. Their
nocturnal activities coupled with their small size means centipede and millipede
infestations commonly go unnoticed by homeowners for long periods of time.
Both types of insects are known to bite when threatened. Centipedes can bite
people in self-defense and inject their venom into the skin. More massive centipedes
may deliver more venom, causing intense pain. When alarmed, millipedes fold up in a
tight spiral frame and secrete toxic chemicals, which can result in a vicious burning
sensation in your skin. If millipedes come into contact with the eyes it could lead to
swelling, itching and redness of your cornea.
Centipede and Millipede infestations are very much bad news and likely require
professional assistance. Since both insects primarily feed on other insects, this means
your house likely has multiple pest infestations. Professional pest control companies
have the skills and equipment for effective house centipede extermination and control,
while also taking on any other type or level of pest infestation you may be dealing with.
There is almost no more widespread and common fear among people than the fear of spiders. Arachnophobia is one of the most common phobias in the world, with most studies finding more than 5% of all people suffering from it. And while many spiders are not harmful, several species of spiders can be very dangerous, meaning you want to do everything you can to keep the creepy crawlies out of your house.
In homes, spiders tend to build webs in basements, garages, and corners of rooms, gaining entry through cracks in the building. Unlike many other pests, they do not go after your food, but rather build webs in sheltered areas to collect flies and other insects. The most common times spiders enter your home is in the late summer or early autumn to search for mates. Any areas that are not commonly cleaned can act as a refuge for spiders, meaning hard to reach corners and dusty areas of your home are usually their favourite hiding spots.
While the average spider tends to avoid humans, spider bites still can occur and can cause serious harm. Bites typically result from the victim putting on a shoe or piece of clothing with a spider trapped inside. The widow spider is the only spider found in Canada that can be dangerous to humans. Symptoms depend on the bite area, victim sensitivity, and amount of venom injected. A house spider’s poison will not harm people because it is quite weak. However, if left untreated, the bite can carry infectious diseases such as Lyme disease.
If large numbers of spiders continue to appear in your home, extermination can become much more difficult. Professional spider and pest control services have the wide range capabilities to cover and treat all ends of your home. Pest control is the best exterminator for spiders and should be consulted if your spider population grows to infestation levels.
There are countless pests that can invade and negatively affect your home. In this
article, we will focus on a specific pest that can greatly harm your home and family, and
how Pest Control can be the best pest exterminator for the job. Here, we talk briefly about
rodents, particularly Rats and Mice.
Rodents are the nightmare pest for the average homeowner. Their size, mental
capacity and general health risks far outweigh the threats caused by most insect species.
Many species of mice and rats are known to invade homes and the danger they pose to
the house and homeowners themselves can not be overstated.
Rodents are attracted to your house due to many common pest promoters, those
being food, water, and warm environments. What sets rodents apart is the lengths to
which they will go to obtain those things. In terms of food rodents, especially rats, will eat
just about anything. Not just things like food scraps or expired meat. Things like leather,
wood and even soap are eaten by rats. Garbage cans are almost always the first thing
that attracts rodents. If there even a single flaw in your garbage can, a rodent will find it.
Usually any water sources such as leaky pipes or pet water bowls can attract rodents,
particularly in regions will little annual rainfall. Bad maintaining of your property, including
putting off repairs of exterior sections of your house, can cause holes and flaws that can
allow for easy access for rodents.
Prolonged exposure to rodents or severe infestation can cause several health
issues. Some rodents can carry hantavirus, a rare respiratory disease which they can
also transmit from their saliva, urine, and feces. This disease can be fatal in humans, and
there is no known cure. Mice can also spread diseases like tularemia, lymphocytic
choriomeningitis, and murine typhus. At the same time, rats can carry bubonic plague,
Weil’s disease, toxoplasmosis, and trichinosis. Rats and mice both contaminate food with
their feces, urine, and saliva and can bring parasites, such as fleas, lice, and ticks into
your household. Rodent remains also pose a severe health hazard to humans. Symptoms
from a rat or mouse bite can include stuffy nose, itchy eyes, itching, coughing, skin rashes,
difficulty in breathing and other respiratory problems.
Due to the high threat of injury and disease from rats, ending an infestation by
yourself is very difficult. Furthermore, rodents can easily be drawn back to your home,
even after an infestation has been subdued. Because of this, contracting professional
pest control is often the best exterminator for rats and mice. They have the tools and
experience to remove any rodent in your home, and to set up a strong perimeter that will
keep rodents out of your home for good.

Fire Ants are one of the most invasive and dangerous types of ants you can find. They are capable of contaminating your food as well as causing harm through their bites.
Like other ants, fire ants are attracted to food sources. They look for scraps and any garbage that’s been left behind. Sweet foods such as honey, candies, jellies, or syrup are favorites of fire ants. Excess moisture is also attracts the pests, meaning leaking pipes and drains are a common place to find ants. Finally, the fragrance of most plants as well as the damp soil used for plants can often attract fire ants. Do not leave soil residue lying around as it attracts them.
The fire ant’s infamous bites are what make them highly dangerous. Fire ants bite and sting their victim when they feel disturbed or threatened while foraging for food. When most fire ants bite, they inject toxic alkaloid venom. The bite causes a painful sting in humans, and the result can be deadly to sensitive individuals.
Fire ant removal is a difficult task due to the sheer number of ants per colony. Most ant species build hills that house an average of 250,000 of the pests. Because of this, total extermination is very difficult. Professional fire ant removal services from Pest control are highly recommended as they have the skills and equipment to properly remove pests like fire ants without getting bitten a thousand times in the process.
