Facts

  • Contrary to popular belief, spiders are extremely beneficial. Spiders are in fact one of the most natural forms of pest control, preying on insects that are considered to be pests.

  • Rodents are a particular threat. Not only are they destructive towards clothes, food, and other items, they also carry many different diseases such as typhoid and rabies. Infestation will be evident from chewed and damaged property, as well as droppings.

  • Silverfish will be apparent. They will often be seen moving small objects, and their antennae are nearly as long as their body. They go after foods with protein, and a lot of starch & sugar. They are also fans of glue and various fabrics.

  • Tick bites are normally harmless, although Lyme Disease, along with many other forms of diseases, can sometimes be transferred.

  • Flea infestations usually occur after jumping off of pets. Once on the ground they make their way into items such as rugs. Nearly undetectable at first, they lay many eggs that soon develop and form cocoons. Disturbances such as heat, pressure, or noise, will often trigger the cocoons to unravel, causing the infestation to surface.

  • The saliva of roaches is highly allergenic, as well as their droppings, which can also be allergenic. Recent studies indicate that there is a strong connection between the presence of cockroaches, and the severity of asthma symptoms increasing.

Where To Look (Inside / Outside)

  • Check for shelter tubes coming out from the soil in the foundation of your house, the garage, and other structure. ¬†

  • Observe roof eaves and gutters for and possible leakage, causing the wood to rot.¬†

  • Check the floor covering for raised or split areas.

  • Inspect the corners where the wall and floor meet.

  • Check fuse boxes within the walls, often infested.

  • In the case of rodents, check underneath structure in your house; they may be a hole under simple things such as the refrigerator, the stove, a cupboard, cabinets, and etc.

Detection

Thorough inspections can determine whether infestations and damage are present. At the first signs of suspicion it is important to investigate the problem, and contain it if it is present. The longer you wait, the worse the infestation can get, and the area over which it spreads will increase. When inspecting, it is useful to have at hand a flashlight, a sharp-pointed object such as a screwdriver, a ladder and protective clothing. In the case that an infestation is found, make sure to write down and keep track of the areas contaminated. In many cases, infestations can be found in shelter tubes hidden behind walls. A moisture meter will detect increased moisture levels in the tubes, hinting infestation, or potential for infestation.
