Termites are never welcome guests in a home. They don’t feed on human flesh, but they do eat wood. This means that everything made of wood is at risk if you have a termite infestation, and this includes your home’s frame. An infestation that is allowed to progress unchecked can cause your city’s building authority to condemn the house, and you will be forced to leave.
Mosquitoes are flying insects that feed on the blood of humans and animals. Their bites are itchy, so these bugs are considered to be a nuisance. However, mosquitoes can also transmit serious diseases to you and your family members, including malaria, dengue, yellow fever and several types of encephalitis.
Bees & Wasps
Bees and wasps are stinging insects that build hives and nests on your property. You are likely to find a hive or a nest in your yard in hollow trees or on your fences. They also like to build hives and nests in the eaves of your home. Sometimes, bees will build a hive inside your home within the walls or in the attic. It can be very serious if you or a family member is stung repeatedly by a swarm of bees.
