Termite damage is not usually covered by home insurance policies and the destruction they can cause over time is staggering. The average damage caused to a home in the United States is approximately $7,000-$8,000.
Mice like to cozy up in warm, quiet places such as cabinets or even in the walls of a building. They are active all year and enjoy incessantly gnawing on furnishings and chewing through the packaging of food. Like rats, they are known to spread disease.
Cockroaches prefer to be nocturnal. They will feed on any type of food and like to reside in warm places, kitchens, and walls. They also may carry diseases.
Wasps are common all over the United States and can easily become a problem considering they also pose as a threat to people that are allergic to them. They build nests in areas such as wall cavities, trees, underground, and in eaves and each nest can contain over 25,000 wasps at once. They can enter buildings through open windows, doors, or other spaces.
Mosquitoes are common during the warm seasons such as spring and summer. They have the possibility of carrying diseases and tend to bite very often. They tend to become a problem around sunset. Currently there are more than 150 species of mosquitoes in the United States.
Along with mice, rats are known to carry and spread diseases. Signs to watch for that may indicate you have a rat infestation are droppings and teeth marks on electrical wiring or cables. One of the most common species in the United States is the Black Rat.
Flies are one of the biggest nuisances in the world. They are very common and can carry a multitude of diseases that include food poisoning bacteria. There are many species from houseflies to fruit flies.
Bed bugs are the vampires of the insect world right alongside mosquitoes. They fed on human blood and effective control of them is difficult because they are quick to spread. Although their name infers that they reside in ‘beds’ they can also reside in cracks and crevices of your home. It is highly recommended that professional services are used to rid your home of bed bugs.
Ants are known for their foraging skills and habits. Their nests can be located on lawns usually in warm, dry soil or under pavement - anywhere there is finely powdered soil. Ants will enter homes in search of food to bring back to their nests.
Spiders can be located in almost any small, warm, and dark places such as cracks in the wall, corners, air vents, and eaves. The United States is home to thousands of varying spider species that differ in size.
