Bees & Wasps
Buzzing bees and wasps are also annoying, but unlike flies, they also sting. While the pain of one sting is not that bad, some people can have allergic reactions which are very dangerous (even fatal if not treated in time).
Even though they are tiny insects, they can create huge colonies of millions and can destroy properties. They are the most destructive pests in the world when it comes to economic damage, and their biggest advantage is that they can stay hidden for long periods of time. They feed on anything that contains cellulose, and that includes wood, paper, wires, furniture and various items found on your properties. An experienced pest control technician will know how to look for signs of termites and detect them in time. That’s why it is essential to get a termite inspection at least yearly.
Stored Products Insects
These include beetles, weevils, moths, mites and others. They do not harm people, but they do destroy or infest stored foods. The most susceptible products are cereals, seeds, nuts, spices, teas, dried fruits and even preserved meats. Moths also destroy people’s clothes and create discomfort.
Luckily, they do not bite or transmit diseases, but they are unpleasant to see and most people are very scared and disgusted by these creatures. They usually lurk in corners and hidden places and create their webs, and that’s why it is very important to ask the tenants to carefully clean the entire home.
These were just the most common ones, but there are plenty of other pests that can infest apartments. But luckily, we are here to help!
