Flies are surely an annoying pest. Anyone who’s attended an outdoor gathering such as a picnic or cookout knows how relentless they can be. Even one or two flies buzzing around and landing on food will be irritating until you finally are able to swat them. Flies will find their way indoors too and bug you in your home. So is an infestation dangerous?
Cockroaches are nocturnal. They prefer to live and feed in the dark, so if you see one during the day it's a possible sign of an infestation. Like most small pests they can hide virtually anywhere, though roaches do tend to have some preferred hiding areas.
Bed bugs are small, relatively common insects found commonly in homes. They feed on human blood, usually at night, and they can cause itchy bites that range in severity. Their bites can result in rashes or itchy blisters and bumps for most people, while other people don’t even notice. Some individuals may find that they are seriously allergic to bed bug bites which can make having these critters around even more dangerous.
Termites are responsible for over $1 billion in damages to property each year in the United States. Fortunately, there are ways to exterminate termites and prevent them. Termites work fast so they can often destroy your most treasured items before you even know they're there.
