They do more than just bug you
Having swarms of insects around your house can be a nuisance to everyday life. However, many dangers arise when infested with stinging insects.
The poster child of stinging insects is bees. Bees are a crucial part of the ecosystem because they pollinate most of the world's fruits and flowers. Although vital, when a hive decides to establish itself in homes, garages, or barns it can make you and your family vulnerable to stings. If someone is allergic and/or gets stung too many times it can prove fatal.
Wasps and Hornets
Wasps and hornets may pollinate plants but they are not nearly as effective as bees. The two also can sting more than once without dying and they are also usually larger than bees so the stings hurt more than that of bees. Removing wasps and hornets from or near your home is essential if you wish to avoid unneeded, painful stings.
When ants find a food source, they release chemicals that lead the rest of the colony to it. That is why you see ants following each other single file. They are on the trail, searching for the crumbs left on the floor. Once in the home, the ants will search for other food and repeat the process over and over again. Because they are so small, they can fit through holes and get into your home. This can be very annoying or even gross to some people. If you don't find them either of those things, it is also important to note that ants bite and some ants bite hard. Critter Control of Kansas City will help you get rid of them for whatever reason.
Fleas and Bedbugs
The previous stinging insects generally try to avoid the members of your family. Fleas and Bedbugs, on the other hand, search out hosts when they least expect them. They latch on to their prey and suck the blood out, trying to remain as inconspicuous as they can. Bedbugs do not carry diseases that affect humans but their bites cause intense itching. If left untreated, they can ruin things like bedding and mattresses from defecation. On the other hand, fleas do carry diseases and parasites that can infect humans. Because of this, it is important to remove these pests as fast as possible.
Mosquitos are not only an extreme nuisance; they are the deadliest animal in the world. They are responsible for more deaths than the next nine animals on the list combined. There are national programs set in place which aim to decrease the population of mosquitos to protect citizens. If you are being harassed by this deadly pest, Critter Control is here to help!
