When it comes to keeping your home safe, what comes to mind? You most likely think of secure gas lines, air quality control, or mold remediation. Although these are all important aspects of keeping your home safe for your family, they are certainly not the only. Pests can not only cause a significant amount of damage to property, killing trees and plants, but they can also do damage to your home itself and transmit Lyme Disease, West Nile Virus, Malaria, Yellow Fever or other illnesses to you and your family. Many pests like termites and wood-boring beetles will attempt to seek shelter in your home, destroying its structure while at the same time, transmitting disease and polluting your water supply.

Common Household Pests

Whether you know the specific pest that’s causing you problems, or you’ve just noticed damage to your home with no idea of what caused it, it’s important to take into consideration the time of year and the type of environment your home is in. Although there are a variety of pests that could be plaguing your Gloucester, Massachusetts home, a certified expert at CleanPro will be able to analyze your situation and determine what pest your property should be treated for.

Ticks

Small, blood-sucking arachnids, ticks are usually more active in hot and dry conditions. Although these pests don’t typically harbor themselves in homes like other pests do, they may be brought in by pets or other animals like bats. Ticks are most commonly known for carrying Lyme Disease, which if left untreated, can lead to problems with the brain and nervous system, circulatory system, the reproductive system, and more. According to the federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, 300,000 people are diagnosed with Lyme Disease each year.

Mosquitoes

These are the most notoriously bothersome type of pests, often causing an early end to your nice backyard picnic or a day working on the lawn. Mosquito bites are irritating but that’s not the extent of it—mosquitoes can carry Yellow Fever, Malaria, Dengue, and other diseases. Removing standing water and treating your property can eliminate these pests from your property.

Termites  

According to the University of Massachusetts, subterranean termite colonies are responsible for the majority of termite damage. Although they tend to be a huge fear amongst just about every homeowner, they are a minor threat if they’re treated soon enough. If you have never had a termite inspection or you suspect that termites may be eating away at your home’s structural components, you should call your local Gloucester pest control experts at CleanPro.
