Cockroaches are the most common household insects. They leave an offensive odor and feed on pet and human food. They can be able to transport microbes passively on their body surfaces, which are potentially dangerous to humans. They can also create allergic reactions in human beings. The major cause of allergic reactions is tropomyosin, which also causes asthma.
Termites in Utah tend to be classified differently depending on where they are found. For example, arid-land termite, eastern subterranean and western drywood termites are some of the main termite species found in this part of northern American. Popular areas in the home where these tiny little creatures can be seen include kitchens, backyards and pools of stagnant water seating somewhere in your compound. If you live in an area where termite activity is wide spread, then it’s advisable to maintain an effective termite control program to minimize the damages these bugs can cause to your house.
According to a recently concluded research carried out by the college of Agriculture in the University of Kentucky, termites can cause billions of dollars a year in damages, if allowed to hide in floor coverings, behind walls and other obstructions that are quite common in a home environment. Learning that one single colony of termites can have more 500,000 individual insects; it is quite easy to see why these pests can eat up more wood within a short period of time.
Although the presence of termites in your home is not something you can tell immediately, there are a few tell-tale signs that can confirm that your home is about to be infected by these annoying little bugs. Once these signs have been confirmed, you should act immediately and take the necessary preventive measures to ensure they are completely removed from your premise. For example, to identify if a flying termite or commonly known as a “swarmer” is in your home, seeing a few “swarmers” in your home kitchen could indicate there is a large colony lying somewhere nearby. If you see some mud tubes forming at the corner of your ceiling, then that is a good indication you are about to be encountered by subterranean termites.
