Ants are very easy to see. They tend to travel in groups and march in organized trails. Since they are so small, it’s not hard for them to gain entry inside your home.
The ant’s ability to cause damage is limited for some, but others are more dangerous. For example, the carpenter ant likes to take up residence inside the wood sources in your home, and this can weaken the structure of your home.
Rodents are good at hiding, so you may not notice that you have a rat or mouse infestation unless you are looking. However, these pests are not very tidy, and they will leave their droppings everywhere they can. They also like to gnaw on your furniture or your wiring. If this is the case, your home has a serious fire hazard.
Although rodents are larger than ants, they are still capable of squeezing through the cracks and crevices of a house. They can also gnaw small openings until they are large enough for them to enter.
Termites can cause a lot of damage within a home. As you may know, they eat wood, so you might notice piles of sawdust near your wooden furniture or walls if they are present. These pests also leave droppings that look like pellets, and they shed their wings. If you have sagging floors, walls or ceilings, the cause may be a termite infestation.
Ants, rodents and termites can cause serious damage inside your home. They may even make it so that it is unlivable. Before this can occur, give us a call at Better Termite & Pest Control for a free quote.
