If you own a house in Salisbury, there is a good chance that you are sharing your home with several of North Carolina’s pest species. Some of the most common home invaders in the state are bed bugs, rodents, and ants. These pests are different in many ways, but each has the potential to cause serious harm to you and your family.
Bed bugs are becoming increasingly resistant to pesticides, and infestations are more common than ever. If you are not sensitive to their bites, your home may be full of hundreds of bed bugs before you are even aware of their presence. In addition to skin rashes, bed bug bites lead to anxiety and other psychological symptoms.
While many rodents are safe to keep as pets, their wild cousins tend to carry viruses, bacteria, and parasites on their bodies. If a wild rodent gets inside your home, these contaminants will be spread throughout the area and may even end up in your food. Rodents also cause property damage by chewing on walls, floors, and furniture.
Like rodents, ants tend to carry salmonella and other bacteria on their bodies. This bacteria may give you or a family member food poisoning if the ants infest your pantry or cupboards. Species such as the red imported fire ant also harm people with their venomous bites.
