Can you believe that eighteen years have passed since the turn of the century? Do you remember the Y2K bug as if it were yesterday? Do you remember all the hysteria? There were a lot of people saying the world was going to come to an end. But it didn't. And, when you have actual bugs (not virtual bugs) inside your home, it's not the end of the world. You can live with them. It's just so much nicer to live without them. Here are a few reasons to make 2018 the year you start living bug-free.
When termites get in, they can feed on the wood of your home and cause deep, systemic damage.
Many bugs damage clothing, furniture, keepsakes, curtains, tapestries, and other items in your home.
Wasps sting and their venom is dangerous for those who are allergic.
Bed bugs leave multiple bites and can plague a family.
Fire ants are irritating pests that can be dangerous to the elderly, the infirm, and helpless infants.
Boxelder bugs and other overwintering pests can stain walls, carpets, curtains, and furniture. They also die inside wall voids and become food for other pests.
When mice come in, they can bring secondary pests inside your home, like ticks. And all it takes is one blacklegged tick (deer tick) to spread Lyme disease, which can have lifelong medical implications.
Cockroaches are filthy pests that are as comfortable on a toilet rim as they are perched on your toothbrush.
When Indian meal moths hitchhike into your pantry, you'll find yourself opening more than one contaminated food package.
When mosquito populations are high in your yard, there is a greater chance of contracting a harmful mosquito-borne virus like Zika virus or West Nile virus.
Can you live with bites, stings, illness, repairs to your home, the loss of valuable belongings, and the nuisance of dealing with bugs on your walls and inside your food? Yup. But, it is so much better to seal those pests out of your home.
