Fortunately for most of us the common American pests are not really life threatening although some of them can be destructive both inside our dwellings and in our gardens. Some do pose health hazards but, by and large, they are relatively easy to deal with or avoid altogether with effective pest control in Elk Grove or anywhere else.
Imports Versus Indigenous
While many of our native ants, spiders, bees or wasps have the ability to sting or bite us; their actions are rarely fatal (unless the victim has an extreme allergic response). Reports of swarms of alien “killer bees” crossing our borders and causing havoc are usually grossly exaggerated or little more than modern day urban legends. As are reports of major problems arising from exotic spider bites or attacks from red imported fire ants.
Pest Control By Prevention
While we might not be in mortal danger from our local pests; we definitely do not want them crawling all over us or getting onto our plates of food. Prevention is the better part of cure and the best prevention comes with good housekeeping. Pests usually come inside our homes in their continual quest for food – often, the only time we see them is when they are out foraging. That trail of ants from and to the kitchen sink usually only occurs when the surfaces are damp and there are remains from our food hanging around.
Spiders are arachnid arthropods that differ from most other pests in so much as they are hunting for prey when they enter our homes. Since their prey includes many of the insects that we wish to keep outside; spiders could be viewed as beneficial pests. Unfortunately, most spiders use webs to catch their prey and these are considered to be a sign of a badly cleaned household. Therefore, spiders are on the list of candidates for Elk Grove Pest Control.
When Prevention Fails
If, somehow, your preventative actions seem to have failed and you have tried different insecticides from the shops; but, your home has become infested – what should you do next? At this point, the best thing to do is to seek the help of a tried and tested company that specializes in Elk Grove Pest Control and have them come and exterminate your problem. APEX Pest Control INC. is such a company and they have been keeping homes throughout the greater Sacramento area pest free for more than 30 years.
