Frequently Asked Questions About Pests
What are pests?
“Common pest invaders” refers to pests that may be frightening but are rarely dangerous. However, most common pests are a nuisance and unpleasant to encounter, which means that infestations still need to be taken care of with expert pest control services.
Types of pests you may frequently see around your Baltimore property include stink bugs, spiders, crickets, millipedes, and centipedes. If you are having trouble identifying infestations of these pests, our pest control specialists at ATC Pest Control will help you determine the type of pest causing problems on your property.
Are pests dangerous?
While most common pest invaders are more of a nuisance than dangerous, these insects and arachnids still bring a few problems to your property. Some pests can contaminate areas in your home with bacteria, such as salmonella, as they invade. And many pests present a risk of biting, especially if you accidentally get too close to them.
In most cases, bites from common pests won’t be too painful and don’t transmit serious diseases, but some individuals may suffer from allergic reactions from these bites. Some species of spider may also present serious risks; symptoms like difficulty breathing and swallowing after a spider bite should be met with immediate medical attention.
Why do I have a pest problem?
Most Baltimore properties pick up pest problems due to easy access to food, water, and sheltering spaces in both indoor and outdoor areas. Pests are attracted to these things and will easily slip inside interior areas in search of favorable conditions. Defeating a pest infestation means eradicating these pest attractants.
Where will I find pests?
Pests can be found outdoors, hiding in debris piles, long grasses, around trash cans, and in moist, secluded areas, or they can be found indoors, hiding around garages, attics, storage areas, basements, and crawl spaces.
