Bees and Wasps
While it’s natural to have a few bees and wasps around the yard, too many can pose a serious danger to your family. Nests built near the house increase the risk of people and animals getting stung, especially when it comes to wasp nests. Wasps tend to be more aggressive than bees and may sting even when not provoked.
All bee and wasp stings are painful, but for those who are allergic, an unexpected encounter can be life-threatening. Reactions range from swelling and hives to anaphylactic shock. The more times a person gets stung, the worse the symptoms can become. If you find a nest on your property, leave it alone and call a pest control specialist to come and take care of it.
Seeing a few ants in the kitchen could mean that a full-blown infestation is brewing somewhere on the property. When ants find a reliable food source, they leave scent trails for their fellow colony members to follow. If there’s a nest in or around your home, it doesn’t take long for ants to overrun your kitchen. Outdoor ant colonies can spread so quickly that it may become unpleasant to spend time in the yard.
Ants sometimes nest inside of important home system components such as electrical boxes, and destructive carpenter ants will make themselves comfortable inside walls. Either situation can result in structural damage that’s expensive to fix. To prevent ants from getting into the house, seal all potential entry points and keep your kitchen as clean as possible.
Bed bugs can hitch a ride into your Wisconsin home on clothing, luggage or old furniture. They prefer to take up residence in the bedroom because the body heat and respiration of sleeping people guides them to an easy meal. Bed bugs also feed on animal blood, making them bad news if Fido or Fluffy likes to sleep in your bedroom.
Not everyone has the same reaction to bed bug bites. For most people, the only side effect is the development of red, itchy bumps. However, it is possible to be allergic to these pests, and this condition may provoke a more severe response.
