What Are the Hardest Household Pests to Get Rid Of?

There are all kinds of nuisance pests in a place like Central Florida—after all, they love the warm weather just as much as we do! Whether it’s those pesky fleas or the creepy crawlies like ants and spiders, it can feel like a never-ending battle trying to keep them out of your home. Unfortunately, some pests are much more difficult to get rid of than others. Here are the three hardest household pests to remove once they’ve set up shop in your space.

1. Termites

Termites are tiny but mighty pests that can cause substantial damage to a home. Termites eat wood, and if left uncontrolled, they can cause structural problems to a house. This can result in costly repairs, making it essential to get rid of termites as soon as possible. Unfortunately, getting rid of termites is not a straightforward task because they live inside the wood and are not often visible. You need the expert assistance of termite control professionals at Evergreen Lawn and Pest Control to detect and eradicate termites once and for all. DIY options are ineffective, often leaving the core of the infestation alive.

2. Mosquitoes

Mosquitoes are annoying and can transmit diseases such as dengue fever, malaria, West Nile virus, and the Zika virus. Eliminating the population of mosquitoes in the home is a challenging task since they breed in stagnant water, usually on a property. It means that homeowners need to eliminate any possible breeding areas (standing water) such as flower pots, water containers, and bird baths, among others.

Mosquito repellant and citronella candles can only go so far. With eco-friendly mosquito control treatments from the experts at Evergreen Lawn and Pest Control, you can enjoy a mosquito-free yard and make the most of your outdoor space.

3. Cockroaches

Cockroaches are common household pests, capable of triggering asthma and allergies. They are mostly active at night and are known to be one of the most resilient pests worldwide. These pests can live in challenging conditions, such as tiny cracks. They reproduce rapidly, making it difficult for homeowners to keep up with them.

Cockroaches are known to adapt to new environments quickly, making traditional pest control more complicated. Eliminating food resources and keeping a house clean can help reduce their population, but if they are already present in large numbers, homeowners have no choice but to seek professional pest control help.
