When dealing with wildlife, sometimes big problems come in small packages. Insects have been around much longer than us and will most likely be around long after we’re gone. One might not realize this, but millions of years have gone into optimizing the survival of these little arthropods. That’s why when they get into our houses, businesses, and other establishments it’s so difficult to manage. When dealing with infestations and are looking for exterminators, turn to the Wildlife X Team of Memphis for expert bug control. We’ll help you fix your insect problems and make sure they don’t happen again. Our trained technicians are here to help! 405.816.9700
Common Household Insects
Here in Tennesee, we have over 100 species of ants. This being said, the Tennessee Department of Agriculture specifically identifies Imported Fire Ants (IFA) as a key pest species in the state. A sting from this invasive species could require medical intention. IFAs also attack small domestic animals which can kill them. Along with physical harm to people and animals, fire ants also destroy the seeds of crops. Finally, these tiny creatures can chew on electrical wires which causes short circuits and other technical problems. These problems are not limited to Important Fire Ants; any ant population can cause harm to people, animals, and property.
There's nothing worse than finding out your furry friend has fleas; nothing except discovering that the fleas have spread to your home. Yes, fleas are horribly irritating to your pets, but the problems don't stop there. Fleas can cause your cats and dogs to develop skin issues and even get infected with tapeworms and other more serious parasites. It is important to get rid of fleas fast and to keep them away so your pets stay healthy and happy.
This group includes bees, hornets, wasps, yellow jackets, and scorpions. These pests are often harmless when their populations are controlled but can cause serious pain and allergic reactions. Stinging insects are known to build their nests and habitats around homes and yards. Specifically, European Hornets can make their way into homes and nest if the smallest hole is present. They are aggressive and their stings are very painful and can cause numbness, swelling, and even death to those who are allergic.
Termites serve an important role in the natural ecosystem. By eating cellulose which usually comes in the form of wood, they aid the breakdown of materials so it can be utilized again by nature. However, when they start to move into/onto manmade structures, they can seriously damage and ruin the structure. Annually, termites cause over $5 billion dollars in damage.
Cockroaches are some of the most difficult pests to handle and are the number one pest in homes and buildings. They breed incredibly fast and find hiding places throughout your home. They are also incredibly durable pests and difficult to remove. Cockroaches are common bacteria carriers, transmitting diseases such as E. Coli and Salmonella. Their feces may also trigger allergies and asthma.
