Mosquitoes -- More than just a backyard pest, mosquitoes infect more than 300 million people a year with malaria and dengue fever, which are life-threatening diseases.
Ticks – These blood-sucking pests attach themselves to your dog (or to you) and can carry diseases as well.
Fire ants -- Native to South America, these stinging ants are now found as far away as China and Australia, and throughout the southern half of the U.S.
Termites -- Economic damages from termites start with $4 billion in treatment costs to stop them once spotted plus around $16 billion to repair or replace structures they’ve visited.
Gypsy Moths -- The moths annually strip bare around a million acres of trees in the U.S. They lay coin-sized egg masses that each hatch up to 1,000 caterpillars, all hungry for the leaves of oak, birch, poplar, willow and other trees.
Fleas -- They make dogs miserable by gnawing on them. Flea eggs, larvae and adults are found virtually everywhere, making it easy for dogs to pick them up and hard for pet owners to get rid of without vigilant treatment.
These are just SOME of the bad bugs in the world. For information on others and how we control them, visit www.DAExterminating.com or call 800-650-PEST.
