Which pests are the most dangerous?

To ensure you get the answer you need, we’ll cover both of those questions. 

Let’s start with the most harmful to your wallet. 


Termites can cause significant damage to your home, and it’s bad enough, it could be unrepairable. There are two types of termites, one of the most common is the subterranean species.

They will begin by infesting your home and attacking your foundation. That can mean excavating and a lot more just to assess the damage that’s been caused. You can learn more about them here

What about pests that are harmful to your body? 

Bed bugs

Bed bugs have a bad reputation for a good reason. Not only do they multiply quickly and spread even quicker, but they also suck on your blood during the night. 

If you have any reason to believe that you have bed bugs, then you need to call a pest control professional as soon as possible to protect your health and safety. 


These are other pests that can cause serious health implications. They spread diseases and can irritate allergies. 

Cockroaches are tricky pests to deal with due to their ability to survive so much. If you have a cockroach infestation, you need to take the proper precautions. Among those should be cleaning and calling a pest control company immediately.
