Not all bugs, stinging insects, etc. are pests. They are only considered “pests” when they start causing harm or
are a potential risk of danger to people, other animals and properties.
What are the common damaging effects of pests? Read on to know more about this topic.

Diseases

Termites, flies, fleas, bedbugs, cockroaches, rodents and mosquitos are just some of the common carriers of
deadly diseases. Some of the well-known sicknesses caused by these vectors are Dengue fever, Lyme disease,
Salmonella, Tick-borne Encephalitis, Malaria, Zika virus, rabies, plague, American Trypanosomiasis and more.

Allergies and Venom

Illnesses are not the only threat that pests pose to humans. Many of them carry or release allergens that can
cause distressful reactions to humans. Some even have poisonous venom that can harm and often times kill.
Examples would be the venomous spiders known as black widows and brown recluse. Their bites can cause
significant health problems that also can lead to death if left untreated. Several insects and bugs like hornets,
wasps and bees sting which can cause severe, lethal, and deadly irritations to human bodies.

House Damage

Pests would most likely cause structural damage to your home and property if they are left untreated. An infestation allows them to take over an area. Sadly, you’ll soon find yourself in need of necessary repairs,
sometimes even a renovation due to the destruction caused by these pests. Rodents like rats often chew electrical wires that can be a real cause for short circuits leading to possible house fires. Termites love humid environments. Houses made of wood or have wooden furniture are at risk of serious termite damage. These nuisance bugs are estimated to affect 600,000 American homes in which the average price to repair the damage is $3,300.
