Just what is a pest?
Creatures like mice, termites and ants all play important roles in the ecosystem that sustain life on our planet. Unfortunately, they can also pose significant threats to our health, property and way of life. It is when creatures like these cross the threshold from friendly coexistence to threat that they become what we commonly refer to as household pests.
The word “pest,” as commonly used, suggests a relatively insignificant annoyance. But household pests can have an all too significant and damaging impact on our homes, health and daily life if not properly controlled.
