We’ve been there– having a pest infestation is a stressful time, and what is even more stressful is having to deal with a particular pest that breeds and multiplies its numbers in your home.
That is why we’ve gathered a list of four of the hardest reproducing pests to get rid of and provide you with some insight on how to eliminate them for good.
Ants are hard to get rid of because they are so small and when you don't notice them, it's easy to think they're not there at all.
Unfortunately, while only one ant won't do much damage, you can bet that if you can see one, then another will be right behind him. They breed like crazy and within a day or two hundreds of ants could be battling for your soil (or your garbage).
When the ants come to the surface (to follow their scent trails) this is when getting rid of them becomes difficult. Pesticides won't work very well on them at this point, which is why using traps is your best option. Traps will help you get rid of ants without killing anything other than these pesky insects.
And if the traps aren’t cutting it, A-Academy Termite and Pest Control can help.
2. Bed Bugs
Bed bugs are a top contender for the worst pests to have in your home. They are notoriously hard to remove once they have infested your space. These bugs can be hard to get rid of because they don't come out during the day and hide in very small areas such as electrical outlets and cracks and crevices on headboards.
Bed bugs feed on blood and can reproduce rapidly. Many people are also allergic to them, and they cause allergic reactions such as skin rashes.
Controlling and eliminating them is a difficult and painstaking process that often requires the help of a pest control specialist or heat treatments performed by professionals. Luckily, A-Academy Termite and Pest Control specialize in bed bug removal in the New Jersey area.
Another top contender for the hardest pests to get rid of includes cockroaches. All it takes is the sight of one cockroach, its egg casings or fecal droppings during the day to know you have an infestation. Cockroaches usually like to come out at night. Otherwise, they stay hidden behind walls and wood paneling.
Getting rid of them requires a lot of patience since over-the-counter pesticides are not effective. The first step is to clean and throw away any food crumbs you might have around. Then, if necessary, make use of a natural cockroach repellent, such as tea tree oil. Besides that, cockroach traps may help, as well as spraying peppermint or lemon eucalyptus oil near places that roaches like to hang out.
However, professional pest control is the best way to go here. Even then, it may take up to four weeks for you to be completely rid of cockroaches.
Termites are hard to get rid of in homes because of their ability to build nests. These insects are tiny, but they can quickly invade your home and infest it with millions of termites.
When termite nests are established in the soil near homes, then you need to worry about exterminating them. Get rid of them on your own or hire a pest control professional to get rid of them for you. These pests must be eliminated before they cause damage to your home.
