What Pests Are Most Harmful? A Handy Guide.

When it comes to a pest infestation in your home or yard, there are no good ones. Any unwanted guests should be dealt with quickly to avoid things getting worse. Many can bring with them additional diseases that can harm you and your family. Others may bite and can cause you extreme discomfort. If you have any pests in your home, be sure to contact a pest control specialist as soon as possible to make sure things don't get worse.
Here are some of the worst pests to deal with.

7. Spiders

Depending on where you live, the problems spiders can cause vary in severity. Even those that aren't deadly can cause a serious infestation in a home and can be extremely hard to get rid of. They may venture inside when the weather starts to cool off. Some, like the yellow sac spider, can cause very itchy bites that take months to heal. You may find that they come into your house annually. The best way to deal with these is with a professional.

6. Hornets

When you have an infestation of hornets, you may not even want to leave your home. Hornets are much worse than honey bees. Their stings are more painful, and they are aggressive. Honey bees will leave you alone unless you bother them, but hornets will sting much more often.

5. Mosquitoes

Mosquitoes are notorious for being carriers of dangerous diseases such as malaria and the Zika virus. Their bites are also uncomfortable and can itch tremendously. They also make it very uncomfortable to be outside at all.

4. Ticks

Ticks are also known for being carriers of serious diseases. It's important to check yourself and your pets when you spend time outside, especially in long grass. They can easily infiltrate your home and cause even more problems.

3. Fleas

Fleas are another thing that carry diseases and cause great harm to you and your pets. They also reproduce extremely quickly, so make sure to get them taken care of as soon as you can.

2. Mice and Rats

Mice and rats are even worse because they can bring not only the problems associated with them directly but also fleas and ticks. They cause a variety of diseases that can be hard to diagnose.

1. Bed bugs

Bed bugs are listed here as the worst pest because they not only cause bites and discomfort, but they are extremely difficult to find and get rid of. While they don't generally carry disease, when you have an infestation of bed bugs, you need specialists to find them and help get rid of them because it's very difficult to do on your own.
