Who Is The Big Blue Bug?

How Can Pests Damage My Home?
Not only can pests be a nuisance when they enter your home, they can also cause significant damage to your home’s structure and pose serious health risks to your family and pets. Termites are one of the most damaging pests in the United States, causing over a billion dollars in damage each year, often not covered by homeowners insurance. Termites and carpenter ants will both eat and dig away at your wooden structures, causing them to weaken through the years. Along with these problematic insects, rodents including mice, squirrels and rats can cause damage by:
Chewing through wires
Chewing through boxes and storage
Not only can they be destructive through searching for food, water and shelter, their feces and urine can cause serious health risks to your family. If any of these pests have invaded your home, do not hesitate; contact our Worcester pest control experts to schedule an appointment today!
Pest Prevention Tips For Worcester Homes
At Big Blue Bug, we’d like to offer a few helpful tips to keep annoying insects, rodents and pest birds from making their way into your home.
Clean up your kitchen – Regularly sweep or vacuum floors, clean countertops, eliminate clutter in cupboards and pantries and do not leave dirty dishes in the sink.
Secure outdoor trash cans – If trash cans are left near doors and windows of your home, make sure they are securely sealed, using bungee cords if necessary.
Trim trees and shrubs – Make sure they are trimmed back away from your home so that ants, spiders and squirrels cannot gain entry to your home.
Repair holes and cracks in your home – Seal holes around pipes, floorboards and around windows and doors, as well as repair holes in screens.
By following these simple steps, you will reduce and possibly eliminate pests from entering your home and keep your family safe from annoying and bothersome pests.
