You have to be aware that insects in your home are a real and dangerous problem.  Now is as good a time as ever to get your home checked from a excellent and trusted pest control company.  The National Pest Management Association warns that all CT homeowners insurance purchasers need to have their home bug free in order to avoid repair nightmares.

But what do you look for? Which are the bad bugs and which are the ones that aren’t a worry, like lady bugs?

-Stinging insects: Spring time is the perfect time for bees and wasps to come out in full force.  They’ll stay away from you unless you threaten their hives, but the bad part is that they often build their hives under horizontal surfaces like branches, gutters or beams that can be in an attic.

-Termite: We all know these little critters are killers for your home’s structure.  If you see one, don’t brush it off, there’s many more around, guaranteed. Call a pest control firm immediately.

-Carpenter Ants: Any wet or decaying wood? You’ll be sure to find these guys there reeking havoc on your home.  They’ll find the smallest of holes and cracks in a wall or door.  Remove sources of moisture from your home’s framing and that will greatly reduce your threat of carpenter ants.

So look out for these small, but powerful insects.  They can appear at any time, in any space in your home.  This is definitely something you don’t want to deal with, so take the necessary precautions to avoid this and the impending CT homeowners insurance claim that may need to be filed.
