What Bugs Cause the Most Damage to Your Home?

With 15 years of experience in the pest control industry, we can keep these bugs from damaging your home or making your family sick.

As a homeowner, it’s important to be aware of the types of bugs that can cause damage to your home. Some insects can wreak havoc on the structural integrity of your house, while others can pose health risks to you, your family, and your pets. To prevent the damage these bugs can cause, it’s essential to schedule regular pest control to treat any infestations promptly.

Here are some of the most common bugs that can cause damage to a home and how Titan Pest & Wildlife can help you prevent them.

  • Termites Termites are one of the most destructive bugs in a home. They feed on wood, which can weaken the structure of your house over time. Termites can go undetected for years, causing extensive damage before homeowners even realize they have an infestation. Signs of a termite infestation include mud tubes on exterior walls, damaged or hollow-sounding wood, and discarded wings.
  • Carpenter AntsCarpenter ants are another insect that can cause significant damage to your home. They do not eat wood like termites, but they do burrow into it to create nests. Over time, this can weaken the structure of your house and lead to costly repairs.
  • Powderpost Beetles – Powderpost beetles are a type of wood-boring insect that can cause significant damage to wooden structures, furniture, and flooring. They lay their eggs in the cracks and crevices of the wood, and their larvae tunnel through the wood, leaving behind small holes and sawdust.
  • German Cockroaches – German cockroaches are a particularly nasty bug, as they harm humans. These roaches leave behind large amounts of feces that can trigger allergies and asthma symptoms. They carry and spread diseases such as salmonellosis, E. coli, typhoid fever, cholera, dysentery, gastroenteritis, listeriosis, and giardia. They transmit these diseases to people by walking over food, food-prep areas, and utensils.

While many types of bugs can cause damage to a home, termites, carpenter ants, powderpost beetles, and German cockroaches are some of the most common. By taking preventative measures and promptly addressing any infestations, you can protect your home and your family from the damage and health risks of these pests.
