Per a medical survey, there are over 500,000 individuals per year facing serious health issues from insect stings and bites. If you focus on deaths, it appears to be between 40 and 150 per year.

These dangerous disease-transmitting pests are mostly insects such as ticks, mosquitoes, and fleas. Diseases that are transmitted include plague, West Nile virus, malaria, and Lyme disease.

Bed bugs

Bed bugs also create lots of issues for people. Once they enter the home, their numbers flourish dramatically. Homeowners need to get help from professionals to stop their spread and eliminate them for good.


RatsRodents are responsible for spreading mites, fleas, and ticks in homes. Humans can be affected at higher levels by transmitted diseases, so it’s important to remove rodent infestations and prevent them from recurring.
