There are many different pests in the Brevard County, Florida area however there are two pests that so greatly affect homeownersthat many live in fear that they will become a problem in their home. These two pests are bed bugs and termites -- two pests that even termite and pest control companies consider to be especially tough to deal with.

Although at first glance termites and bed bugs may not seem similar, they do have a lot in common. They are both very small, often not very visible to the naked eye, and they both hide away best they can from humans, either within the walls for termites or within the mattress for bed bugs. They can also both be especially dangerous.

Termite exterminators are sure to tell you that termites can cause terrible damage to the interior or exterior structure of your home, as they like to eat wood. Meanwhile, bed bugs can actually bite you and your family members as you sleep, causing you to wake up with itchy skin of an unknown origin. Some people might find one of these things to be worse than the other, but no one should have to deal with either.

Unfortunately another thing that these two pests have in common is that they are very pervasive and tough to eliminate. Unlike ants or even rodents, termites and bed bugs are especially tricky to deal with as they have developed some resistance over time to traditional methodology. Also, since many people do not want a lot of harsh chemicals in their homes, that limits the number of options that termite and pest control companies can use.

For people who have termites, or suspect that they have termite damage, a termite exterminator needs to be contacted quickly before the problem escalates. There are many Florida termite control companies, given that this is a prevalent problem in the area. They have a lot of great methods for dealing with termites that can help resolve the problem as quickly as possible, without upsetting the day to day workings of your home. There are also environmentally-friendly methods that are better than total home fumigation which is what has been common in the past.

Likewise, a termite and pest control company should also be called when dealing with bed bugs. Even if you are not sure that is what is causing your bites and itchy skin, contact them and have them come examine your home and uncover the root of the problem. There are also a lot of great solutions for dealing with bed bugs, but you will not be able to get rid of the problem on your own.

Keep in mind that dealing with these pests may involve having to completely get rid of certain pieces of furniture and sometimes personal property like a stuffed animal that have been affected by the bed bugs. Although the exterminators will do their best to prevent this from being necessary, sometimes it must be done.
