  • ​Ticks are blood feeding parasites that are often found in tall grass
  • Changes in temperature and day length are some of the factors signaling a tick to seek a host

  • Shown to be linked with an allergic reaction in humans
  • Can transport microbes some of which are potentially dangerous to humans

  • Transmitter of diseases
  • Feed on the blood of wild animals, pets and humans

Bed bugs

  • Can cause skin rashes and allergic symptoms
  • ​Mainly active at night and capable of feeding unnoticed on hosts

  • Don't transmit disease to humans but do contaminate food
  • Found almost anywhere but prefer damp, moderate temperature places such as basements and under sinks
  • Dehumidfying reduces the moisture content of the air that these insects find essential: mend leaking pipes, ventilate
Bees & Wasps

  • Bees are good in that they pollenate and wasps control other pest populations 
  • Bees sting to defend themselves or their colony; it causes pain and other reactions
  • Wasps and especially yellow jackets can be more persistent and aggressive; they are notorious scavengers for our sweet human foods and drinks
