Bedbugs should not be equated with filth or sanitation problems -- in hotels or in homes, for that matter. Bedbugs are very elusive, transient pests. They are often found in other areas besides the bed. And they are hardy. They can live for a year or more without eating and can withstand a wide range of temperatures from nearly freezing to 122 degrees Fahrenheit. Bedbugs can be controlled with vigilance, constant inspection and treatment by professional pest control companies. - According to Pestworld.org
Sealing all visible cracks, gaps and openings is the best way. However, full prevention is rarely a possibility.
Unless you have training in spider identification, you will likely not be able to tell whether a spider is venomous or not. It is also dangerous to try to get close enough to a spider's web to check its body for telling marks. Instead, let a professional investigate the spiders.
A colony of bees usually takes 2-3 days to completely die off. Sometimes it can take longer depending on the population of bees in a colony. When they are treated, the bees don’t die off right away because they still have bees going back and forth from the hive. We recommend that our customers wait at least 7 days for the colony to completely die off after the initial treatment. If there are still bees after the 7 days, we will return to retreat the colony at no additional cost.
Although ants do not pose a public health risk, they can contaminate food. Ants will walk over anything and everything to get to a good food source. That means that even if ants themselves do not transmit a serious disease (like mosquitos transmit malaria) they can deposit dirt, and even feces, from the dirty places they were in before entering your home. They can taint any food, making it unsuitable to eat.
