The Destruction of Your Valuables
Pests are not only harmful to people. They can also cause a great deal of damage to household objects. Carpenter ants, silverfish, and termites are just a few of the pests that are known for the destruction they can cause. Plus, they are quite tricky to detect.
Silverfish, for example, have a diet that consists of organic fibres, which means they will happily feed off of your photo albums, your books, even the boxes that you are keeping in storage.
Termites also will inflict a great deal of damage, much of which may go entirely unseen for several years. By the time it has spread far enough to be noticeable, the termites themselves are probably not the most significant concern you will have.
