With the arrival of spring here in the Miami Valley, it is important to realize that spring showers and storms can cause water damage to your home. As if that weren't bad enough, water damage can also increase the likelihood of insect infestations. You are stressed enough because of the water, now you have to worry about bugs moving in.
Insects need water, food, and shelter to survive. By eliminating their water source, you can fend off infestations. That's why it is important to have ANY water damage loss cleaned up and dried up immediately.
What Bugs You The Most?
2. Another pest that thrives in water-damaged areas are roaches. Roaches feast on wet wood and the mold that grows on it. Roaches are known to be carriers of common disease pathogens and cause allergic reactions in many people.
3. Ants, especially carpenter ants, are attracted to wet wood. If even one carpenter ant finds water-damaged wood inside your home, it will send out a message to its entire herd that it has found a new and improved breeding ground. Soon you will have thousands of ants, literally, eating you out of house and home.
