Q. Are cockroaches harmful to humans?
A. In addition to being ugly, cockroaches pose a real health hazard to you and your family. Roaches carry and deposit microbes around your home that can make you sick. They can also trigger allergies and asthma attacks. If you have roaches in your home or workplace, it's important to control the problem as soon as possible.
Q. What are waterbugs, and do they really live in water?
A. What we often call a "waterbug" is actually an American cockroach. These winged roaches are large, reddish-brown and flat. Unlike the smaller German cockroach, which infests kitchens and other indoor areas, it's less common to see large groups of American cockroaches in homes. Still, you may see American cockroaches in your home or workplace in colder months as they go in search of warmth and food.
Q. What are earwigs?
A. Earwigs are small insects with pincer-like forceps on their abdomen. They live in small crevices of trees, logs and gardens and sometimes hide in basements, coming out at night to eat. They are not harmful to humans, but they can be a nuisance in the garden because they feed on many types of flowers, fruits and vegetables.
Q. Are silverfish harmful?
A. Silverfish - an insect named for its fishlike shape and silvery scales - do not carry disease. However, these pests are annoying to have in the house because they feed on book bindings, carpeting, clothes, photos and anything else that contains starchy or sugary material.
Q. My dog has fleas, so my vet gave him medicine. Will that get rid of the problem?
A. Although a flea treatment will get rid of the bugs on a dog or cat, that won't solve the problem completely. Fleas spend most of their time off the host animal and in other areas such as furniture, carpet and bedding. A professional pest control company such as Magic Touch Exterminating can make sure that your home is fully flea-free.
Q. I have crickets in my house. Do they bite? Are they harmful?
A. Unlike cockroaches, crickets do not carry disease, and they do not bite. Because they need a warm environment to survive, they will seek shelter in houses during the winter. Some cultures even consider it lucky to have a cricket in the house. However, they can be a nuisance because they may feed on carpet and clothing, and their nightly chirping can make it difficult to sleep.
Q. What are stink bugs?
A. Stink bugs are a grayish-brown, triangular-shaped bug that emit an unpleasant odor when crushed. They were first sighted in the eastern U.S. in 1996 and have become a fast-growing pest since then. During warm weather, clusters of stink bugs can gather on the sides of houses and other buildings. In addition to their number and smell, stink bugs are also harmful to gardens and crops.
