No matter how clean a house seems or how regularly the house is being swept and treated, there can never be any assurance that your home is safe from bugs, mites and other pests.
The common complaint heard from eco-friendly homes or houses that uses a lot of wood is that termites and their young suddenly emerge out of nowhere after some years of establishing their home. Other pests like bed bugs, dust mites and fleas also come rushing in without the owners knowing where they simply pop out from.
One might experience intense itching and pin pricking bites while sitting in a warm, cozy corner in one afternoon. There are no mosquitoes around or any visible insects about the place that might have caused the bites. Usually with this kind of experience, most people conclude that there are bed bugs and ticks in the sofa or in that corner of the house. They immediately call for the Pest Control Department who will spray just to give the service the customer demands without having to find out what type of pest causes the bites.
