I HATE bugs! No, I seriously freak out at the sight of anything that has more legs than I do. It's just my luck that we move into a house that back up to a wooded area. With all of the trees in my yard come bugs that I've never ever even seen before. The back of my house is all windows so when the lights are on at night it's a total bug magnet. All I hear from my girls is, "Bug Bug Bug"! I do my best to kill them by squishing them in toilet paper (with many layers) while my husband isn't here but if he's home I'm not going near them. Funny thing is my husband has a phobia of rodents and I think they are absolutely adorable! He will jump on to whatever he can and squeal like a little girl if he thinks there is a mouse anywhere near him. It's quite hilarious.
One thing that isn't funny is Lyme Disease. I am terrified of it, especially now that I found a tick on the dog and I've seen mosquitoes the size of my head in our house. And not only am I worried about Ticks but Termites and all the other insects I have never seen. My first priority is to protect my family and my home so I found this awesome site that will help me identify the bugs I find. PestWorld.org was the exact resource I needed to help me know what I should and shouldn't be fearful of and which pests should prompt me to get immediate professional pest help. PestWorld.org will also help me find a pest professional in our area. Not lying, I honestly have this awesome bookmarked on my laptop and I've referenced it about 100x in the last week!! If insects, rodents or spiders aren't a problem for your family I bet your kids would still love to look at all the cool pics and learn about these creepy little monsters... I know mine do.
PestWorld.org is your go-to resource for everything you need to know about bugs, rodents and other household pests. You can identify your infestation, find helpful prevention tips, pest photography and videos, educational articles on a variety of pest topics, and more.
