South Bend IN Exterminator, Pest Control & Termite Inspector

South Bend Pest Pressure

Positioned on the St. Joseph River in Indiana, the city of South Bend is home to the University of Notre Dame, museums and historic homes. But that’s not all. The city’s population as well as its location and climate make it a hot spot for all types of pest activity, including termites. While Indiana may not be the most concentrated zone of termite activity, these tiny, wood-destroying pests can cause serious problems to South Bend homes. According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), it is estimated that termites cause billions of dollars worth of structural damage each year. In addition to the damage, property owners are said to spend roughly two billion dollars to treat termites. To help prevent termites, the EPA suggests keeping the soil near a home’s foundation dry, reducing openings that grant the pests access to the structure, and fixing leaks right away. Oftentimes once these pests are detected, it’s too late. Homeowners are urged to add annual inspections by a locally licensed professional to their housekeeping checklist to help keep their home free of termites.

Other pests, like bed bugs, also call South Bend home. These tiny, reddish-brown insects typically feed on the blood of humans and sometimes pets during the nighttime. While many think bed bugs are restricted to hotels, they can be found in a range of other public spaces, including universities, gyms, schools, daycares and homes, too. Although the bites from bed bugs are unpleasant and may cause loss of sleep and irritation, research has shown that bed bugs do not currently transmit any type of disease to humans, according to Indiana’s government website. In many infestation cases, the help of a licensed bed bug expert is required as these professionals have the training and tools to address infestations properly.
