But NOT controlling them in your home can cost you even more.

I remember an entomology class I had in college. The professor said, “all houses have bugs. Dirty houses have dirty ones; clean houses have clean ones. But they all have bugs.” The other night I found a large centipede in the master bathroom on the second floor. How (or why) it got there is beyond me, but it was impressive nonetheless. And, sure, it was “clean”, but imagine what would have happened if a guest or a potential buyer (or **shudder** an appraiser) had found it instead of me…

Looking over this article, we have encountered all of these pests at some point in the past.

  • Termites
  • Powderpost beetles
  • Carpenter ants
  • Honey bees
  • Fire ants
  • German cockroaches
  • Bed bugs

If insects in your home are preventing you from selling or are driving you out of your home entirely, let us know. 512-807-8777.

Note from Sue Ann: The bugs in the photo are from the unused upstairs in our business office. Time to call the pest control dudes! Just to show you we know what we’re talking about!
