Sow bugs and Pillbugs are similar-looking pests that are more closely related to shrimp and crayfish than to insects but have adapted to living on land in moist environments. Although they can sometimes enter buildings by mistake, they are no more than a nuisance by their presence. They do not infest food, clothing or wood.
A termite infestation can be a homeowner's worst nightmare. The thought of the pests eating away at your home can send anyone into a panic. Termites need to be treated by a pest control professional as soon as the problem is noticed, or they can cause serious and expensive damage to your house. Noticing signs of termites early can be tricky, but there are small signs to look out for if you live in an area prone to termite damage. Once an infestation is confirmed, an exterminator can recommend the best form of treatment.
