As previously mentioned, termites can be a bit difficult to detect. For those of you that don’t know, these pests are tiny ant-like insects that feast on wood and other materials, though their almost-translucent appearance make it hard to detect with the naked eye. Another thing that makes termites significant is that the damage they can inflict can be massive in proportion, yet subtle in appearance—making it an arduous task to deal with.
Luckily, while they may be difficult to detect, there are several indicators that can help with dealing with termites. For instance, you can simply look for any traces of dirt in your home that they left behind, or you can check for any mounds of dirt that form a makeshift tunnel that leads into your home. With those signs in play, dealing with them yourself can be easy enough to manage, with several methods such as using insecticides, or using sunlight, or making makeshift traps out of cardboard.

These are pests, as mentioned before, of massive size. They can come and cause just as much havoc in your homes. Rodents can usually be in the form of rats or mice, both of which can be a nuisance to encounter, and particularly difficult to deal with.
The simplest way to deal with rodents like these is by luring them, either out of your home or to kill them. Since rats and mice are common in almost any household, exposing traces of food next to a trap of your making can be an effective way of driving them out of your home. In fact, traps such as mice/rat traps, sticky pads, and even something more technological-driven, such as ultrasonic signals, can be the best tools you can use for dealing with rodents like these.
