Most dangerous pests in the world - Goldenfalcon, Dubai

Some of the most dangerous pests in the world can be found inside our homes. Wikipedia defines a pest as an animal or plant detrimental to humans or human concerns. They can potentially damage your property or can even attack you with some deadly bites! Not only this, they carry diseases with them which can spread and affect your whole family.

If you encounter some pest in your home, then it becomes necessary for you to know whether it is hazardous to your health or is it harmless which causes nothing more than nuisance. To help you with this, we researched and compiled a list of most dangerous pests you must be aware of. Go ahead and read about them below:

1. Spiders

Needless to say, but spider is the most dangerous creature that can live in your home. Did you know that redback spider whose venom is 15 times stronger than rattlesnake’s was spotted in Dubai communities. And many other dangerous species of spiders were found too.

Spiders can live everywhere. They usually make their web along the dark corners or in the space between the walls. Spiders bite humans in self defence so it is better not to mess with them on your own and, instead, call pest control services in Dubai.

So next time you encounter this 8-legged creature, you know you must be careful, right?

2. Termites

Say hello to these non-stop eating machines! They don’t cause health problems, but they are very dangerous for your structures as wood is their favourite target. Let me tell you why they are dangerous. First, they never sleep, and they build their colonies 24 hours a day, everyday until they die! Second, they live in colonies and largest colony ever recorded contained 3 Million termites! Third, termites cause more than $5 billion in property damage.

 They reproduce so fast that it is better to get rid of them as soon as you come to know about their presence in your home. And they usually live undetected until they damage some wooden structure.

3. Bees and Wasps

When dangerous pests can fly, they become even more dangerous and annoying. One bee can only give a painful sting but when they sting en masse, you better be prepared for some serious health problems.

Wasps are aggressive and attack actively but bees only attack in self-defence. If there’s a hive somewhere near your home, then some bees might fly over to your home in search of fruits and flowers.

Bees and wasps are responsible for sending half a million people to the emergency room every year.

4. Mosquitoes

This “little fly” can drink up to three times its weight in blood! Mosquitoes cause a million deaths every year mostly by transmitting malaria disease. They are the carriers of various infections and can affect you too once they bite.

Heard about Zika outbreak? Well, that was because of the mosquitoes. Since transmittance of malaria causes the death of a child every 30 seconds, this has earned mosquito the title of being the most dangerous pest in the world.

So, it’s better to get rid of them before they cause any kind of nuisance.

5. Tseste fly

Sleeping sickness – This is the disease that this pest causes. And in addition to that, they transmit various other diseases too. Its bite causes headaches, tiredness, poor condition, and a change in personality along with confusion.

In nutshell, you don’t want to get bitten by this pest. It is so small that you would underestimate the health effects it will have on you. Read this article from BBC.

6. House Mouse

House mouse is unlike a rat. It’s dirty, carries diseases and grows a lot more faster than a rat. It also doesn’t need much water and food to survive. They carry various diseases like Hantavirus, salmonella in their excrement, fur and bites.
