Here is a list of crawling insects that are classed as pests, and why:
Bed bugs feed on human blood during the night, which can cause health implications. Their bite can lead to skin irritations and can cause allergic reactions.
Ants can pick up diseases, as they are constantly moving around different areas, where they can pick up bacteria and germs. They can also cause damage to infrastructure.
Cockroaches are attracted to the smell of human food, causing contamination. They can spread bacteria and diseases such as food poisoning and salmonella.
Fleas can cause skin irritations and can make your skin feel really itchy. They live on other pests and can be passed to your pets. They also carry diseases, such as the plague. Flea Pest Control
