Reasons Why Animals Become Pests In Your Home

Animals like rodents, arachnids, ants, and termites often invade human settlement areas. They are classified as pests. When they are out in their natural environment, they form a vital part of the natural ecosystem. They form part of the natural food chain.

They, in turn, eat grass seeds and fruits that have fallen off the trees in the forests. 

Arachnids like scorpions fulfill a similar role in the natural world. They eat insects like spiders, flies, locusts and other insects. Several of the larger species of scorpions will also eat small lizards, mice, and even other scorpions.

I was a little skeptical about how effective Parakito might be, as it seems like with or without a bug spray, I usually get bit, and two of my kids are equally appealing to bugs, but I had such great results with the fast, effective and long lasting gel roll on formula. Retailing at under $20, this is a must have for summer adventures with the kids.
