Pests. That’s what they are, annoying and pesky. However, that’s not all they are! Rodents and insects carry diseases so removing them from your home not only aids in easing stress but also helps keep you and your family safe and healthy.
Some carry viruses and bacteria that can require long-term treatment, and others can make existing medical conditions exacerbated.
Insects, Spiders and Bugs
Insects, bugs and spiders can carry diseases and bacteria such as E. Coli or salmonella. Even their sheds or excrement can contribute to lung related health conditions, which is why it is so important to call a professional if you have an infestation in your home.
Most of the time some random bugs or flies will enter your home after kids running in and out of the house, or bringing in the groceries. Those are not the problem, but keeping an eye out for regular visitors is very important.
Rodents – Rats and Mice
Did you know rats carry many viruses? Even in this part of the country, they can carry salmonella, hantavirus, and the bubonic plague! These little guys scurry thousands of miles per year assembling fleas and nasty diseases that are highly harmful to us humans.
Mice and rats are also highly destructive! They can chew through just about anything like wire, walls, pipes as well as destroying insulation. Rodents can cost you anywhere from $3-$10 thousand dollars worth of damage in a short 3 to 6 month time frame.
A professional pest control technician will help keep you, your family, and your bank account safe by keeping these rodents far from your home.
Wasps are aggressive predators and their stings can be deadly to certain people. These menaces make their homes in different parts of your home or your lawn or garden. If provoked, the greatest danger comes from their ability to sting over and over. Some people have allergies to bee stings which can cause almost instant death by one sting! This is why it is so important to remove any visible nests or hives as soon as possible.
Pest Control Is Necessary to Keep Your Family Safe
It’s unfortunately common for pests to make your home theirs without even noticing until it’s too late. It takes just a matter of hours to days for an infestation to start, and before you know it they’ve made themselves comfortable in your home.
