The National Pest Management Association has honored all those in the pest control industry during the month of April. Many service industries and career paths get a designated time of year where their efforts get recognized and celebrated; those working in pest control management get a month to shine. Without professional pest control, the economy would feel the negative impacts quickly. Pests impose structural and vegetation damage, spread germs, bacteria, diseases and viruses, along with contributing to allergies and they can make grown man shriek. A Five Star Termite & Pest Control delves more into the need for pest control below.
Can You Get Sick from Roaches in Your House?
Cockroaches are plentiful everywhere. Cockroaches can quickly infest anywhere that provides convenient food, water and nesting resources, especially if the favorable climate conditions are present. Cockroaches aren’t the least bit picky about where they traverse, what they eat, or even where the sleep. They have been found in sewers, garbage heaps and any other gross, germ infested areas. Roaches easily pick up germs, bacteria, and diseases, and contaminate any surface they cross over. Along with that, roaches contribute to allergens. Thanks to pest control professionals, infestations are contained, and with routine maintenance programs, cockroaches are hindered from crossing into your home or business.
Are Stinging Insects Dangerous?
Stinging insects; bees, hornets, and wasps are beneficial to the environment, but their stings can be incredibly painful and some folks can have allergies ranging from mild to severe. When they choose to build their nests close by, they can pose a threat to those in close proximity as they are fierce protectors of their queen and their homes. Most know bees die off after the one sting, but wasps and hornets can attack repeatedly. Pest control experts can remove their nests from residential homes or commercial businesses to keep people and pets from harm.
Destructive Insects & Pests
Destructive pests come from rodents, birds, wildlife, carpenter ants and termites. They can quickly demolish structures, serviceable utility wiring and pipe system, personal property and anything else in their path. Animals tend to be motivated by the need to eat, drink and build nests with cellulose and organic materials. With their gnawing and clawing these pests not only go through walls and destroy anything in their path but they can spread disease, germs and bacteria, contaminating anything they come into contact with. The insects, carpenter ants and termites are notoriously known to eat and forge their way through wood.
Some Insects & Pests Feed on Blood
Blood suckers; mosquitoes, ticks, fleas and bed bugs are vile little critters. Most can be very hazardous to your health. Mosquitoes, ticks and fleas don’t all have infectious consequences, but a good percentage of their population can. When they attach themselves to their hosts, diseases and viruses, along with other ailments, can be transmitted. With pest control technicians fighting the good fight, many are spared from their harmful bites.
