Pest invasion is something that a lot of people around the globe suffer from. Even if your house looks tidy and clean, this does not mean that there is no hidden threat. The best way to save ourselves from the problems caused by pests is by professional prevention. Proper pest control can be crucial for your property and/or crops because there are almost none of all the known DIY techniques that will do the job.
It is important to mention that different types of pests can be harmful for you in a different way and also, each type needs a different treatment. What also matters is if they are in your home, or in the garden, or if they can be neutralized with natural, eco-friendly pesticides. You would be happy to know that there are companies, such as Prudent Pest Control, which use only eco-safe solutions to help you get any kinds of pests removed.
Below, you can see the most common type of pests that you can suffer from.
These little creatures build their nests both inside the ground and in wood. They can cause irreversible damages to wooden structures, which can lead to expensive restoration and repairs. And because they are hard to be found before it is too late, it is recommended to have your house regularly checked. They are not so harmful for your health, but for the property itself. The best way to get them out of your house is via using special insecticides called termiticides.
Ants are usually capable of biting, which causes pain and discomfort. It is not threatening for your held condition, but having ants all over your house is definitely not one of the most precious and pleasant experiences. Excel Pest Control has a special ant treatment program, and using dedicated solutions, they can get rid of the ants for good.
According to WHO, cockroaches are capable of spreading different diseases, most likely allergies and can contaminate food when they are in contact with it. If not taken care of, they can even trigger asthma, so it is important to have them neutralized as soon as possible. While being one of the most common types of pests, cockroaches are one of the hardest to handle. This is why DIY methods like vinegar and so on, do not actually work. Professionals use special detergents which kill their eggs and ensure your house is protected from these creatures.
4. Mice and rats
Mice and rats are known to be one of the most dangerous and disease-spreading creatures. The large number of diseases they spread can be transferred directly to humans, not only via direct contact with the rodent but via the surface they were in contact with as well. They can spread plague, Lyme disease and many more. Another thing about them is that they can eat and chew wires, which increases the chances of fires. And because rodents are dangerous for both human’s health and property, special pest control is a MUST. There are some DIY methods that work on catching some of them, but these are not effective in rodent’s complete removal.
There are some kinds of flies, such as mosquitos, which are capable of transferring disease-causing organisms to your body. Besides that, it is a known fact that while they are fed with blood, they bite painfully. Most of the in-house flies do not bite, but they can contaminate food with different diseases, such as salmonella. To have them completely removed from your property, professionals use different kinds of pesticides or insecticides that can kill their eggs, which are usually not visible.
Proper pest control and special treatment for the different types of pests is important if we want to ensure ours and our property’s safeness. The fact that different types of pests can be harmful for humans in different ways clarifies why each type needs a different, dedicated treatment. This is why it is always a better idea to hire a specialist to handle all pest-related issues.
