In What Ways Do Pests Threaten My Family?
1) Rodents: Mice, rats, and other rodents are dirty. With or without biting they can spread bacteria and infectious diseases. Their urine and excrement can spread disease through deposits in food, or if a child comes into contact with it and then touches his or her mouth. Rodents can also carry diseases by means of parasites such as fleas, ticks, worms, and mites. Disease threats include Lyme Disease, Salmonella, and Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome (HPS), which is rare but deadly. Rodents can also cause allergies, and by chewing on wires, electrical and fire hazards. To effectively get rid of mice and other rodents, contact our qualified pest control service agents.
2) Ants: While most household ants don't spread disease, there are a few varieties known to spread pathogens and bacteria that can cause Salmonella, Pseudomonas, Clostridium, and Streptococcus. So in short. Ants can make you sick, and even more scary, these particular ants have even been discovered in hospitals. A bigger threat from ants is biting and stinging, which can cause significant irritation, especially to sensitive young skin. Like rodents, spotting ants can cause children to become excited and careless, which can lead to accidents. Finally, certain types of ants behave much like termites and may damage your home.
3) Termites: Termites don't usually carry diseases, but they are dangerous to your family in other ways. Because they quickly eat wood, a colony can rapidly destroy your home, creating financial hardship. Structural damage can easily go undetected, causing the risk of collapsing beams, posts, or heavy shelves. Once a year, termites develop wings and swarm, and they can be inhaled into the mouth and nose by small children. If you have termites and need to hire an exterminator, your pest control specialists will work with you to make sure it's as safe as possible for your family and pets. For pregnant women or households with infants, special precautions and all-natural termite control methods can be used.
4) Bed bugs: Bed bugs are known to carry many diseases, but they are not believed to transmit them. While you're sleeping, bed bugs will feed on your blood by poking their syringe-like mouths through your skin. They inject saliva into these bites, which causes extreme itching, swelling, and bumps. Rashes may develop on the sensitive skin of young children, and repeated exposure can cause allergic reactions, intense irritation, infection, psychological reactions, and insomnia. To successfully get rid of bed bugs takes a qualified exterminator.
