The Pests In Your Roof That Your Pest Control Service Can Save You From

Updated: May 8, 2020

Pests can enter your house while you're unaware, through tiny cracks near the windows or the doors. Some cultures believe that lizards are guardians of homes. However, all pests, including lizards, can be harmful to your house.

Store-bought pesticides are not only inefficient in the elimination of pests but also toxic to humans. Therefore, you should preferably get in touch with professional pest control services to get rid of pests for you.

What are the different pests, and how do they affect you?

Now, you might be wondering why pest control and check-ups are necessary at all. In that case, listed below are different kinds of pests and how they affect your living.

1. Rodents

While some people keep rodents like guinea pigs and mice as pets, others would know how fatal they can be. Rodents carry and spread bacteria and viruses like hantavirus and salmonella. This results in maladies like rabies, plague, leptospirosis, tularemia, and others. These diseases are deadly enough to kill people.

Through your food, or even by walking on the kitchen countertop, they can transmit these diseases to humans. If a rodent bites or scratches a person, even then through the saliva, the transmission is possible. Rodent excreta on drying can lead to toxic fumes.

2. Cockroaches

Cockroaches may be much smaller than us in size, but their bodies contain allergen proteins. Coming in contact with their excreta, saliva, or body parts can lead to allergic reactions, including skin rashes.

Moreover, cockroaches can also cause acute asthma attacks. These insects live in warm temperatures, so they’re more common in highly populated cities. They carry bacteria like E. Coli and salmonella. They can lead to food poisoning or even severe diseases like diarrhea.

3. Termites and Moths

Termites are not like other pests since they usually do not carry bacteria or transmit diseases to humans. However, termites do feed on wood and can eat through your entire furniture once in your house. Moreover, there are bugs like moths, crickets, silverfish, and carpet beetles that feed on fibrous substances like clothes. These bugs can damage woolen clothes, cotton clothes, or even your blankets.

4. Bed Bugs

Like termites, bed bugs don’t lead to any diseases. However, bed bugs can lead to skin rashes and allergies like welts across your back. They hide in the nooks and corners of beds, and they’re nocturnal. Bug bites can lead to excessive itching and disturb your sleep cycle.

5. Flies and Mosquitoes

Houseflies and mosquitoes, like most of the other pests, carry and spread bacteria and viruses like Salmonella and E. Coli. They lead to diseases like gastroenteritis, cholera, typhoid, dysentery, and others. Mosquitoes are known for spreading malaria and dengue. They contaminate food and make the transmission of bacteria and viruses easier.

6. Other common pests

There are numerous other insects and bugs that can harm you, your family, and your house. These include lizards, fleas, ticks, ants, and they spread diseases like Lyme disease and respiratory illnesses.

Red ants, on the other hand, can contaminate food and cause food poisoning. Several of these pests lay eggs in their nests, and grow while they’re inside your house. As a result, using temporary methods is not enough to find the source and the eggs, and exterminate them.

Therefore, keeping in mind the above discussion, it is necessary for you to contact pest control agencies. Pests can lead to fatal health and property damages, putting lives at risk, and requiring money to spend on repairs. Get in touch with your local pest control services to lead a healthy lifestyle.
