2 Mins read

As parents and responsible homeowners, it is our responsibility to provide the best care for our families. This includes giving the most nutritious foods, warmest clothing, and most stable shelter. This way, your family can grow healthily so you can all achieve your aspirations as a team. We do our best to keep them safe and healthy. However, there is one factor we can’t seem to shake that can compromise the well-being of our loved ones. Pests are unwanted insects that pose nuisances and dangers to human beings. If you only knew how disruptive problems are, you’ll be eager to put a pest control company on speed dial. Here are some of the annoyances caused by problems at home:

Damage to properties

According to entomologists, there are three types of pests. The first one is damaging insects. This includes the notorious termites, regarded by many as the silent destroyers. One termite colony consists of millions of blind termites that work 24/7.

If this colony happens to infest your structures, it’s only a matter of time before the damages become irretrievable. The worst part is, it’s difficult to spot signs of termite infestations. You will need a professional to assess their existence at home professionally. If you don’t hurry, it’ll cost you thousands of dollars to repair your home. If I were you, I’d have my house checked regularly to prevent the infestation of these pests.

Lethal diseases

The World Health Organization (WHO) raised the alarm because of the rising cases of pest-associated illnesses, especially in rural areas. One of the deadliest pests on their list is the mosquito, which affects millions of people in a year. Dengue fever alone affects 5 million people every year. If you add the Zika virus cases, Japanese Encephalitis, Malaria, and Yellow Fever, mosquitoes’ effects are catastrophic worldwide.

Another household pest that causes lethal illnesses is the house mouse and the rat. Apart from the damages they bring to our belongings, they also cause Hantavirus, Leptospirosis, Bubonic Plague, and many more. If not treated immediately, it could lead to serious complications, including death. Amidst the Coronavirus pandemic, a man in China was found dead because of Hantavirus. This raised an alarming fear among people thinking that it could be another threat to humanity. However, the Hantavirus cannot be transmitted from person to person. Only through the accidental ingestion of contaminated rat excrement, saliva, and urine can a person acquire the disease.

The general disruption of home activities

Some pests do not cause illnesses or damages, but they can bring discomfort. The most common example is the bee. Unlike most people think, bees are peaceful creatures. They don’t sting unless they are forced to do so. Their stingers are directly connected to their guts. When they sting humans or animals, the stinger rips along with the bee’s guts. Harmless as they are, they cause discomfort at home. If they build a hive in the attic or the basement, this could cause panic and anxiety at home. They can also build hives on nearby shrubs and trees. If this happens, children should not be allowed to play around it. If bees feel aggravated or threatened, they will not hesitate to protect their hive.

These are only some of the adverse effects of pest infestations. Imagine if your house is also infested by roaches, wasps, fleas, and bed bugs. You’ll be facing more than just frustration and annoyance. Start worrying about repair costs and hospitalization expenses. To prevent these problems from arising, have a pest control professional on speed dial and let them help you prevent and eliminate pests for good.
