Benefits of Quarterly Pest ControlJanuary 13, 2017
Regular, quarterly pest control activities are a must, everyone knows this. But, why is it so? It is a fact that pests come in from literally any which where and just start invading our homes and territories pretty much like they were their own. They just pull no stops anywhere! Very soon their presence is felt everywhere in the home. There are a good many number of problems we rid ourselves of if we get our dose of quarterly pest control done.
Firstly, it is wise to always remember that pests such as cockroaches, rodents, flies, ants, ticks, fleas and mosquitoes are bearers of disease and malaise. They just have to be done away with, whatever else be the case. We do not want an epidemic coming raging onto us, our families or those who visit us, do we?
Also, it is an accepted fact that damage caused in the woodwork and even other places in any given area due to termites and carpenter ants et al is irreversible. Not only do they destroy almirahs, cupboards and other storage spaces, but they may even enter the beams which support the entire building. This will surely make the whole structure weak and more likely to just fall during events like earthquakes and floods.
Sometimes, we wait it out for a year or two to get pest control done. This is if the cost of getting such a treatment done seems a big amount to bear with. But when we realize the damage of not doing so each quarter, after witnessing invasion of pests first hand, we sit back and cry over the mistake we have done. Let it not happen to you in this manner. That you first get a pest invasion and then only you realize what you should have done in the first place.
There are some other facts and figures too which may help us decide upon a regular pest control treatment. About 20 per cent of the total food supply on planet earth gets consumed by rodents. Nearly 500,000 people in the United States need hospitalization due to insect bites and stings. As per records, about two million Americans suffer from allergies due to insect stings. Termites, if speaks on an average scale, incur damages on Americans to the tune of $5 billion. Bed bugs, which were on their way out of our lives, have resurfaced yet again. They make anyone’s life miserable in they infest our wooden beds or mattresses since they are nocturnal in nature and tend to come out of their hiding places at night to bite.
Getting into more details of diseases, it is a fact that Rodents like rats bite about 45,000 people annually. The aftermath may include diseases like rat bite fever, salmonella, plague, trichinosis and leptospirosis striking the bitten person.
