You would think a tidy and well-kept home is more pest-free. Not necessarily. There are many reasons pests can be attracted, and most of them have nothing to do with cleaning. While some pests are obvious, others can hide from homeowners for years without being noticed. Every homeowner should consider regular pest control for many reasons.
Do-it-yourself isn’t always enough
While many DIY treatments seem to be effective, they are only able to address the tip of an iceberg. Home remedies and most store-bought treatments are limited to what is visible. Often, the root cause of your infestation lies hidden.
It is crucial to call a professional pest control company immediately if you notice an infestation. The professionals at Zap Pest are trained to eliminate an infestation from its source.
Pests pose real health threats
Public health officials attribute the current high quality of life to three important factors: top-quality vaccines and medication, improved sanitation, and residential and commercial pest control.
Many pests are capable of transmitting deadly diseases, including ticks and rodents.
Hantavirus can be transmitted to humans from rats and mice. Lyme disease is a virus that ticks can carry, and it causes flu-like symptoms. The West Nile Virus and Zika are all possible diseases that mosquitoes can carry. It is impossible to tell whether pests are carrying a disease, so it is better to be safe than sorry.
Property and Belongings Damage
Many pests that invade homes are attracted to food sources. The wood-faring insects, like termites and carpenter bugs, can cause major damage to your home. They live in the walls and cause damage often before people even realize they are there. Carpet beetles, silverfish, and other pests like carpet beetles love organic fibers and will eat your possessions. You are at high risk of causing damage to your towels, blankets, clothes, blankets, and couches. Pest control professionals can inspect your home and take care of any pests you may not be aware of.
Food Safety & Health
Both commercial and residential pest control is important, especially when it involves food.
Food service businesses often deal with rodents and cockroaches. Pests like Indian meal moths and odorous house ants can find their way into your home and make a meal of your favorite snacks.
Aphids are another pest that can prevent the growth of vegetables and fruits in your garden. Many of these pests can carry diseases or inflict food poisoning by living in your food.
Contact your local pest control company to ensure your food is safe.
A happy home will be pest-free. Even the smallest unwanted creature can cause major headaches.
