Why You Should Consider Pest Control

pest controlNo one wants pests creeping and crawling around their home or yard. Some pests may not harm you, but they sure are annoying. Others, like insects, wildlife, and rodents, can cause significant damage and even spread diseases to your family and pets. Professional pest control is the solution to rid yourself of both troublesome and harmful pests.

What Are Common Pests At Home?

Troublesome pests include earwigs, most spiders, and stink bugs. On the other hand, harmful pests consist of rats, bedbugs, mosquitoes, termites, cockroaches, houseflies, raccoons, and ants.

Rodents don’t just damage your home; their droppings and urine can also spread diseases. Bedbugs have invaded countless homes and hotels, causing distress. Mosquitoes can transmit diseases through their bites, making them more than just irritating.

Termites cause billions of dollars in damages annually in the U.S. Meanwhile, cockroaches have been linked to diseases like Salmonellosis and hide in hard-to-reach places, making their presence hard to detect until it’s too late.

These are just a handful of the pests found in the United States, but they illustrate the importance of pest control. It’s important to remember that some insects and wildlife live outdoors and don’t invade your home or harm your yard; they won’t be discussed here.

While the list of harmful pests poses a threat to humans and domestic animals, there are other reasons that apply to various pests, such as:

Survival Instinct

Like humans, wildlife, rodents, and insects have basic survival needs—shelter, water, and food. Pests often invade human spaces because they find that sharing our shelter, water, and food is the easiest way to satisfy their needs.

Food Contamination

As pests seek to fulfill their survival needs, they can consume or contaminate our food. They may rest or walk across the food you’ve prepared or the surfaces where you cook, leaving behind harmful bacteria that can jeopardize your health.

Pest control involves reducing, removing, or eliminating pests from your home and property. This can be achieved through the use of pesticides, herbicides, fumigants, or natural and non-chemical solutions. In most cases, homeowners can purchase pest control products from home goods, garden, or retail stores. However, there are situations that call for the expertise of a pest control specialist like Zap Pest Control Inc.
