The Dangers Pests Bring Into Your Home

in Pest Control Tips Pioneer Pest Control 18/07/2014 | 0 Comments

“Welcome”

Most homes have huge mats emblazoned with this inviting word on their doorsteps. It’s a sign meant for greeting and ushering family members and guests inside your lovely home. It’s a fitting first greeting for visitors.

But what about unwelcome visitors such as ants, spiders, cockroaches, termites and rodents? Your hospitality is certainly not extended to these pests. Aside from being a nuisance, they are hazardous and can bring harm to you and your family.

Here are the specific dangers they bring to the home:

Carry Bacteria, Viruses and Diseases

Pests are dangerous carriers of bacteria and viruses. They’re also vectors of various diseases, which means they can pass the disease from one host to another and can cause the virus to spread through their droppings or bites. Here are some examples:

  • Mosquito – Dengue and malaria
  • Tick – Lyme disease
  • Cockroach – Salmonella and polio virus
  • Rodent – Leptospirosis

Contaminate Food

Pests’ urine, droppings and even saliva can cause serious health issues when they come into contact with your food. Pests go into your home for two things: to settle in and to look for food. Due to these reasons, your stack of groceries or freshly cooked dish will be sure targets. Sometimes no matter how hard you keep and store your food, they still find their way to them. The only solution here is to get home pest control services to eliminate this danger.

Inflict Painful and Dangerous Bites and Stings

As pests settle into your home, they have the tendency to get territorial. Sometimes when they’ve made your house into a breeding ground, they can also get protective of their young. This means there’s now the danger of suddenly getting bitten when you open a cupboard they’ve turned into their home; or when you attempt to tidy areas of your home which may have a horde of them inside.

Harm Pets

Aside from causing pain to humans, pests can harm your beloved pets at home. They can also contaminate your pets’ food and pass bacteria and diseases to them. If you haven’t been affected by pests yet, your pets can then become the carriers of these bacteria and pass them on to you.

Cause Damage to Your Home

Rodents gnaw on doors, cut through screens and break glass. Ants, spiders and cockroaches create homes out of a house’s nooks and corners causing damage to them. Termites also destroy wooden structures in the house. Additionally, statistics say that termites cause more damage to homes compared to fires.

Pests should never be welcome in your home. These five reasons are only some of the many dangers they cause to humans and pets. It’s important not to treat them as unavoidable companions inside your house because you can step up and get rid of them. They are nuisances you can go without if you choose to take action, like calling reliable pest control companies to finally take care of the problem.
