Pest control is necessary because rodents and insects carry diseases, infest kitchens and bedrooms, and bite humans and animals, says Richmond Pest Management. The purpose of removing any kind of pest from the home, garage, or yard is to keep the home safe and healthy, the company says. For example, rodents can leave feces on or near food they find kitchens. If contaminated food is consumed, it could cause serious illness. Pests of all kinds carry tough viruses and bacteria that require long-term treatment. Others can make existing medical conditions like asthma even worse.
Most bugs belong in an environment other than the home. If there are one or two, it is probably a random few that happened to fly or crawl in when pets are let out or items are brought in. Those are not a problem. But, when a homeowner or tenant sees insects on a regular basis after unsuccessfully getting rid of them with retail products, it’s likely that there is an infestation in the home.
It’s very important to call an exterminator immediately since insects carry disease and bacteria, like salmonella and E. coli. Each of these can cause serious intestinal illness, the company says. Discarded insect body-parts and excrement all contribute to unhealthy conditions, especially for people with lung-related health conditions.
Pest control is necessary to keep the home safe and sound. Pests like mice, cockroaches and others can make a nest in the home before the owner knows they are there. All it takes is one or two to start a colony. Then, within a matter of hours or days, they’ve made themselves comfortable and expect the human to pay the bill with the tenants health and safety.
"Before these freeloaders ruin a home, contact an exterminator as soon as there is any sign of pests presence," the company states.
