3 Signs You Need Year-Round Pest Control
With the year coming to a close, many people start planning out their next year. When you’re making your plans, be sure to consider whether year-round pest control should be one of them. Here are some signs that it may be a good idea to start the new year with a pest-free life.
1. You keep getting sick
Are you or your family regularly battling flu-like symptoms? It’s possible it’s not the flu at all. When bugs and rodents are roaming and crawling around your home, they are spreading harmful bacteria all over your counters, dishes, food, and much more. All that bacteria has been known to produce flu-like symptoms.
2. Allergies and Asthma
Cockroaches are known to be asthma and allergy triggers all over due to the viral and bacterial pathogens on their bodies and in their feces. Common allergy symptoms associated with pests include sneezing, runny nose, coughing, wheezing, and itchy eyes. Asthma symptoms associated with pests include the severe “air hunger” and tightness in the chest. If you or any of your family members are seeing this sort of activity and are unsure what the issue is, it’s possible that pest activity is triggering these symptoms.
3. Mud tubes or concerns of structural integrity
If you are seeing lines of mud going up the foundation of your home or up the walls in the basement, you likely have a termite infestation that could be costly. While mud tubes are one of the most common signs, you’d be surprised how often termites go unnoticed until the damage is extensive. That’s why we encourage customers to have us come inside and inspect their homes yearly to make sure they aren’t being overlooked. The structural integrity of your home is incredibly important, so make sure you’re taking steps to protect it.
If you are seeing any of these signs, it is important to call a pest professional to inspect your home and make sure that you and your loved ones are safe. Even if you aren’t seeing any of these signs but are seeing pest activity, a year-round pest control plan could be an easy and stress-free way of dealing with it.
