Cockroaches and rodents are notorious for leaving behind filthy surprises that contaminate the air quality. The waste & decaying bodies from these pests contain proteins that release airborne allergens which trigger asthma attacks. Rodent droppings can contain Hantavirus and be the cause of influenza & measles.
Overtime dead cockroach bodies will harden and become brittle. The body can crumble and turn in dust that is inhaled by humans. Children are especially susceptible to pest allergens and a majority of kids receive asthma-related complications from pest droppings and carcasses.
Fortunately, you can take action to reduce the statistic and keep your home healthy and your family happy. As in most pest control cases, prevention is much easier than an actual elimination. And you can do most of the remedies yourself.
To keep pests away, make Integrated Pest Management techniques a habit in your routine. Cleaning food crumbs and liquid spills up daily can significantly reduce the pest population in your home. But don’t just clean the surface; instead do an occasional deep cleaning behind home appliances and underneath furniture to keep hiding areas for pests clear of food.
A spotless area under your furniture make pest uneasy and less likely to nest in your home.
Also, seal any openings that lead into your home’s structure. Sealing openings around pipes &wiring into your home, installing door sweeps, and putting up screens on windows will help control pests & rodents on your property.
