Some of the world’s most harmful insect species live in your household and they may expose your children to several diseases. Knowing which pests are dangerous can help you to choose the most effective strategy to minimize your family’s exposure to those pests who live in your home or garden. Our pest control management helps you with a regulation of the species which can be dangerous for your children’s health. These are the most harmful insects that you can find at home, especially in summer.
Usually, fleas get into a house on pets that spend time outdoors. These little animals are dangerous since they can spread all over your house. If you have noticed that your pet has fleas, you may prevent them from spreading by using flea combs and bathing pets regularly. Flea bites can be mistaken for chicken pox, since the first symptom is scratching. If this happens, make sure to discourage your child from scratching since that can bring bacteria to the site and lead to infection.
2. Bed Bugs
Bed bugs usually get into homes on clothing, furniture, luggage or any other thing that has been in an infested area. Getting rid of bed bugs is difficult and takes a combination of practices which include vacuuming every surface in your home, as well as sealing all the cracks and crevices. Instead of discarding your furniture or going through the entire long and complicated process of getting rid of the bugs yourself, it’s best to call a pest control professional. This way you are going to be sure that you got rid of the bed bugs completely. Getting rid of them is a difficult process, since these pests can survive 12 to 15 months without food.
3. Carpenter Ants
North American carpenter ants are the largest ants on the continent. They tunnel their way through wood to build colonies. Unlike termites, carpenter ants do not feast on wood. Their huge jaws are adept for eating other insects and drinking plant juices. They can also build colonies inside your home. Pest control is usually necessary to eliminate large infestations in your household.
Beside mice, rats, and roaches these species are most commonly found in any household. Since they can be dangerous for your children’s health, the only way to eliminate them permanently is by calling a pest control professional.
