How bug removal can control disease

While very few diseases are actually caused by insects, insects spread many diseases. If you want to create a clean, healthy environment in your home, pest control is necessary. Here are a few reasons that removing bugs will prevent disease from spreading into your home.

Carrier Elimination: Mosquitoes, cockroaches, flies, and other insects that wander through your home are infested with bacteria, parasites, and viruses. Bugs have hairy legs and sticky feet that attract contaminants, which insects bring into your home. Getting rid of bugs reduces the risk of spreading disease.

In addition to passively carrying contaminants, some parasitic insects actively spread disease. Mosquitos, for instance, pierce the skin to feed on blood. If the person’s blood has a disease-causing organism then the mosquito will pick it up and transfer that disease to each individual the mosquito bites afterward. Eradicating bugs will reduce your chances contracting diseases from insect bites.

Dust Management: Cockroaches are the most common household pest. They reproduce quickly and carry microbes that are dangerous to humans, causing allergic reactions and asthma. Cockroaches also shed skin and excrement heavily, creating dust in your home that can aggravate your lungs. Complete cockroach removal is essential for maintaining a disease-free home.

While many products are available for bug removal, a professional will be able to properly handle and eradicate all of the bugs from your home in the most thorough and efficient manner. At Rest Assured Pest Control, our pest experts can provide affordable, permanent solutions for all your home pest control needs.

How infestations damage your home and your finances


Damage caused by Termites (series)

Between the mortgage, monthly expenses, and any remodeling plans, some homeowners may find that it’s a struggle just to stay within a monthly budget. When unfortunate and unexpected situations occur, homeowners may be forced to spend even more money in order to fix the problem. Termites make their home inside the walls and floors of homes, damaging the structure and stability of the living space and costing homeowners thousands of dollars. Here are a few things you look out for to make sure that your home, and your wallet, is safe from termite damage:

Know the difference between a termite and an ant:

Most homeowners do not know how to distinguish ants from termites. If termites are detected early, an exterminator may be able to eliminate the threat before serious damage is caused to the structure of the home. Recognizing a termite may mean the difference between affordable extermination and thousands of dollars in home repair.

Know your home and its surroundings:

Pay attention to any changes in the walls, baseboards, window sills, and door frames around your home, especially in the summer. Termites always enter homes from the outside first, so it is not uncommon for them to start eating away at the wood around your windows and doors before reaching other parts of the home. Termites may also wander around the inside your home and leave behind pepper-like fecal matter. If you see any of these signs, contact a termite exterminator to get a professional opinion.

If you suspect that your home is infested with termites or have any questions about what you can do to protect your home, contact Rest Assured Pest Control at (410) 317-8510. Our pest experts will work with you to ensure that your home is safe from termite damage
