Apart from the fact that cockroaches are repulsive to look at, they also carry a range of disease-causing pathogens and have been implicated in food poisoning, typhoid, dysentery and the hepatitis virus. What starts out as a few cockroaches can quickly turn into a full-on plague in no time, and they will keep multiplying, leaving dried body parts and droppings all over your property, triggering allergies and asthma.
Other pests include ants, earwigs, fleas, millipedes, centipedes, ground beetles, sowbugs, mice, rats, wasps, spiders and carpet beetles.
In winter, mice seek out the warmth of the indoors, where they will produce disease carrying waste and multiply all season long. Their biology makes mice especially hard to control. In addition to spreading disease, rodents and other pests can cause significant damage to your home.
Professional Pest Control & Mouse Extermination
When it comes to ensuring the health of your family regular inspection is key. Homeservice Club’s experienced pest control professionals will identify where the pests enter your property, and advise on pest- and rodent-proofing.
The most important factors in preventing pest infestation, include limiting or removing access to food sources or nesting areas. Food should be stored in neat stacks in sealed, rodent-proof containers.
In storage areas, materials should be stacked away from the walls, and floors should be swept regularly, as this will ensure that fresh mouse droppings are detected immediately and can be remedied right away. Quality housekeeping and regular sanitation will aid pest control, as any issues will be easier to detect, making pest control measures more effective.
