Shelter and abundant food sources lure pests to Centreville and other cities in the area. Rodents and wildlife raid garbage cans in subdivisions, termites turn houses into meals and cockroaches take over homes in a matter of weeks. Pests and humans share the landscape together, so it’s only natural that the two collide when housing developments carve out the land. Residents and business owners will see increased pest infestations as the city expands and more people move to Centreville.
Pests come in every shape and form, from the smallest fleas to foot-long rats. Whether there are flies buzzing around your head or squirrels in your walls, pests are a nuisance in some way or another. Though some pests only aggravate people, others cause illnesses in certain situations. Mosquitoes transmit viral infections, rodents spread diseases like the hantavirus and roaches contaminate living spaces with everything from salmonella to gastroenteritis.
Being in the same area with certain pests has negative effects on your health. Rodent fur and dander can cause allergic reactions in people with sensitivities; roach carcasses can also trigger allergies. These reactions may happen even if the fur, dander or carcasses are behind the walls or in seldom-used parts of the home like the attic. The allergens get swept up in the vents and circulate throughout the house, decreasing the air quality and harming everyone inside.
These Pests Are Active In Centreville Now
No matter how secure your home might be, pests can find their way inside. They may enter unnoticed when you open your door, find a tiny crack around a window or locate another "secret passage" between your yard and your home. You may also carry them inside in a grocery bag or package. Once they have successfully invaded, their population will increase dramatically in a very short period. Cockroaches, mice, spiders and many other home invaders can pose a serious risk to your health, contaminate your food or damage your home and belongings. Eliminating pests, however, is a job that should be left to the professionals to ensure the safety of your pets and family as well as to make sure that the pests are truly gone. My Pest Pros has the training and experience to eliminate any type of pest that may be troubling you.
No matter what type of business you operate, pests are not going to help you retain customers or protect your investment. Cockroaches, for example, can ruin a restaurant's reputation, but they can also play havoc with customer loyalty at a grocery store, clothing boutique or hair salon. Bedbugs, mice or cockroaches can cause bookings at your hotel to plummet. Nor is it just your customers who may want to escape your business — your employees may be unhappy and spend more time worrying about the pests than handling their tasks. Whatever kind of pest is troubling your business, the experts at My Pest Pros has the solution.
For many decades, pesticides were the first strategy attempted for pest control. Growing concerns over the effects that pesticides were having on the environment, however, led to the development of alternative methods that were ecologically friendly. When you combine risk of environmental damage with the fact that many pests have developed varying degrees of immunity to traditional pesticides, it is easy to see the benefits of "green" pest control. Organic treatments, sanitation modifications and biological controls can often be the safest, most effective solution. At My Pest Pros, we practice this type of integrated pest management, which includes ensuring that pests are identified accurately and employing pesticides only as a last resort.
