While you probably don’t enjoy having rodents or insects sharing your indoor and outdoor spaces, you may not realize that many of these pests actually present a danger to your family and home. The common mosquito can transmit several different diseases with a single bite, and these include encephalitis, West Nile virus and the Zika virus. Once rats make their way into your home, they can start a fire by chewing on electrical wires. Rats also spread several illnesses and diseases that include rat-bite fever, salmonella, and the deadly hantavirus. Carpenter ants pose a problem because they are capable of destroying the wood components of your home.
These Pests Are Active In Silver Spring 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.
