Do Household Pests Pose A Health Danger To Humans?
It really depends on the species. For example, the cockroach species poses health risks, such as salmonella, Shigella, and E. coli. The cockroach has also been linked to asthma in young children, living in infested homes. Fleas, on the other hand, pose health risks to animals. Fleas spread murine typhus, cat scratch fever, tapeworms, plague, and anaplasmosis.
Ladybugs, earwigs, and centipedes are nuisance pests, not human health risks. Flies and mosquitoes are also dangerous insect species, as both spread diseases to humans.
What Is The Most Effective Residential Pest Strategy?
Residential pest control is broken down into two categories – professional and do-it-yourself. Professional pest management utilizes adhesive traps, inspections, and industrial-strength pesticides. Do-it-yourself pest control utilizes over-the-counter adhesive traps standard-grade pesticides. The only inspection is the one conducted by the property owner.
