How a Pest-Free Home Keeps You Healthy [INFOGRAPHIC]

No one likes living with pests, but when people schedule fumigation service, they’re usually thinking about the nuisance factor, and not their health. In reality, sharing your home with pests can put the wellbeing of your family in jeopardy. Consider cockroaches, for instance. These pests can trigger asthma symptoms, cause skin rashes, and carry harmful bacteria like E. coli and salmonella into your home. Rodent control is important to prevent the spread of bacteria and diseases like dangerous hantavirus.

Understanding the Importance of Rodent Control

San Diego Rodent Control

Keeping your home safe, comfortable, and healthy is important to most people, especially those who have families. If you find any unwanted house guests in your home, rodent control in San Diego becomes necessary. Read on for help in understanding the importance of rodent control.

Damage
When rodents, termites, or other pests move into your home, they rarely do so without making their presence known. They typically create their own entrances to your home and then feed off of your scraps or improperly stored food; although they are often unseen, their intrusion is noticeable. Wild animals will attempt to chew or gnaw through almost anything, and when they invade your home this typically translates into boxes, wires, or structural materials that affect the integrity of your home.

Disease
Certain rodents may carry a variety of harmful diseases that can be transmitted to humans in a number of ways. Rodents may transmit diseases through bites, physical contact, or even their fecal matter. Some diseases that humans may acquire from these interactions include rat-bite fever, tularemia, salmonellosis, and Hantavirus pulmonary syndrome. Some of these diseases can even be acquired when you breathe in dust that has been contaminated by a rodent’s feces or urine. The only way to make sure that you are not susceptible to these conditions is by fully eliminating rodents and their droppings from your home; this may require the help of a professional pest control service.

Discomfort
Many people experience psychological discomfort when they know there are rodents in the house whether they can see them or not. In addition to the physical damage they can cause and the diseases they can transmit, rodents have a tendency of getting under your skin. Rodent control can permanently reverse these problems.

All About Subterranean Termites

Part 1 Subterranean Termites from Info Link on Vimeo.

Although they tend to have similar characteristics and habits, there are several different species of termites in San Diego. Watch this video clip to learn all about subterranean termites.

Subterranean termites get their name from their underground habitats. Using mud, feces, and saliva, this type of termite builds mud tubes that connect their underground habitats to their above ground sources of food. Colonies of subterranean termites are made up of workers, soldiers, and reproductive caste members. These pests’ first choice for a meal is outdoor wood like dead trees, but they will move on to wooden household structures if necessary.

If you would like to know more about subterranean termites, feel free to call the pest control professionals at Payne Pest Management at (877) 365-5629. In addition to termite control, we also specialize in bed bug extermination and rodent control in the San Diego area. You can find out more about our services by visiting our website.

Spotlight on How to Check for Bed Bugs

How to Check for Bed Bugs

Pests are not always the easiest to find, even when you think they may be around. Bed bugs in San Diego have very particular habits, however, so there are certain ways you should look for them. Read on as we put the spotlight on how to check for bed bugs.

What to Look For
Bed bugs typically leave several distinct pieces of evidence that confirm their presence. You may find skins that the bed bugs have shed, or you may even see the bugs themselves. Bed bugs may grow to be about the size of an apple seed, but they may also be much smaller. More commonly you will find stains created from droppings, which are dark in color because they survive by consuming blood. In some cases you may even find miniscule bed bug eggs in adult hiding places or areas where you also find feces.

Where to Look
There are a few typical places to look if you are suspicious that you may have a bed bug infestation. Bed bugs tend to live around the vicinity of the sleeping area, so inspect every component of your bed. Look through your sheets and blankets, pillowcases and pillows, and seams of your mattress and box spring. Make sure that no space is left uninspected; bed bugs can be microscopic in size, so it is wise to be as thorough as possible in your inspection.

Where Else to Look
While the immediate vicinity of the sleeping area is a hot spot for bed bugs, they may also turn up in some other locations. Even if you do not find any evidence of bed bugs in your sheets or blankets, look at nearby lamps, clocks, jewelry boxes, or stuffed animals. Bed bugs have been found in places as obscure as dictionaries and computers.

Payne Pest Management is proud to help the San Diego area when it comes to getting rid of bed bugs. We also specialize in termites and rodent control. If you would like to know more about our pest control services, please do not hesitate to visit our website or give us a call at (877) 365-5629.
