Insects are the most popular pest that many families tend to overlook until it’s become an infestation. These pesky little bugs such as silverfish, fleas, ants, and cockroaches all carry many diseases and bacteria which could potentially affect your health.
Mosquitos carry diseases such as Dengue fever, Zika virus, and West Nile virus. Within recent years these diseases have grown after mosquitos developed a resistance to repellants.
A typical sign of a flea infestation is seeing your four-legged pet itching and scratching. Once the flea is within your home, they continue to lay eggs and reproduce quickly spreading diseases and causing allergic reactions.
Flies aside from being irritating when buzzing around your home deposit bacteria upon every surface they touch. Each time they land they transfer diseases.
Cockroaches such as American, Brown-Banded, German, Oriental, and Smokey-Brown are common in Southwest Florida. When infesting your home, these harmless animals shed their skin and wastes into the air you breathe causing flareups of allergy and asthma symptoms.
