Health research states that three things have improved the quality of living over the past 35 years i.e. Pharmaceuticals, Medical Care and Pest Control. Statistics show pest control on top three as they protect most of commercial set ups and residential properties from health hazards by eliminating pests.
1. Pest control services protect us from health hazards
Many types of pests compromise our health either by inflicting painful stings or spreading serious diseases. Mosquito bites can cause Dengue fever and malaria. Rodents are known to spread Hantavirus and the plague. Similarly each pest causes some issue. Professional pest control programs help to keep pest population under control. This is the reason pest related health threats have reduced to a great extent.
2. Pest control services help us safe guard our property
Pests can cause significant damage to the structure of buildings inside and out. Consider termites, which cause more than Rs.5, 00, 00,000 in property damage annually. They damage wood, wall and foundation of the building. Cockroaches and rats cause damage to food and spread diseases. Pest professionals play a crucial role in protecting residential as well as commercial set ups from pests that have potential to destroy our homes.
3. Pest control services give us peace of mind
Seeing a cockroach scurry across in bathroom, bed bugs sucking blood in sleep or seeing rat’s teeth marks on food can cause anyone a good level of stress and anxiety. A pest professional creates a prevention and action plan that keeps pests out of house or office. The knowledge that our properties are protected from pests and its related health threats helps to reduce our stress and anxiety.
4. Pest control services deal with the root cause
While treating pest problems on our own, we can’t be sure if we have done necessary treatment for permanent elimination. We can probably eliminate pests using some method or other. However, pests may have left behind egg leading to birth of hundreds of creepy creatures within weeks.
A pest professional will ensure that pests and their eggs are gone and entry points sealed. In addition, they have experience and training in pest control, helping us with preventive measures too.
5. Pest control services protect one of our most basic needs
Problems of pests are not only faced in the residential set up but also in commercial properties. Commercial properties require more stringent pest control plan as the stakes are much higher. One of that setup is commercial food processing plants or food joints. And pest control professionals maintain sanitation of food sources and supplies.
6. Pest control services enables us to save money
Pest control will cost several hundred rupees a year. However, it can cost thousands of rupees in home repairs if termites or carpenter ant colonies invade our homes. We may not be able to detect the signs of pest infestations but pest professionals know exactly what to look for. The cost of pest control service is quite less compared to repairing prolonged wood and wall damage or health costs.
People tent to take pest control for granted as they are not able to see the larger picture. When they experience the damage and costs of pest related issues firsthand, they will realise the vital role of pest control in their lives.
