Nuisance. Frustration. Discomfort. Embarrassment.
These are just four words that describe how you could feel when you discover an infestation of pests, from the smallest bug to animals that seem to like the comfort of your home, garden or business…
There is no doubt that any pest control problem is a nuisance, something else that needs handling in your already busy day. But it is something that needs dealing with and so you need a Barnetby pest control service that is responsive and effective.
Some pests are not so much dangerous, but a nuisance. Moths, carpet beetles, bedbugs, fleas etc. do not present a danger to human health, but are a nuisance.
Some pests however, can and do present a real danger to human health: cockroaches and flies, for example, cause cross contamination and also spread bacteria from organic matter (animal faeces, for example) across worktops, work surfaces and food.
Wasps and bees can deliver a nasty sting that, for some people, can be fatal.
Often, when we think that we have an infestation, we attempt to deal with it ourselves. Over the counter remedies and treatments can be ineffective and expensive, two things that can increase our sense of frustration!
Bedbugs, for example, are notorious for re-occurring when householders think that they have successfully eradicated them. This is because bedbug eggs can survive the chemical treatment, as well as the deep clean; the application of extreme heat or cold is needed hence washing clothes at 60° is essential, including being dried at a high temperature or a prolonged spell in the freezer.
Many people find the thought of having insects or other kinds of pests in or around their home a repulsive thought, hence the feeling of discomfort. Even though some pests may not be a threat to our health, they can cause us discomfort. Calling Barnetby pest control technicians is the best way forward to rid yourself of this discomfort.
Fleas, although not a danger to health, live off hosts as they need a regular supply of blood. They do this by biting through the soft skin and sucking at blood. The prefer cats or dogs to humans, but they can and do bites us! Unfortunately, for some people, this can lead to localised swelling or very itchy bites that may, in some cases, need medication.
Many customer delay calling a pest control service to their Barnetby home or business as they are embarrassed by being infested with pests, assuming that they are caused by poor hygiene or cleanliness within the property.
This is rarely the case as, like us humans, pests prefer clean, warm environments! Rats, for example, are attracted by clean, warm environments where they are unlikely to be disturbed by humans or predators; if there is food nearby that is a bonus too but they mainly look out for materials that they can use as nesting material.
