Why Is House Bug Treatment Necessary?

Pests like rodents, cockroaches and termites can damage your house and cause diseases. They can also exacerbate health conditions such as asthma and allergies.

Sanitation and good housekeeping can prevent light house bug treatement of most pests, but more serious ones may require professional treatment. Keep reading to learn why you should treat your home regularly and what steps to take to prevent pests from getting into your home in the first place.

Mosquitoes

Mosquitoes are not just pesky creatures that make itching a nuisance — they carry pathogens that can infect humans and pets. A mosquito bite can cause a variety of diseases, including West Nile and Zika virus and thread-like parasites that affect dogs and cats.

They breed in standing water sources and can become very active around dusk, when they’re out searching for potential hosts. Mosquitoes are most common in areas with warm moist air, including the southern states.

It’s essential to eliminate mosquito-breeding sites to reduce their numbers. Eliminating any containers that hold water, such as birdbaths, flower pot saucers, buckets and toys will help. It is also important to clean out ponds and other water sources, as well as repairing cracks and holes in the septic tank. Larviciding is another method of controlling mosquitoes, killing mosquito larvae before they grow into biting adults. It is considered a better choice for mosquito control than fogging, and includes methoprene products and a bacteria called Bti.

Using repellents to deter mosquitoes helps, but it’s a good idea to hire a professional company that uses state-of-the-art technology for targeted mosquito control services. This approach eradicates breeding grounds and provides long-term relief from the nuisance, itchy bites and diseases.

Cockroaches

Cockroaches are omnivorous scavengers that can survive for about a month without food and a few days without water. They carry organisms that can cause disease in humans and also produce allergens that trigger allergies and asthma. Up to 60% of city dwellers have asthma and this condition is exacerbated by the presence of cockroaches in their homes and apartment buildings.

Cockroaches can grow to 2 inches in length and are identified by long thin antennas, six legs and shiny dark exoskeletons. The males have wings while the females are wingless and able to reproduce asexually. They mate with other females or with themselves and the eggs are laid in capsules that are ready to hatch after about 30 days.

These pests are notoriously difficult to eradicate because they hide and breed so quickly. Home treatment options include a diatomaceous earth solution which is applied to entry points and cracks. This powder contains fossilized algae and clings to roaches’ exoskeletons, dehydrating them and killing them (similar to borax). Gel baits lure cockroaches to eat them and contain insecticides that kill them. Roach foggers are aerosol sprays that fill a room with a chemical that paralyzes cockroaches and prevents them from moving around the treated area.

Fleas

Fleas feed on animals and humans, and their bites cause irritation and itching. These tiny insects can also transmit germs that can lead to diseases such as typhus and plague. A flea infestation is difficult to eradicate and requires a multi-faceted approach. In addition to treating pets and the premises, regular vacuuming, washing pet bedding in hot water, removing debris from crawl spaces and sealing entrances to basements, and using yard treatments can help keep these pests at bay.

Once flea eggs hatch into larvae, they hide in areas where pets rest and sleep, such as under sofa cushions and carpet fibers. Larvae feed on organic debris, dried blood and pet hair feces that accumulate in these protected areas before pupating into adults. Pupae are encased in silk-like cocoons that camouflage them from view, and they can last up to 7 months.

Thoroughly spray carpets, throw rugs and furniture where pets spend most of their time with flea-specific products that kill fleas at all stages of development. Vacuuming carpets and rugs thoroughly with a beater bar type vacuum will remove eggs, larvae, and pupae before they can mature into adults.

Bed Bugs

Bed bugs are small, reddish-brown, wingless insects about the size of an apple seed. They hide during the day and come out at night to feed on humans who snooze in infested beds, sofas or chairs. The bugs do not spread disease but the itchy bites can trigger severe skin reactions in some people.

Bed bug infestations can spread to other rooms or apartments if the pests are transported there in luggage, clothing and other belongings. Occupants can aid this dispersal by bringing in secondhand beds and furniture. Using ‘pitfall’ traps that wandering bed bugs fall into but cannot escape may be helpful, as well as periodic inspections by occupants or pest control technicians.

Washing bedding, curtains and clothing in hot water and drying them at the highest dryer setting is helpful in controlling these pests. Items that cannot be washed or placed in a dryer can sometimes be de-infested by wrapping them in plastic and exposing them to direct sunlight for a day. This method also works for stuffed animals and footwear. Fumigation with a penetrating gas is an alternative, but requires vacating the building for several days.

Centipedes

House centipedes are active hunters that feed on other arthropods such as insects and spiders. They live and thrive in moist areas and can enter homes during periods of high humidity. Although their elongated bodies and dozens of legs may seem intimidating, they should not be cause for alarm. Centipedes are not harmful to humans and can only bite when handled with bare hands or accidentally stepped on with a shoe.

Keeping houses dry and free of moisture is the best way to prevent these pest control and bed bugs. Repairing water leaks, using dehumidifiers in basements and running exhaust fans in bathrooms and attics can help reduce the conditions that attract them.

Removing items that provide shelter like piles of leaves, hay and firewood can also help prevent these pests from getting too close to the house. Applying residual products such as Avesta CS and Cyper WSP to cracks, crevices and entry points can further deter them. If you are noticing signs of a centipede problem, contact your local Western Exterminator office for a free pest inspection.
