Why Is Pest Control Important During COVID-19?

pest-control-5-300x200.jpgPest control services have been instructed by the Department of Homeland Security and the state as essential. We know Myrtle Beach residents are spending a lot of their time at home with their loved ones, without the appropriate pest management in place, the threat of rodents and insects invading their houses will only grow.

Pest control is much more important in urban areas. Pests that depend on trash from local businesses and restaurants now operating on a smaller scale or totally closed down, are looking farther and harder for food. With the insufficient pest control services as well as the rise of pests will just lead to a perfect storm for pest infestation.

The threat of pests is both in and out. For instance, rats and mice require only a tiny crack to slip through and when they get inside the house, they will stay sheltered in your house, eating from your kitchen, and making use of undisturbed areas for their bathrooms and bedrooms. Rodent droppings could carry infectious diseases and the problem and damage they inflict on the drywall, electrical wires, as well as other materials could be costly and extensive to repair.

Another good example of pest issues that can have serious effects are mosquitoes and ticks. Because the pandemic is stopping people from moving too much, a lot of them are turning to their lawns and backyards for relaxation and exercise. Unfortunately, mosquito and tick activity is rising every day and with them, the threat of diseases spread by tick or mosquito bites. Encephalitis and Lyme disease are only some of the diseases spread by the bites of mosquitoes and ticks.

The National Pest Management Association said this about their existing situation, “Homeowners might see pests in a brand new and different places during the pandemic. Pests are known to easily adapt to the many changes in their setting and are quickly adapting to the new normal.

Failing to contact a pest control company at the very first sign of a pest problem, or the cancellation of pest control Myrtle Beach services, could create serious problems that can affect not only your health but also your property.
