Don’t let wasps keep you away from the outdoors
Wasps are common in Mississauga. They rarely go out of their way to sting, but when they are disturbed, they turn hostile. Wasp stings can be excruciating and dangerous to those who are allergic to wasp venom. To keep away wasps from your property, consider sealing waste bins because wasps are attracted to exposed garbage and food sources. According to the Journal of Pest Management Science, peppermint oil can be used to repel wasps effectively. To eliminate wasp nests, consider calling Pestend Mississauga. The professional pest exterminators will identify the root cause of the wasp infestation and remove the wasps with the proper wasp removal equipment.
The risks associated with a cockroach infestation
Cockroaches are among the most common pests. However, they can be quite dangerous. The danger they pose to humans arises from their saliva, which contains a whole host of allergens that are potent enough to cause moderate to severe allergies in sensitive individuals. The worst thing about cockroaches is that they secrete their saliva almost continuously. That’s why if there are cockroaches present in the environment of a person who suffers from asthma, the individual may experience severe respiratory difficulties. That’s why it’s important to call a professional cockroach control company, like Pestend Missiauga, whenever you spot any sign of a cockroach infestation.
Beware of murder hornets
Of all insects, hornets and wasps are perhaps the ones that generate the most fear and dread across Mississauga. After ‘murder hornets’ or Asian giant hornets were spotted in North America last year, there was widespread fear that they would invade Canada.The social wasp species is native to East Asia and was first sighted in Vancouver Island in August 2019. It has since been regularly sighted near Washington State’s northwest corner. Although these hornets do not attack people, their venom can be more toxic as compared to stings of other bees and wasps. If you sight hornets or wasps of any kind, the best thing to do is to call Pestend Mississauga for safe wasp nest removal.
Rats are one of the most destructive pests
Rats can have a devastating effect on businesses, especially those in the food industry. Not only can they cause several illnesses, but can also negatively affect brand reputation, operating costs, and revenue. They are also known to gnaw on electrical cables, which can turn into a major fire hazard if they gnaw through to the copper and the wires short out. It can also lead to electrical equipment failure and production downtime. It is not just the food industry, but many businesses all over the world report machine downtime due to rats. If you are fighting a rat infestation, contact Pestend Mississauga today.
Mississauga has a Rat Problem
Mississauga is Ontario’s second-worst rat-infested city. Last year, one of the city’s neighbourhoods requested the regional government for financial aid in eliminating large numbers of these rodents. Both wild and pet rodents pose disease concerns. Rats and mice can spread over 35 diseases through direct human contact or via contact with rodent saliva or faeces. Signs of rodent presence in your house need immediate attention. Our Mississauga pest control services help residents make rodent infestation a thing of the past. We have different processes for rats and mice, focusing on complete elimination or your money back.
Those Bed Bugs Could Be Changing Your Home’s Microbiome
Every home has a bacterial community known as microbiome, in which the microbes coexist with us and affect the indoor air quality. It has been found, however, that homes infested with bed bugs have a different microbiome as compared to homes without bed bugs. A study compared nineteen homes infested with bed bugs and 11 homes without any bed bugs. When the infested homes were cleared of bed bugs, their microbiomes became very similar to the bed bug-free homes. These studies reveal a lot about how bed bugs affect indoor air quality. A bed bug exterminator must be contacted if your home is infested.
