INSECTS CAUSE CAR CRASHES - (Norwood, MA)
Every so often you read things and are so amazed that you have to share this new found knowledge with others. I know a ton of interesting facts about insects and pest control
but to be honest, if you are not in the pest control industry you may not find these things as interesting as I do. This article I read may be the exception to this rule. It turns out that insects cause over 650,000 car accidents per year! The cost of damage from these accidents is over $44 million dollars! They interviewed over 1,000 motorists and they said insects are the second biggest disturbance. Turns out that 75% of these motorists stated that bugs in their car drove them to distraction to the point that 21% actually took their hands off the wheel, while another 4% slammed on their brakes. Here we are worried about texting and talking on the cell phone when driving when we have just as much to worry about with pests.
