RI, MA EHS Pest Control Blog

In a previous blog I mentioned the physical abilities of certain pests. I have also briefly touched on the dangers of pests. I think it is important to discuss the damage (health + property) that pests can cause. This is not desiged to scare you but to hopefully realize that pests should not be taken lightly. Without question the risks & stakes are too high to take a passive approach or attempt to do your own pest control. 

  • Termites do more damage than all fires, hurricanes and tornadoes combined. An estimated 1 billion dollars per year.
  • Pigeons carry over 25 diseases and the acid from their droppings damage surfaces.
  • One-in-five children in the United States have severe sensitivities to cockroach allergens, which increase the severity of asthma symptoms.
  • A pair of rodents can produce a pint of urine and over 10,000 droppings in just one year's time.
  • Rodents (rats/mice) are responsible for up to 25% of all fires of unknown origin.
  • Mosquitoes are the world's deadliest animal making 500 million people ill and killing over 1 million per year.
  • Over 1/4 million people in the U.S. get sick from tick borne diseases.
  • Fleas, ticks, and mosquitoes can transmit diseases, including heartworm, to your pests.
 
 These are just some of the of the scary facts on a few pests. Now you understand why we say IT'S YOUR WORLD. PROTECT IT!
