As pest managers, we have to ensure we effectively manage nuisance pests that can cause major damage to our properties, or certain health risks and diseases among humans and animals. We need to remember that pests are dependent on three primary factors to survive:
There are a few blood thirsty creatures out there that have an important job to play in cleaning up our planet, but too many of them in your home and office could start to make things pretty uncomfortable.
Dust Mites feed off human and animal skin cells, and other particles that are found in common household dust. If your home or office is not cleaned regularly, you can be sure to have thousands, if not millions, of dust mites crawling around you, your family and colleagues.
Bed Bugs are very versatile little creatures and can sneak in through the tiniest of cracks. They are only here for one reason, your blood!
Bed bugs have mouth parts that saw through the skin and inject saliva with anticoagulants and painkillers, so that they don’t wake you when they are feeding. The anticoagulants prevents blood from clotting to allow your blood to flow freely for a real dinner treat. Believe it or note, but bed bugs can drink up to three times their own body weight in one sitting. Human’s sensitivity can varies from extreme allergic reaction to no reaction at all.
Even in the cleanest of homes, it is very difficult get rid of ALL bugs, such as dust mites and in some cases, bed bugs. However, in less hygienic environments, we can often find hundreds of thousands, if not millions when it comes to a bug count… The videos below may just get you a little more vigilant when it comes to house cleaning?!
Fleas found on dogs or cats are actually cat fleas. If you have experienced a flea infestation, then you will know the extreme discomfort they can cause and the very reason why people never what to experience it again.
