If you have stinging, crawling, or flying bugs in your home or somewhere outside on your property, a professional pest control service can help you thoroughly eliminate the problem. A common concern that many people have before having pest control done in their homes is the safety of the chemicals the Exterminator in Columbia Maryland will use in their homes. Someone in the home may be elderly or an infant, or may have an illness that gives them a compromised immune system. People consider their pets as part of their family, and they’re concerned that the pet may be affected by fumes or may get into a spilled drop of some kind of chemical.
To treat a home for fleas, wasps, honey bees, bumble bees, hornets, yellow jackets, an Exterminator in Columbia Maryland will only use pest control products that are approved by the EPA. The technicians should be trained in the proper use of all products they use. They’ll have you remove your pets and kids to other rooms or outside while they’re treating the house.
Bed bugs are on the rise in the US. People can unwittingly bring them home after travel. They are nearly impossible to see, but when you place your suitcase down on a hotel room floor or even on the bed, the bugs crawl into your suitcase and hitch a ride home. Your luggage can pick up bedbugs when it’s placed in a pile of luggage in the cargo hold of a plane. Your carry-on luggage in the cabin can pick up bed bugs from other people’s smaller bags.
Your pets can pick up fleas outside and bring them into the house. The animal itches madly and scratches constantly, ending up with raw, painful skin. The people in the house can experience the same miserable itching from all the fleas in their beds, carpets, and upholstered furniture. Mosquitoes on the yard may seem like just a seasonal nuisance, but kids playing outside can soon be chased inside by all the biting mosquitoes. Mosquitoes are also a danger for pets, because pets can not only get bitten too, but mosquitoes also transmit heartworm to dogs and West Nile virus and other diseases.
