Why call an exterminator?


Why call an exterminator?Spiders! Rats! Cockroaches! Oh, my! These pests and so many others often make their way into our homes in a search for food and shelter. Unfortunately, the nutrition they're after is often the same food we eat or sometimes, even our own bodies. The shelter they seek, it's your closet, attic and bed. It's your home, not theirs. Even when a pest infestation is obviously underway, people often put off calling in pest control experts out of embarrassment or fear of what the problem may actually be. At Direct Hit Pest Control in Rio Linda, we encourage you to call as soon as you suspect you may have unwanted guests, here's why.

Health concerns caused by pests

All types of pests can lead to some sort of health issue. Rats, mice and pigeons are carriers of several diseases, some of which can actually cause death in an otherwise healthy human. Cockroaches, ants and other small pests feed on your food, and while they're munching, they're depositing their own waste, in your snacks. That means when you go for a handful, not only are you grabbing the food you crave, but the excrement of these little bugs. You may even end up with a bug itself if you don't carefully inspect the ingredients. Eating contaminated foods can lead to diseases as well. By connecting with a pest control team when bugs are present, you can put your mind at ease knowing that you won't suffer from these health concerns or others.

Unsightly pests

While it may not be the number one reason to contact an exterminator, it is important to think about people's common fears. How many folks do you know that are scared of spiders or other bugs? Well rightfully so, these little creatures look quite terrifying. A comfortable home to live in is one that does not have anyone, or anything, residing in it except for the people and pets you love and care about.
