4 Types of Pests You Need Professional Help With

Pests, even the term itself sounds annoying. These little things are, ironically, the biggest menace you can face at home or in the workplace. It isn’t just a matter of closing one eye when it comes to dealing with pests. When left to grow, they can cause serious damages to both your property, health, and safety.

What’s worse is that some of them aren’t easy to eradicate. Here are some bugs that you should consider calling a professional pest control company to help with:

1. Termites

It’s safe to say that these little ant-like insects do the worst damage to property. Termites feed on the dead plants, which includes your expensive oak furniture, timber floors and wooden beams. They thrive in warm Singaporean climate and the usual insecticide won’t help you get rid of them.

2. Mosquitoes

The recent Zika outbreak has got everyone alarmed, which prompted government bodies and residents’ committees to stop the breeding of mosquitoes. Besides causing annoying itches, mosquitoes are known to carry many types of diseases: dengue, malaria, and the recent Zika. Do not leave any containers that may collect water in your homes, as mosquitoes breed in stagnant water.

3. Flies

You may just think that they’re disgusting but harmless, but flies have been found to carry and transmit more than 65 diseases. These include typhoid, tuberculosis, and food poisoning. Their legs are where bacteria is carried, so you really don’t want these pests to land on anything at home.

4. Cockroaches

Every girl’s (and guy’s) biggest nightmare. Cockroaches are the most resilient living thing in the world, being able to live in the hottest and coldest climates in the world. It’s also reported that they might survive a nuclear explosion. They carry many dangerous germs, just like flies and mosquitoes, and could also cause allergies, eg. skin rashes, asthma, etc.
